Justin Hilliard's insight:

This gives a good overview of the evolution of sports.  How many factors can lead up to the diminished ethics surrounding the sports that so many of us love.  Personally I think the media sensationalizes a lot of unethical behavior and the youth think that it is acceptable since those players are their role models.  I get tired of watching ESPN and seeing "tweets" from players popping up on the screen.  I don't own a Twitter account and think it is unnecessary for people to broadcast every second of their lives or their opinions every 15 seconds and that people actually cling to their every word is disgusting to me.

Youth Sports: Code of Ethics for Coaches and Parents

Youth Sports: Code of Ethics for Coaches and Parents | Ethics in Football | Scoop.it
Justin Hilliard's insight:

With the decrease of ethics in sports.  More and more leagues have become more insistent on having their coaches, players, and parents sign an ethics agreement that can range in penalty from being removed from a game and suspended for the next one to having all playing rights within that league removed for the foreseeable future.

As a former football, i think its really important for us to have a Code of ethics because the game might become unnecessary rough and degenerate into a violent confrontation that will eventually leads to injury. Its good that the coaches and the parent are as well following a code of ethics because everything they do will have repercussion on the field.

David Foster's curator insight, April 27, 2015 8:06 AM

A great code for managers, coaches, and parents to not only live by but to teach as well.

Competition is not unethical. It is reasonable that winners be rewarded, even if their victories have an element of chance; this is the essence of a game, and games are fundamental to humanity. But it can drive some competitors to unethical behaviour
Justin Hilliard's insight:

Ethics is not only an issue in America, but it is something that has started to take over globally.  The parents wanting their children to succeed where they haven't.  The country that wants to win more gold medals at the Olympics that bends the rules or searches for loop holes.

Justin Hilliard's insight:

USA football has garnered national attention as it it the organization tasked by the NFL to train youth coaches in the proper techniques and ethics to be able to be a successful coach and to be a mentor to youth players within your organization.  To many coaches think that they can do things their own way and teach methods that were allowed over 30 years ago and that leads to more injuries to the youth players of today.

The coaches are them main reason why a football team will have a good sportsmanship or if they are going to be the bum of their league. I have already experience a football team that did not know whats sportsmanship was all about and it almost end up to be a general fight.

Justin Hilliard's insight:

As a youth coach I have continuously seen an increase in the amount of failures as coaches and parents as a result of the "win at all costs" mentality.
