COACHING ETHICS - Remembering what 's important!

COACHING ETHICS - Remembering what 's important! | Sports Ethics: Wagner, C. | Scoop.it
Coaching Ethics - Coach Long covers the importance of correctly prioritizing what is really important when coaching youth sports. Learn to be a role model for your young kids.
Cliff L. Wagner's insight:

When a coach places the athletes above winning, they are more likely to be successful.  This article highlights just that, and places an emphasis on how you, the coach, will be remembered.

Becoming a role model is important for young kids. If you constantly do the right thing and always have the correct attitude towards other players, teams and parents kids pick up on that and it could take them a long way! So always be positive and be a great role model!

I appreciate this article, it describes me and opened my eyes to what is truly important.  Within the article it says as coaches sometime we loose the insight on the true goals.  A win does not make a winner.  It is o.k to win, and o.k to lose.  -GARY M.

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.

Cheating scandal rocks little league championship

Cheating scandal rocks little league championship | Sports Ethics: Wagner, C. | Scoop.it
A cheating scandal is rocking a local little league championship. One
team is accused of throwing a game last Saturday to advance.
Cliff L. Wagner's insight:

While not technically cheating, this coach most certainly did not set an example.  Taking advantage of loopholes in this way is a disgrace and is not the intention of the game.

Baseball: Ole Miss vs. Arkansas 2006--Unbelievable Acting!!

Unbelieveable acting job by Brian Walker during a 06 baseball game between the Razorbacks and the Rebels.
Cliff L. Wagner's insight:

Being an Arkansas Fan, this one hurts a little. It goes to show the lengths people will go in order to gain an unethical advantage.

Take the Little League Baseball Ethics Challenge!

Cliff L. Wagner's insight:

Talk about an ethical dilemma!  What is the right answer?  Is there a right answer?  I would have to say both coaches made a mistake; however, the whole debacle could have been avoided if the coach would have been paying attention to his lineup.

Vicid.com is a sports technology innovator. Our services include turnkey and custom web sites, online registration, and managed hosting.
Cliff L. Wagner's insight:

This is the code of ethics developed by Little League for parents.  Why parents?  Go watch your local league play a few games then you will understand.  It seems a lot of parents forget to bring good behavior to the game.

Umpire ends Little League game after coach’s tirade - Hot Topics

Cliff L. Wagner's insight:

This is not how a coach should respond when an umpire makes a bad call.  After all, bad calls are going to happen so get over it.  If needed, address it with the umpire(s) in a calm, respectful approach.  If you go in with your guns drawn and ready to fire, you are not going to walk away with a victory; rather, you will probably be ejected like this coach.  When dealing with youth sports, it is vital a coach understand his attitude and decisions directly impact the players.  What ethical values do you want to teach?  How do you want to be remembered?
