About the Youldon Group

We, at the Youldon Group, build on our experience in sport, business and life to offer services that bring people together around issues that matter, using methods that foster collaboration and learning.

We have a strong practice in Ringette, but we work in many sports. We see the need for the sport system to embrace concepts such as core values, leadership, facilitation, and personal growth.

We help people and organizations reach their desired futures through team building, planning workshops, and coaching services using industry accepted processes and technology.

The Youldon Group will work with you to find out what you need and want. We create processes that are easy to understand, address what matters and respect how you work.
