Jermaine Hall's curator insight, November 6, 2013 7:05 PM

This is so true on so many different levels. We have to ensure we maintain a proffessional relationship with students and clients at all times.

Jason Cain's curator insight, March 16, 2014 12:46 PM

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. 

Adam Odell's curator insight, July 20, 2014 3:10 PM

Coaches should maintain a professional level with all individuals of the team.

Performance enhancement: Superhuman athletes

Performance enhancement: Superhuman athletes | Coaching and Sports Ethics: Bill Rice | Scoop.it
Enhancements such as doping are illegal in sport — but if all restrictions were lifted, science could push human performance to new extremes.
Willam Rice's insight:

Great article addressing the topic of PED's. I think many overreact when discussing this topic. Why is the use of PED's considered evil? If adults are able to make choices about other substances they put in their bodies, why are these considered almost evil? If used under medical supervision, why not consider  it?

what constitutes cheating?  what are your ethical morals and values when enhancing performance?  how far do you go to succeed without encountering ethical issues?

Matthew John Butcher's curator insight, May 18, 2014 9:44 PM

This is a truly interesting article because it draws a theoretical line being ethical and non-ethical views on performance-enchancing methods.  It includes examples of what is acceptable and what isn't.
