GPL is The GAME PLAY LEARN Philosophy
GPL was developed by Former Matilda and FFA A-Licence Coach Joey Peters who has experienced a successful professional football career and appreciates the value of the Sporting Experience for human potential yet also knows the futility of ego-driven, win-at-all-costs coaching methods.
Joey sought answers for something better, through research and experiences in various contexts from grassroots to professional club contexts, schools and the importance of family and the home environment.
Researching Science and Human Development, The GPL Philosophy was born through a Collaboration of Coaches Learning in 2013 [Acknowledgments: Mark O'Sullivan Brad Porter, Andre Gumprecht, Matthew O'Neil] and has been brought to life with Joey Peters since 2016 in the Coaching, Teaching and Family contexts.
Underpinning Theories such as Ecological Dynamics and Self-Determination Theory, along with science and research behind Skill Acquisition and Non-Linear Pedagogy, The GPL Philosophy embraces a true Holistic Approach synergising Individual-Task-Environment Learning to provide a foundation of Principles from which our Practices give life to.
The GPL Philosophy can be applied to all Group Contexts, with Joey's passion and experience in the Sporting World, Child Development and Special Needs (we call them 'Superbilities'!) Facilitating
