The Yellow Road System utilises the RISE System (Ruler-Individual-Supporter-Expert), which is a decision-making process analysis system based on defining one's personality, behaviour, and motivation. RISE was first used in the international business sector 18 years ago, and due to years of success (and because of the founders' love and passion for sports), the system was adapted for use in sports.
When choosing the right sporting discipline, nurturing talent, or choosing sports for children and youngsters, it is of paramount importance to get to know the characteristics of the body, support physical development, and preserve one's health. One of the fundamental pillars of the Yellow Road System is composed of the medical assessment and the result-based evaluations written by professionals.
Most people know The Wizard of Oz's slogan: 'It's always best to start at the beginning—and all you do is follow the Yellow Brick Road'. Even though many people along the way try to make Dorothy fail, she must not leave this path if she wants to reach the final destination, the Emerald City.
This reference is commonly used in the business field and is the basis of a lot of motivational and success stories. We also chose this timeless truth to present the system built for children and young athletes with the aim to make them achieve success more easily.
The Yellow Road System evaluates, develops, motivates and energizes based on two fundamental pillars of athletic success. One pillar is the athlete's hereditary characteristics: physiology, physical limits, performance potential, and the management thereof. The other pillar is the individual's psyche, which makes it possible to maximise his or her physical abilities. The Yellow Road System measures these two pillars with the most modern tools available. The unique medical assessment and the in-depth mental analysis work together to provide an exact breakdown of the athlete's potential. It shows the athlete how to mitigate their weaknesses, improve their strengths, utilise their strengths to achieve their goals, and what kind of motivational elements they need to maximise their potential. Moreover, it provides guidelines concerning the circumstances, development programmes, and exact training plans the athlete needs. The System also helps parents choose the best sports for their children. For team sports, it measures the harmony among the individuals and the possibilities of creating it. It evaluates the trainer-competitor, trainer-parent, athlete-parent, and teammate relationships. It concentrates on upcoming generations, building the sporting career of an athlete, including reaching the peak; hence, it focuses on nurturing young talent. In the case of children and young athletes, the family can be the helping environment which gives them the best base and the biggest support. Therefore, from 2019, the Yellow Road System broadened its services with a unique family analysis, the main objective of which is to help the life of the athlete and that of its immediate environment/relations.
In summary, the Yellow Road System is a framework for applying black and white, sincere assessments of an athlete's present and future capabilities, while also showing the exact path to achieve their full potential.
Don't forget, "It's always best to start at the beginning – and all you do is follow the Yellow Brick Road".
