GPL Event For Your Club

Events delivered at your club (Lake Macquarie area only)
One-off or weekend events across Australia
Your club hosted at the GPL Club in Belmont, NSW

  • For Juniors, Youth, Women’s, Coaches, Parents or Whole of Club initiatives.
  • Ideas for Events: Season Launch Weekend | Coach Development Weekend | Female Football Week | Pre-Season ‘Skills’ Program |’In-house’ Small-Sided Competition | In-Season Player Development Program | End of Season Event | Post Season Multi-Sport Program.

Joey Peters and her team take care of everything from registration and communication with Key Club Contacts, to set-up and providing equipment. We don’t want to add an ‘extra’ workload for members yet involvement from all is welcome.

Joey Articulates The GPL Approach throughout the Event and welcomes input and questions from Club members i.e. Coaches and Parents in relation to:

    • Explaining the carefully designed Games for Age-Appropriate Play and their benefits
    • How to work with kids and/or girls to draw out each individual’s potential and unleash creativity.
    • How to give choice and let players make more decisions in a session.
    • How to nurture intrinsic motivation and a love of the game.
    • How to deal with competition and encourage competitiveness without pressure.
Club members, Coaches and Parents are welcome to join in the Event as a Player and try out Facilitating the GPL Way as well
