Ever meet a youth sports coach with some ethics challenges?

michelle shakir's curator insight, July 17, 2016 10:10 PM

This article speaks about the importance of being ethical whether you are a coach, player, and/or parent.  Coaches and parents has a responsibility to set the tone when it comes to teaching ethics in sports.

I hope more athletes will be encouraged to take a stand against unethical behavior be it from a staff member or teammate.

Wendy R's curator insight, April 18, 2014 8:42 PM

"Laughable?" a bit derogatory isn't it?  How about something along the lines of, "We are unclear as to where these allegations came from, we don't coach in the manner he described, but we are eager to get to the bottom of this as fast and as civilized as possible." 

Josh Laker's curator insight, May 11, 2014 12:14 PM

Over the past few years the media has reported on coaches abusing players.  This article brings to light allegations of abuse at Washington State University.

This is a major reason I feel that ethics has went down hill due to the importance of making more money. 

Richardson, A. 's curator insight, November 16, 2014 9:06 PM

Money and epic salary and endorsement deals certainly has not enhanced and increased ethics in sports.  With millions of dollars to be earned or lost due to wins, contracts and endorsement money, athletes are playing for much more than the love of the game.  In the words of Jerry Maguire, "show me the money."

Mike Falvo's curator insight, January 19, 2015 4:29 AM

I don't think it has COMPLETELY ruined ethics in sports, but it is definitely a driving force in the decisions made on and off the "field" of sport.

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 | Responsibility to Young Athletes as a Coach | 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.
