Just Go Play

Matthew Young and Daryl Devonish

Welcome to Just Go Play! I'm Matt Young, and I'm Daryl Devonish, and we are the founders of Just Go Play. Our mission - to help listeners to create a positive youth sports experience. As life long coaches and lovers of sport, we've seen the appearance of a widening gap in how youth sport training should be approached and how it is actually being executed in the field. The result, a steady decline in youth participation levels. It's time to turn the tide and with this podcast we hope to deliver for you solutions that will help you, your kids and their coaches develop positive sports experiences that change lives. Thanks for tuning in!
