There is a group called PCA that goes around trying to help coaches of younger athletes try and create a more positive enviroment for them. For what we have talked about in our class this seems to have a good portions of the professonial way to go about coaching for individuals.

We all need ethic re-enforcement training at some point in time.  Even or coaches.

Stephanie Howard's curator insight, May 16, 2015 10:54 PM

I think positive coaching is extremely important, especially for our young athletes. Coaches need to be reminded of the impact they have on their athletes.

As any cricket geek knows, the season is about to start. I’ve been playing, and more specifically, bowling, for about 25 years (the less said about my batting the better) and I have a fairly well grooved bowling action. As any sportsperson will know, there is always room for improvement and this pre-season, I turned to my iPad to help me tweek my bowling technique."

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.

Japan's female Olympic judokas say coaches beat them

Japan's female Olympic judokas say coaches beat them | Coaching Ethics | Scoop.it

Japan’s female Olympic judo athletes were beaten with bamboo swords and slapped by their coaches, officials said Wednesday.

A 15-strong group of judokas complained to the Japanese Olympic Committee (JOC) last month that they had been subjected to physical punishment by the team’s head coach, Ryuji Sonoda.

The group, which included athletes who took part in the London Olympics, says Sonoda routinely abused them, slapping them in the face and hitting them with thick wooden swords, like those used in the Japanese martial art of kendo.

They also complained that some were forced to compete in matches while injured, reports said.

“We have asked the All Japan Judo Federation (AJJF) to investigate the case and improve their methods if the charges are true,” a JOC official said.

AJJF head Koshi Onozawa said the federation had admonished Sonoda and other coaches, who had admitted several of the allegations.

“We received information that Mr Sonoda, the head coach of the female national team, might have been physically bullying athletes,” Onozawa told a news conference in Tokyo.

“Our executive office took this seriously and questioned both him and athletes, discovering the charges were largely true,” Onozawa said.

The AJJF told Sonoda and other coaches that they must change their ways and “will face a harsher punishment if a similar incident happens in the future,” he added.

Kyodo News said Sonoda did not deny the allegations when asked by reporters. “Until now I have been doing things the way I saw fit, but I will fix the things that need fixing,” it quoted him as saying.

A spokesman for the Tokyo Metropolitan Police said: “We are trying to confirm the facts around this issue, including questioning relevant people.”

Japan’s women returned from London with one gold, one silver and one bronze medal in judo, well below their haul from the 2008 Beijing Games.

JOC secretary general Noriyuki Ichihara told reporters the matter was not closed.

Asked if the AJJF’s decision to keep Sonoda as head coach was appropriate, Ichihara said: “We want to see if the trust between athletes and coaches is still there or if there is a way to rebuild that trust,” adding the AJJF has authority to appoint coaches.

The case comes weeks after a Japanese high school student killed himself after repeated physical abuse from his basketball coach, an incident that has provoked national hand-wringing over the way children are disciplined.

Under a law dating from 1947, teachers are not permitted to physically discipline their charges. However, there are no statutory penalties for the minority of teachers who do so.

It is not the first time Japan’s sporting world has been rocked by violence.

In 2007, a trainee sumo wrestler died after a hazing incident revealed a shocking level of punishment for would-be champions.

Referring to Wednesday’s claims, education and sports minister Hakubun Shimomura told reporters a rethink was required.

“It is time for Japan to change the idea that use of violence in sports including physical discipline is a valid way of coaching,” he said.

Tomohiro Noguchi, a specialist in sport at Nihon University, said it was quite surprising that this kind of thing was happening at Olympic level.

“Mainstream ideas have shifted over a generation to advice-based, athlete-centred coaching,” said Noguchi, 46, a former swimmer who said he himself was beaten by his coach as a teenager.

“But there are still some coaches who were physically punished in their youth who apparently still believe in the old method. We may have to look at how coaches are educated in sports science universities to prevent a repeat,
