Can anyone get dirtier than this?

Can anyone get dirtier than this? | Athletic Coaching: Salazar E. | Scoop.it

We all remember this. NATAL, Brazil (AP) -- Uruguay striker Luis Suarez could once again be in trouble and facing a long ban after appearing to bite an Italian opponent Tuesday in a key World Cup group game. The incident, visible on television replays, showed Suarez apparently bite the shoulder of

Edwin Salazar's insight:
Edwin Salazar's insight: This is a reflection of a coach that can't control his players, and a player that will do anything to win, even if it means to hurt someone. The most ruthless soccer players many times use their hands or elbows to get under an opposing player's skin. The most dirtiest might use their cleats. And then we have Luis Suárez, I don't think we have a category for him.

A GOOD COACH – OR A BAD COACH?

A GOOD COACH – OR A BAD COACH? | Athletic Coaching: Salazar E. | Scoop.it

Good Coach – Bad Coach: There is absolutely no question that an athlete's experience within their sport is almost completely colored by the type of coach she/he is lucky or unlucky enough to draw. A good coach will teach an athlete to love the sport, he will inspire that athlete to dream big and take risks in pursuit of their goals. He will motivate the athlete to work hard, push through pain and fatigue A bad coach, on the other hand will teach very different lessons. Through his treatment of his players and interactions with those around him/her, he/she will turn his athletes off to the sport. He/she will gradually kill the athlete's love and enjoyment of the game. 

Edwin Salazar's insight:
Edwin Salazar's insight: Being a good coach takes time, care and devotion, on the other hand, being a bad coach does not take much effort at all, the sad thing is that most bad coaches do not see it that way, they think the harder they are, the better the team will do, but little they know that they are killing their spirit and the sport. If you have a kid and they have a bad coach, please protect them.

College Vs. Pro Basketball Should Athletes Leave School Early? What is too Early?

College Vs. Pro Basketball Should Athletes Leave School Early? What is too Early? | Athletic Coaching: Salazar E. | Scoop.it

We see it every year.  Kids that are still in college must choose between the risk of going professional in their sport, or risking injury for another year of college basketball.

Athletes have been successful through both of these decisions; however, some athletes have been left behind that chose the wrong path to professionalism.

Edwin Salazar's insight:
Edwin Salazar's insight: There is little thought that there are many points to both sides of this argument and also both have their strong points and opinions; but I believe that the ultimate decision is yours to what you think and want you want out of life, sure, you might make a mistake, but isn't that what life is all about, we learn from them, i also believe that if anyone is over 18 years of age, they have the right to do what they choose and want.

The Ugly Side of Working out, Starting with CrossFit

The Ugly Side of Working out, Starting with CrossFit | Athletic Coaching: Salazar E. | Scoop.it

One of the problems that many people have against CrossFit is that many CrossFitters come across as arrogant to outsiders, perhaps is their attitude, or they think, they are better than everyone else?

http://www.wadehodges.com/the-ugly-side-of-crossfit/

Edwin Salazar's insight:
Edwin Salazar's insight: CrossFit arrogance is ironic, because most CrossFitter do not have a clue what exactly what cross fit is, or even that existed four years ago. I do agree that is has been developing it into the world’s greatest fitness program.   The problem is that people just follow what they see. Think about this, after you do a hard cross fit workout and you eat like there’s no tomorrow, that’s your body saying, “You’re killing me with this crap!” I say, work hard, eat healthy and encourage people that might not have what it takes to work hard, but they're willing.

The Good Side of Sports and what it does, when it is done right!!

The Good Side of Sports and what it does, when it is done right!! | Athletic Coaching: Salazar E. | Scoop.it

From time to time, there's a “feel-good” story that catches our attention and rekindles our spirit like “The Blind Side.”  Stories of children that made it from deprivation to stardom make us all feel nice and gooey on the inside. Every year around the time of the NFL draft, we hear stories about kids that came from crime-infested neighborhoods and made it to their dreams.

Edwin Salazar's insight: We do need to keep in mind that not all athletes or coaches are engage in transgressions, there are more good coaches and athletes that we give credit to. we have to understand that sports, can be good for our children as they learn long life learning lessons.
