Unethical behavior for sure.

matthew hartley's curator insight, August 18, 2013 3:29 PM

This is a great example of a horrible coach and person with no professional ethics.

Manuel Barnett's curator insight, May 18, 2014 10:45 PM

Professionalism at all times as a coach is must. Parents are trusting you with their children be them boys or girls, and they expect nothing but the utmost professionalism at all times. This is a prime example of where ethics on both the personal and professional level failed.

All coaches should be aware of how to safeguard themselves from situations that might put them at risk of unwarranted accusations. Good article

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.

This is a form of punishment that happens quiet often. Many times because it is a quick solution at the moment to the problem. Although, it accomplishes nothing. I know of softball pitchers that had to run if they walked the first batter and on their performance of pitching. What did this accomplish? Nothing, but putting pressure on a pitcher to perform and many times this had a negative effect.

Manuel Barnett's curator insight, May 18, 2014 10:49 PM

The punishment should fit the crime, if there really was one, this is were personal ethics, due to being the head coach of the varsity team and the low morals surrounding it,  get in the way of being professional. This can ruin a coach if they don't keep their heads on strait and keep a cool head at the same time.

Interesting enough that this occured over 10 and 11 year old sports. It is just eye opening that a coaches pressure is so intense that they feel they must lower themselves to this level in order to win a game. This happens in many cases involving sports. Coaches have a lot riding on if they have a winning season. Sports have turned from fun to WIN.

This is a prime example of what kids today emulate. If the parents are doing it, then why is it not for the children?

Adam Odell's curator insight, July 20, 2014 3:12 PM

Coaching ethics not only comes from the coach but also comes from the first coach an individual has that is their parents. Parents should also be within the guidelines of Ethics and morals in sports and in life.

David Foster's curator insight, April 27, 2015 8:01 AM

A great article of how not act as a coach, parent, or player. It is up to the management to ensure that all ethical behavior is being followed and kept honorable.
