The Power of Positive Coaching

The Power of Positive Coaching | Sports and the Ethics Behind it | Scoop.it
A group called Positive Coaching Alliance is training thousands of coaches and parents to change to culture of youth sports for the better.

 

“But because sports is so valued, we have the opportunity to change the way people relate to their kids through it. Most research indicates that people coach the way they were coached. So you now have kids who are growing up coached with this model and soon they’ll become coaches themselves, so I think the general impact on our society could be huge.”

 

But a bigger problem is that youth sports has come to emulate the win-at-all-costs ethos of professional sports. While youth and professional sports look alike, adults often forget that they are fundamentally different enterprises. Professional sports is an entertainment business. Youth sports is supposed to be about education and human development.

 

What’s needed is a culture change. That’s the goal of the Positive Coaching Alliance, a modest-size organization that punches well above its weight. P.C.A. has trained 450,000 adults, mostly coaches and youth sports leaders, who reach about 4 million children and youths. The organization is working to spread the message that youth sports is about giving young athletes a positive, character-building experience ― not to become major league athletes, but to become “major league people.”

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.

This goes against everything a coach is supposed to be which is a leader of example. Coaches are supposed to teach and groom players, but abusive behavior is unacceptable!

Ethics, Morals, and Values Central in Leadership

Ethics, Morals, and Values Central in Leadership | Sports and the Ethics Behind it | Scoop.it
Leadership experts in the K-12 field Jill Berkowicz and Ann Myers write about challenges and possibilities for administrators in the 21st century.

 

Education is an inherently moral matter. It is moral because people develop (or fail to develop) morally as well as physically, emotionally, and intellectually. It is moral because teaching--helping to shape other people's minds, sensibilities, and capabilities -raises deep questions of purpose, values, and responsibility.

 

It is moral because it involves the relationship between one generation and another, a relationship that helps determine the direction and quality of human life" (p. 152). Therein lies our uppermost responsibility. We must stay in touch with our conscience and allow it to inform our decisions.
