What’s involved in coaching kids’ sport? What effort is needed and what is the payoff?

In this episode, we chat with two parents who have risen to the challenge to make sure kids’ sport happens in their school for their kids. We talk with comedian, Marc Ryan, and consultant, Nardia Symonds.

The SA Drink Of The Week is from Big Shed Brewing Concern

And in the musical pilgrimage we have a track from Emma Knights.
