The Power of Positive Coaching

The Power of Positive Coaching | Sports Ethics: Herndon, C | Scoop.it
A group called Positive Coaching Alliance is training thousands of coaches and parents to change to culture of youth sports for the better.

 

“But because sports is so valued, we have the opportunity to change the way people relate to their kids through it. Most research indicates that people coach the way they were coached. So you now have kids who are growing up coached with this model and soon they’ll become coaches themselves, so I think the general impact on our society could be huge.”

 

But a bigger problem is that youth sports has come to emulate the win-at-all-costs ethos of professional sports. While youth and professional sports look alike, adults often forget that they are fundamentally different enterprises. Professional sports is an entertainment business. Youth sports is supposed to be about education and human development.

 

What’s needed is a culture change. That’s the goal of the Positive Coaching Alliance, a modest-size organization that punches well above its weight. P.C.A. has trained 450,000 adults, mostly coaches and youth sports leaders, who reach about 4 million children and youths. The organization is working to spread the message that youth sports is about giving young athletes a positive, character-building experience ― not to become major league athletes, but to become “major league people.”

There is a group called PCA that goes around trying to help coaches of younger athletes try and create a more positive enviroment for them. For what we have talked about in our class this seems to have a good portions of the professonial way to go about coaching for individuals.

We all need ethic re-enforcement training at some point in time.  Even or coaches.

Stephanie Howard's curator insight, May 16, 2015 10:54 PM

I think positive coaching is extremely important, especially for our young athletes. Coaches need to be reminded of the impact they have on their athletes.

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

Adam Odell's curator insight, July 20, 2014 3:12 PM

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.

The line between discipline and hazing is thin. The key in who's looking and evaluating.
