I don't think it would be hyperbolic to describe Ted Kroeten as a pioneer. His approach to player development is one of the purest examples of adopting an ecological, child centred approach to how young people experience sport I have ever heard.

The programme is called 'Joy of the people' www.joyofthepeople.org and it provides over 1500 hours of free play opportunities for children per week at no cost.

In this episode we discuss...

- How the concept came about and the journey to establishing JOTP from idea to reality
- The challenges that have been faced in establishing a model like this
- The principles behind the approach and the way that the coaches facilitate learning
- The successes that they have seen and the way that the children are developing

It is a genuinely fascinating and inspiring story that I know you will learn a lot from.

Hope you enjoy
