This article talks about the sportsman model of sports saying that all players should follow the 4 basic rules of ethics, Fairness, Integrity, Responsibility, and Respect. It says "The sportsmanship model is built on the idea that sport both demonstrates and encourages character development, which then influences the moral character of the broader community." This is true because every sport has rules pushed and sometimes not noticed. It gave some good insight to how a player should play a sport.

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.

This is an introduction of Notre Dame taking the right steps by trying to instill ethical sport values into children at a young age. Kudos to Notre Dame.

Point of the Game: Sports Ethics: Keep Your Edge

Point of the Game: Sports Ethics: Keep Your Edge | Sports Ethics: Decker, T. | Scoop.it
Sports Ethics: Keep Your Edge. “I lost my edge.” Athletes and professionals mutter this when they struggle with their skills and when they begin to feel their skills eroding or when they feel competitors starting to surpass them.

Great look at athletes struggling with the fact that they cant always be the best and how coaches have got them through those struggles.

If someone feels like they're losing their ethical edge, it then comes time to metaphorically step back and reevaluate.

This is a prime example of what kids today emulate. If the parents are doing it, then why is it not for the children?

Coaching ethics not only comes from the coach but also comes from the first coach an individual has that is their parents. Parents should also be within the guidelines of Ethics and morals in sports and in life.

David Foster's curator insight, April 27, 2015 8:01 AM

A great article of how not act as a coach, parent, or player. It is up to the management to ensure that all ethical behavior is being followed and kept honorable.
