Gareth Burns's curator insight, June 9, 2013 3:45 AM

This article refers the overuse of children in club sporting.  This can easily translate to a career field as a trainer.  Pushing people beyond their limits or thinking the idea of "no pain, no gain" is something that can potentially cause injuries that work against the progress of an athlete.

Brian Candage's curator insight, May 16, 2014 8:48 PM

This article really hits the Personal Ethics point. Why on earth would a coach let his team go up by that much. After your team goes up by 30 or more points you should be able to tell the other team isn't really going to put up a fight. That's when you sit your starters, or start running small gain plays instead of the big Hail Mary plays.
