8. Continue phrase 7- Posting past pictures of championships will also motivate kids again to want to get another one. They will remember how good it felt the first time and they will want that same feeling again. Also make an internet website and keep it updated with pictures and results of how the team is doing. All of these steps will take time and a lot of effort but it will motivate your kids to give 100% all the time.

9. Model Motivation- Any skill you are willing to teach your coach needs to be the model for his team. The athletes will not be motivated if the coach doesn't push them and stride for them to do their best. Some guidelines for motivating kids is be enthusiastic and always love your kids, remember your trying to help them not only to become a better athlete but also a better person.

10. Continue paraphrase- Always when correcting your players use the sandwich approach which is telling them something positive they did and then explain to them what they did wrong. Also it is important that you talk with everyone and tell them something positive. You influence many people while coaching, take that responsibility seriously (Krob). If you want those athletes to give you maximum effort in return (Krob).

5. Professional athletes play a big impact on teens taking steroids. New stories about professional athletes are coming out everyday about how they are taking steroids. When kids hear this they think its the right thing to do or its the only way you can make it as a professional. This is why its no surprise that as many as 1 in 20 teenagers reports using steroids to increase muscle mass.

8. How to tell if a student is on PEDs? Its really difficult to specify instructions on how to identify if a student is on PEDs. But a tell tale sign often associated with the use of PEDs is behavioral, emotional or psychological changes including aggression. Also it is important for parents to see if there kid has rapid weight gain or muscle growth; increased acne and facial bloating and if your son's breasts are enlarging or your daughter's are getting smaller. This is a sign of PEDs.

9. Other types of PEDs being used in high school? One of the most commonly used drugs used is an anabolic steroid that are synthetic versions of testosterone. This drug can be taken orally, injected or even absorbed through your skin by using some sort of cream or gel. This drug is designed to build muscle and endurance. This drug is dangerous because it has been known to halt growth and damage your heart and liver. 10% of teenagers take this in the U.S.

10. The way forward. Professional sports play a big factor on our American culture. The failure and success of sport stars will always influence our youth. Every time though a athlete is caught doing something bad then the young kids think this is the only way we will make it in the big leagues. Even though PEDs is some what decreasing in high school, with the everything is winning attitudes students will take them if they make there chances of winning at something.

2. One really important over the counter supplement that can be dangerous is creatine. Creatine is known for increasing bursts of high intensity activity such as power lifting, running and wrestling. Side effects of using creatine are stomach pain, nausea, diarrhea and also muscle cramps. If you do take big doses of creatine they can effect your kidney, liver or cause heart problems. It also can cause your blood pressure to rise.

3. How many teens use steroids? Its hard to tell how many teens really use performance-enhancing drugs. The use of anabolic steroids is increasing in high school athletes studies have shown. It has primarily increased among weightlifters and gymnastics. Studies suggest that boys in high school are taking or have tried steroids between 5% to 11% and girls are between .5% to 2.5%.

4. Why exactly do teens take steroids? There are many reasons why teens take steroids. For an example to make them stronger and faster and to increase there play on the field if they play a sport. Most athletes reach a brick wall where they cant get past so they take performance-enhancing drugs to help them get past there problem. Sometimes athletes take them because there sacrifices and efforts don't yield the results they are looking for. They become frustrated which makes them to lead on and think steroids are the way to go.
