What is this about????

The CDLA is committed to creating the best sports culture in Canada!  Part of creating that culture is embracing a positive environment within which athletes excel.  For our athletes to perform at their best, our parents, coaches, volunteers and officials need to perform at their best.  To help us do that, we are working with a fun company called "What Not To Yell (WNTY) Inc." who is in the business of helping sport organizations create their cultures for higher performance, growth AND enjoyment for all key stakeholders.

In order to do this, we need the assistance of team managers and have setup these sessions to allow the What Not To Yell (WNTY) team to introduce the concepts behind a Spectator Intelligent Culture, and show managers how to train their parents to use the WNTY App.  In doing so, the CDLA will bring our Code of Conduct to 'life' and live by 'TrueSport Principles'!

A bit about the What Not To Yell (WNTY) approach:

  WHAT NOT TO YELL, works with parents, coaches, officials, board executive and staff to ensure they are part of the solution, NOT the problem.

  It's NOT about teaching people how to deal with loud or difficult people.  It's about teaching self awareness and self regulation to create a positive environment and culture for all.

  It starts with each individual by teaching them to be the 'spectator' of themselves first.  This is the concept of being LOUD AND PROUD.

  WHAT NOT TO YELL teaches, trains and reinforces leadership skills and abilities so all stakeholders can lead themselves first, and then lead others.

If you have any questions concerning What Not To Yell, please contact Melanie Wanless at melanie@whatnottoyell.com.

Who needs to attend?

Each team must send a delegate to a session.  We prefer that it be the team manager, but you can send someone in your place if you have to.

If a manager cannot attend, then they should send someone who is either assisting them with game results entry (as we will be covering a little bit of that) or a team contact who whould be in charge of coordinating the What Not To Yell program for the team.  This entails providing clarification on concepts covered at the training to other parents on the team and helping parents use the What Not To Yell App throughout the season.

What should I bring?

Pen, paper, smart phone or tablet, and positive attitude!
