The International Association of Coaches is dedicated to evolving the coaching profession through rigorous testing and certification, and the highest ethical standards, thereby representing the best interests of the clients of coaches.
Along with being a great coach comes many ethical standards that a coach must adhere too. Many of them are common sense, but some are not so much on the surface. Following and abiding by standards can be hard on a coach. Although when followed the job the coach does would be much easier and without so much drama.
The use of steroids is quiet popular. Especially in the program that are not being tested for the use of steroids. Most high schools do not test for steroid use and most junior colleges do not. Although this video shows that there is a clear addiction to the drug and negative effects that come along as a result of using the drugs. Even if it is not caught now years down the road it can come back to harm one.
The practice of coaches disciplining their teams by making them run is as old as sport itself. Now, the time-honored punishment is under attack after some say coaches in an Iowa school district went too far.
This is a form of punishment that happens quiet often. Many times because it is a quick solution at the moment to the problem. Although, it accomplishes nothing. I know of softball pitchers that had to run if they walked the first batter and on their performance of pitching. What did this accomplish? Nothing, but putting pressure on a pitcher to perform and many times this had a negative effect.
Athletes are influenced very easily by their coaches. There is a thing line that a coach must not cross when working with individuals especially with athletes of the opposite sex. Texting individuals has become a code of ethics concern when texting involves just one individual. I feel that group text that involve practice or games concerns should be fine.
Sports Ethics: Get Your Act Together. A couple months ago I read a story where Maria Sharapova at the U.S. Open (please don't ask why I follow stories about Maria Sharapova). She had fallen behind in a match and during a ...
Seems to be a positive way to influence a player during a game. Then once the game is over be more specific about what needs to be fixed. Get your act together can be a coaches way of focusing an athlete without adding stress to an already stressful situation during a game.
Most interesting article on ethics in sports. The difference between gamenship and sportsmanship was addressed. Gamenship is winning at all cost no matter what. Sportsmanship is healthy competition. It seems as though the sporting activities today have evolved more into gamenship rather than good clean fun which is sportmanship.
Interesting enough that this occured over 10 and 11 year old sports. It is just eye opening that a coaches pressure is so intense that they feel they must lower themselves to this level in order to win a game. This happens in many cases involving sports. Coaches have a lot riding on if they have a winning season. Sports have turned from fun to WIN.
How many career options can provide the excitement, challenges and satisfaction of coaching? Coaches at all levels experience the pleasure of watching young people develop sport skills and contribute to successful teams. However, coaches also have important legal and ethical obligations to their schools and their athletes. Many of these obligations or responsibilities are natural extensions of the mission and goals of the high school athletic program. Others are defined legally or are expectations of society for a “teacher” in a school activity.
Coaches must adhere to legal and ethical responsibilities within the profession. These responsibilities are outlined through certification classes. All coaches must keep athletes safe both physically and emotionally and these standard that they must follow are outlined in the National Association for Sport Physical Education. A coach needs to be a role model for athletes under his or her care.
