Good Youth Sports Coaches Teach, Model and Demand Sportsmanship, Fairness and Respectful Behavior

Good Youth Sports Coaches Teach, Model and Demand Sportsmanship, Fairness and Respectful Behavior | Ethics in Youth Sports | Scoop.it
Good youth sports coaches teach, model, and demand respectful behavior, fairness and sportsmanship by athletes.

 

As a society we would not find it acceptable if teachers encouraged their students to cheat on tests. Youth sports should be no different. Existing programs to teach athletes moral ethics and to help coaches to teach moral ethics should be expanded and instituted in every community to teach decision-making, sportsmanship, competitive integrity, inspiring through leadership, justice and competitive responsibility.

Good coaches are alert to the possibility of bullying and proactively seek ways to reduce it. Similarly, a good coach teaches and models respect for the opposing team and game officials.

 

Coaches should be able to accept bad calls by umpires, refs and other sports officials (remember, most of them are volunteers, too)and mistakes by players without a public display of emotion or of dissatisfaction

This makes me grateful for the outstanding coaches I have known. To all coaches, from up-and-coming aspirants to seasoned veterans, may this serve as a guideline for how you lead your youngsters.

I think it's true that money has spoiled sports. It seems that the more money a sport gains, the more the players stray from the core values and more likely they are to cheat and use drugs. It's becoming more and more about the money instead of playing for the love of a sport and this upsets me. it shouldn't be about the money at all.
Tyler Owen's comment, March 12, 2014 4:03 AM
I believe that you play the sport for the love of it and if you get paid doing it its just a bonus, and once the players start earning more and more they get greedy and then cheating comes into play. Money is ruining sport when it should be making it better
Brendan larsen's comment, February 8, 2015 10:28 PM
I think that money has had an impact on ethics in sport because players are leaving behind the love of a club for the money that other big clubs have. This is making certain teams almost impossible to compete against just because the clubs owner is extremely wealthy. Players are now more greedy than ever, going after clubs that might not necessarily benefit them but have the most money. Also the fact that they're not worried about the fines they receive for on and off field wrongs because they have so much money so they've not receiving much of a punishment.

Ethical dilemmas confront athletes, coaches, fans and others around the games every year, forcing people involved in sports to examine their behavior and conditions and reevaluate the morals and ethics that are most important to them. Sports topics related to ethics begin in youth sports and carry well into professional sports.

With the decrease of ethics in sports.  More and more leagues have become more insistent on having their coaches, players, and parents sign an ethics agreement that can range in penalty from being removed from a game and suspended for the next one to having all playing rights within that league removed for the foreseeable future.

Marc-Olivier Dumont's curator insight, August 22, 2014 10:09 AM

As a former football, i think its really important for us to have a Code of ethics because the game might become unnecessary rough and degenerate into a violent confrontation that will eventually leads to injury. Its good that the coaches and the parent are as well following a code of ethics because everything they do will have repercussion on the field.

David Foster's curator insight, April 27, 2015 8:06 AM

A great code for managers, coaches, and parents to not only live by but to teach as well.
