Possibly the shortest of our programs in length, though most significant in importance. Relationships are the foundations for success. No one is an island. We all relate to, communicate & interact with, another human being. The natural, instinctive desire to partner up with another is also a basic element of our existence. If these are sound and successful, life becomes easier,; when they are the opposite, life becomes unbearable. All aspects of your life are governed, to a large degree, by the success or otherwise of your relationships.



thingAreas covered:



·          What is a relationship?

·          Types of relationships.

·          The essence of a successful relationship.

·          The consequences of a poor relationship.

·          Things that interfere with relationships (covering drugs, alcohol, self esteem etc.).

·          Coping skills.

·          What to do when everything seems to be going wrong.

·          Counselling & other options to revive, rescue, restore and maintain your relationships or how to end a relationship, if that is necessary.



thingProgram Length:



  • Generally runs for one (1) hour. All are encouraged to attend, including Coaches, CEOs, Club Administrators, counsellors and, if necessary, family. Significant time is spent interacting with each other & the facilitator, due to the very nature of the program. 



thingHow the sessions are run & what you can expect:



  • Coaches, CEOs, Trainers/Conditioners and family can contribute with their input regarding relationships within the League environment, though the barriers between player & 'administrator', child & parent, must be put aside. 
  • Minimal audio visual presentation given 
  • Workbook, pamphlets & brochures, informational & educational material also provided.
