Short Fuses: Do Some Sports Make Kids More Violent? (Infographic)

Short Fuses: Do Some Sports Make Kids More Violent? (Infographic) | Violence in sport | Scoop.it

Are students who play sports more violent? Research done by Xin Jian (a PhD candidate at Ohio State) raises this question. Quoting from the post:

"Her study, published this year in the Journal of Youth Adolescence, did not find "across-the-board advantages"—in other words, lower odds of being involved in violence—for young people who participated in sports-centered extracurriculars."

Youth Radio has reported on this issue (http://www.youthradio.org/news/do-sports-really-prevent-youth-violence) and GOOD partnered with them to create this infographic. The research findings show "contributing factors behind youth violence." A key finding is "contact sports increase the chance of fighting dramatically."
Additional information is available in the post, as well as a link to the the study done by Xin Jian, which was published in the 'Journal of Youth Adolescence.'

Going back to our convorsation about if sports are or are not violent. Worth a read.

Jason Gonsalves's curator insight, November 9, 2014 2:39 PM

I learned that many sports can make high school kids violent. Sports such as American Football, wrestling, and other contact sports are the culprits of violence in young athletes lives. I learned that if you play football, you are 42% more likely to be in a fight than if you played basketball.

 

It is interesting to see how certain contact sports that require intentional violence actually cause unnecessary violence in the lives of young athletes. This could possibly be linked to professional football players situations of domestic violence, for example most recently Ray Rice and Adrian Peterson.

 

I choose to read this article because it is interesting to learn about how sports can make children violent, since they are usually used to try to get kids out of violent situations.

 

This helps me because it will make me cautious of what types of sports to pursue a career in and how to help make them a positive impact on the lives of young athletes, instead of a negative violent one.

Robert wilson's comment, February 9, 2015 7:08 PM
The way sports has changed through violence such as from the codes of state of origin in the 90s where the referees were much more lenient to fights and violence in state of origin to today's rules and referees which are much more harsher on player engaging in physical and violent acts outside the game itself on the field it will be a lot of help for talking about how violence is changing in sports from the perspective of player of the 90s to today's players in how violence in sports changes the game itself

Damian Lenoel's curator insight, February 9, 2015 5:19 AM

I can definitely say that violence has always been a part of human life throughout the ages. It(Sports) has always been about authority, and dominance, that is hardly going to change. Playing contact sports always gets people fired up (Players included) and there is always going to be violence demonstrated through sport. For some people, contact sports can be a stress reliever, letting them take out their anger on other people in a more controlled way than fighting on the streets. I think society needs to stop worrying about violence in sports. Yeah sure it leaves an impression on our growing generation, but shouldn't they(The children of society) be taught by their parents or caregivers what is right, and what is wrong?
