Becoming a role model is important for young kids. If you constantly do the right thing and always have the correct attitude towards other players, teams and parents kids pick up on that and it could take them a long way! So always be positive and be a great role model!

Gary M's curator insight, November 3, 2014 3:18 PM

I appreciate this article, it describes me and opened my eyes to what is truly important.  Within the article it says as coaches sometime we loose the insight on the true goals.  A win does not make a winner.  It is o.k to win, and o.k to lose.  -GARY M.

Sara M Hall's curator insight, November 10, 2014 7:57 PM

In his article, Coach Long brings up many good points on how ethics should be in youth sports. In his article he doesn't go to say winning is bad, but the way winning is glorified and taught is wrong. Long also points out how playing a game with no score does not make sense either, playing and teaching youth sports is a way to find a balance between winning, having fun, and teaching young athletes about sports in a healthy way. Allowing students to grow and learn life lessons through sports, and most importantly allowing them to learn to have fun. I really think Long did a fantastic job at helping coaches of young athletes get back to the basic ethics and good morals of what youth sports should be about.

The Power of Positive Coaching

The Power of Positive Coaching | Sports Ethics:  Jaworski, V. | Scoop.it

A group called Positive Coaching Alliance is training thousands of coaches and parents to change to culture of youth sports for the better.

Imagine you're coaching a big soccer game, against an undefeated team that has beaten your team in all your previous matches. Your 11-year-olds are playing well and are ahead. Then, in the closing minutes, the official makes a bad call that goes against you and, because of it, you lose. After the game, the parents of your players scream at the official. The kids are disappointed, looking up at you. What do you do?

Or you're coaching tee-ball and one of your 5-year-old players has failed to get a hit so far. Now, he's up again in a crucial situation and is nervous. All eyes are on him. His first swing misses high. The second misses low and knocks the ball off the tee. You call him over to offer some help. What do you say?

Soccer is one of the most popular gaming activities in Kenya. It is a local leisure activity that can be branded the name staple game, because it is widely appreciated, and almost everyone can play it. However, the local football clubs are in dire need of volunteers to deliver them from the corrupt government officials, who run their country.

While not technically cheating, this coach most certainly did not set an example.  Taking advantage of loopholes in this way is a disgrace and is not the intention of the game.

Players attack opposing high school coach? What is happening with youth sports? | Get Schooled

Players attack opposing high school coach? What is happening with youth sports? | Get Schooled | Sports Ethics:  Jaworski, V. | Scoop.it
This is the second story in a week that makes me wonder what is happening to youth sports.

 

1.The AJC is reporting that Warren County head coach David Daniels was attacked after Friday night’s game against Hancock Central High School. Warren County won the game 21-2. Daniels was allegedly attacked by players from the Hancock team.

 

The Warren County superintendent has asked the GBI to file criminal charges in the attack, which was so severe that Daniels is in the hospital with head injuries and has undergone major reconstructive surgery to his face to deal with crushed bones above and below his eye.

 

2. Last week, police in Carroll County said parents tried to fight 11- and 12-year-old football players. Parents reportedly rushed the field after a call that they didn’t like. The parents yelled obscenities at the children, and one held a child down and tried to remove his helmet so another kid could slug him, according to police. Police issued citations to three coaches for disorderly conduct and obscene language.

Short Fuses: Do Some Sports Make Kids More Violent? (Infographic)

Short Fuses: Do Some Sports Make Kids More Violent? (Infographic) | Sports Ethics:  Jaworski, V. | Scoop.it

Are students who play sports more violent? Research done by Xin Jian (a PhD candidate at Ohio State) raises this question. Quoting from the post:

"Her study, published this year in the Journal of Youth Adolescence, did not find "across-the-board advantages"—in other words, lower odds of being involved in violence—for young people who participated in sports-centered extracurriculars."

Youth Radio has reported on this issue (http://www.youthradio.org/news/do-sports-really-prevent-youth-violence) and GOOD partnered with them to create this infographic. The research findings show "contributing factors behind youth violence." A key finding is "contact sports increase the chance of fighting dramatically."
Additional information is available in the post, as well as a link to the the study done by Xin Jian, which was published in the 'Journal of Youth Adolescence.'

Going back to our convorsation about if sports are or are not violent. Worth a read.

Jason Gonsalves's curator insight, November 9, 2014 2:39 PM

I learned that many sports can make high school kids violent. Sports such as American Football, wrestling, and other contact sports are the culprits of violence in young athletes lives. I learned that if you play football, you are 42% more likely to be in a fight than if you played basketball.

 

It is interesting to see how certain contact sports that require intentional violence actually cause unnecessary violence in the lives of young athletes. This could possibly be linked to professional football players situations of domestic violence, for example most recently Ray Rice and Adrian Peterson.

 

I choose to read this article because it is interesting to learn about how sports can make children violent, since they are usually used to try to get kids out of violent situations.

 

This helps me because it will make me cautious of what types of sports to pursue a career in and how to help make them a positive impact on the lives of young athletes, instead of a negative violent one.

9, including coaches, busted for illegal sports gambling on Florida pro, college and youth football games

9, including coaches, busted for illegal sports gambling on Florida pro, college and youth football games | Sports Ethics:  Jaworski, V. | Scoop.it

Nine people were arrested in an operation into illegal gambling on professional and college sports and youth football games in Broward County, the sheriff’s office said Tuesday.

 

The sheriff’s office said that the 18-month investigation called “Operation Dirty Play,” showed that coaches, team affiliates and the president of the South Florida Youth Football League were regularly betting on games.

 

Two businesses, which served as gambling houses, were searched on Monday, the sheriff’s office said. Authorities said illegal bets were made at Showtime Sports and Apparel at 3685 N.W. 19th Street in Lauderdale Lakes and Red Carpet Kutz Barbershop at 1835 N.W. 38th Avenue in Lauderhill.

 

They were charged with felony bookmaking and some of them were charged with keeping a gambling house, the sheriff's office said...

In the opinion of many, gambling in sports should not be allowed. It takes away from the integrity of the game and the overal reason of enjoyment and love of the game.
