Coaches: Steps to take in Child Abuse Situations

Dr. John Mayer, vice-president of the Center for Ethical Youth Coaching, outlines what coaches should do when they witness child abuse.
Brien Smith's insight:

This is one of the more difficult aspects to think about as a youth coach but one that should be understood in order to provide the best care for the children you are coaching. All coaches need to understand how to operate in case this scenario becomes a reality.

John Wooden on true success

Brien Smith's insight:

It is important for our youth to understand that not everyone will succeed in the same way and that this is perfectly acceptable. John Wooden teaches that people should accept what they can control and that they should never try to be better than anyone else, but should try to learn from everyone. What should be stressed in youth sports is that children do the best that they can do and that coaches and parents should not push them past what they are capable. The biggest goal of youth sports should be to teach the younger generations through not just words, but actions.

Brandy Sowers's curator insight, April 1, 2014 9:14 PM

John Wooden seems to have infinite knowledge to share with fellow coaches. He explains that the rules he held for his players are also valuable life skills (be on time, keep neat and clean, no profanity). Wooden's point of his talk is that success varies for people. One man's success may be another man's failure, but it's all about self-satisfaction, and knowing that you made the effort to be the best you could be. I think this is great advice for players. But, I think that most players need a coach to tell them that. This day in age, it's all about winning and personal success, rather than team success. I believe coaches need to reiterate self-satisfaction among athletes.

Brian A Corcoran's curator insight, October 15, 2014 12:45 AM

1. I learned from this article that team sports give life lessons to younger kids/athletes and can use these skills later on in life. 

2. What i found interesting was in the Pacific Islands kids from ages 6 to 12 are being involved in work communities for the Oceania Football Confederation and is being extended to other countries and older ages.

3. I selected this article because it caught me eye and i have been playing sports ever since i was little so it reminded me of my youth sport days.

4. This information will help me in the sport management industry because youth sports can attract new ways of enhancing confidence and teaching athletes skills

Coaching is more than just putting on a whistle and directing. Being a leader, a role model, getting examples, teaching discipline, teaching life lessons and among all the correct ethics is sports makes up the value of being a well developed coach.
