While it is true that becoming a champion could be pressurizing to a younger child, wanting to be the best around at something is something that carries on even outside of sports, into life. We should be expecting kids to want to compete to win, not just to be participating. To be the winner of a sport will give you the mental mindset to be the best at other things later in life, such as being the best at their job, or being the best in school. One way that participation trophies could actually work is if each award was given to the child player with a purpose. The coach stating each players strength on the team as they hand them the award could give a powerful message to the children, showing them that they have control over their success.
Kids these days are very competitive and always want the best advantage they can get. Parents and their children even coaches all agree on letting the kids play at young age so it can't be so effective. The article "Study of former NFL players highlights risks of tackling too young" states that "NFL players who started playing Tackle football before age 12 performed an average of 20 percent worse on a series of cognitive tests than those who started playing tackle football after they have celebrated their 12th birthdays." This shows that Kids can keep starting at a young age and at a risk that might not affect them in the future. Kids will do anything for the extra
Soccer is the most popular sport. It is influential in America, by looking at it; it is mostly effective to children. It is mostly popular for women’s soccer than men and soccer had gained popularity due to the influence of David Beckham. Soccer seems to lack of academies which causes to gain no talent at all. At youth, children love to play soccer, but as they grow old it might be possible chance they might grow out of it.
Simply put, football teaches valuable lessons for life. Although, there are valid safety concerns, these should not keep kids from learning these instructions. Many activities have some sort of harm associated with it, but people will still participate in them anyway because of something that they gain from it. Football has much to offer young boys who will be entering the workforce in the years to come. If the average man possessed character, understood comradery, and exercised commitment; the world would be a better place.
People that say yes see it as motivation to the sport and also makes them feel like they're worth something to the team if they get something in the end. But others that believe if kids know they get something in the end, then they won't even try or “give their best effort”. Some even think the participation trophy is pointless and unnecessary which will make kids think all they have to do is show up to practice and not accomplish anything or put forth the effort toward the sport. If all you do is give kids participation trophies, they'll think everything will get handed to them in their lifetime without any effort. It's basically also a informal sanction just giving all these kids in sporting groups a reward that have no meaning at
Some people say that that people have to be born with natural talents or abilities to succeed, while others think that we have the ability to make ourselves successful with hard work. Who is right? The two authors, David Epstein and Malcolm Gladwell, take two different ideas on this subject.. Malcolm Gladwell, the author of Outliers: The Story of Success explains how he thinks that preparation and hard work is more important than talent. The author of The Sports Gene, David Epstein, he thinks that natural ability is an advantage over practice.Gladwell makes a more convincing argument with more evidence on his ideas then how epstein dose . In The Sports Gene, David Epstein describes how two athletes that there skill in athletics is the result of genes or their biology.
In 2006 Boston Children's Hospital and the leader of sports concussions Doctor William Meehan says "Given the number of kids who play, I would be really surprised if there is an increased risk. He also says "we are talking millions of players who would be suffering from this. I don’t want people to stop playing the sport due to something that is a low, low risk." The low risk of concussions is not the only reason you should let your kids play football. For the love of the game, football is Americas most popular sport.
Players receive a fine that is disproportionate to their exorbitant salaries. While I am certain organizing team sports started out as a way to foster young people to be more responsible members of society, I believe the goal has been lost somewhere along the way. This is unfortunate for parents and children who still seek the purity of what the original organizers intended. In my opinion professional sports has become more about entertainment and marketing than team building, good sportsmanship, and rational problem
In today’s economy, the only opportunity some kids have to attend to college is through football. The earlier they start, the more time they will have to develop their skills, increasing the chances they have of getting a free education. Even though there are alternatives like flag football, some parents argue that it doesn’t give the children the same mentality necessary for “real” football. To be successful, an athlete needs a chip on their shoulder that flag football doesn’t give their children. Understandably, these parents are looking out for their children’s future, but the child’s safety should be prioritized.
