Joshua Evans's insight:

coaching is a very important job and coaches need to remember to focus on more than winning and losing, but focus on developing an athlete. A coach is a teacher first.

In his article, Coach Long brings up many good points on how ethics should be in youth sports. In his article he doesn't go to say winning is bad, but the way winning is glorified and taught is wrong. Long also points out how playing a game with no score does not make sense either, playing and teaching youth sports is a way to find a balance between winning, having fun, and teaching young athletes about sports in a healthy way. Allowing students to grow and learn life lessons through sports, and most importantly allowing them to learn to have fun. I really think Long did a fantastic job at helping coaches of young athletes get back to the basic ethics and good morals of what youth sports should be about.

This is a great article - as coaches we need to remember that we are role models and there are so many more important things that just winning. 

Christopher Baldwin's curator insight, June 12, 2015 11:53 AM

The following article explains the importance of understanding ethics in youth sports. This article also explains trends among youth sports today such as "winning at all costs" and the importance of sportsmanship.

Joshua Evans's insight:

I have a problem with college coaches making this much money. This is not professional athletics, and to pay these coaches this much money is ridiculous. This money needs to be invested in much better avenues like scholarships and grants to the individuals who wish to go to college, but can't afford it. To pay a college coach this much money is ridiculous.

Victoria Molnar's curator insight, March 13, 2014 4:08 PM

This article has some good points about how the game and sports industry has turned into money. I feel this author is just venting about how they are using money and turning players into money hungry athletes. However, it is true some players will not even sign with a team over a couple of million dollars. This is crazy, many people would give their left arm for just one million dollars and here they are complaining that they are not paid enough. It should be about playing the sport because they love it and want to be a good role model not just to make millions and move on with life.

Lisa Kirk's curator insight, May 15, 2015 12:10 AM

I really enjoyed reading this article regarding ethics in athletes. Players are acting like children when they are supposed to be role models and professional leaders in an organization.  This article encompasses several situations where it involves baseball players spitting on each other, football owners building the biggest stadiums and players robbing banks. Where are their ethics and morals for the future athletes to emulate?  


My sister's friend met their classmate, who was a professional baseball player, at a professional baseball game.  After the game, there was a meet and greet for the fans.  His friends screamed out his name and he  ignored them as he continued to sign on the merchandise and walked away.  They never had a chance to talk to him and he never gave them the time or day.  Some may say, maybe he didn't remember them? When you start screaming out your High School team and friend's names, you never forget.

Joshua Evans's insight:

I think this is a great idea for student athletes to prevent injury and improve on athletics. However, I think at the high school level they are pushing too hard. These are still young kids who need to focus more attention on academics, but sports and athletics are consuming children. I think this is a dangerous slope and needs to be monitored very closely.

Joshua Evans's insight:

This article is a great begining to building a strong ethical program in any sport organization. The ethical code that all others follow comes from the top leadership. If these leaders are not great leaders then the code of ethics that they form and pass down the line are not going to be of strong character. Every successful organization or team begins with a strong leader.
