Coaching is teaching and as coaches our goal is to impart self-assurance, motivation and rational strength in our athletes (quote book). At Clear Choice Coaching we concentrate on coaching soccer, basketball, tennis and football, we want to be able to provide all of our clients we encounter the ability to thrive. We have followed many elite programs throughout the United States and we found a common theme and it was no matter the sport, coaches use trial and error until they find trial and success ( quote book). This experimental stage coach’s use is what we call the intellectual part of coaching our sports. We see the need for our coaches to have an understanding of the significance of leadership and being able to instruct our athletes to becoming effective performers and dealing with them individually, helping each one to develop and maintain a winning mentality.
If there is one thing in life that soccer had taught me was nothing in life is fair. Nothing in the “real world” will be handed to you (unless you are GM and like to cheat your way around things). If you want win against a team, you to have go out there and work for that win. The coaches cannot go out there and
Are High School Sports Dying? It’s the Friday night lights, the thrill of running out of the tunnel, the loud warm up music, the crowd yelling to support you, that every high school athlete looks forward to. Winning the rival game, going head to head against friends from other schools, creating memories that will last a lifetime, those crazy bus rides and the long ones home after a tough lost. You play because you love the game but others play for the social aspect. Lately, it hasn't been about the players so much anymore it's been about your last name, who your parents are and how much money your parents are willing to donate to the program in order for you to get that starting position or more playing time.
“Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire, the power to unite people that little else has... It is more powerful than government in breaking down racial barriers” (Nelson Mandela). Everyone remembers at some point in their life playing a sport, whether it be in school or to pass the time or on an actual sports team. Even in the case of people who have never played a sport, have at least seen a sport being played.
Respect, respect, respect for your coaches, for your fellow team mates and for your opponent. You lead by example, you can’t ask for respect if you don’t give it. My family has always been hard on me about giving respect, no matter who it is to. Without the right amount of respect given, not much can be done. I have been a witness to it every year, a mister know it all thinks he is smart than the coaches and likes to run his mouth showing no respect and effortlessly paying attention.
I have witnessed it firsthand. As being a member of a team I could see the tension building up whenever it was the time for a match with the opponent team. The smile and pleasure seem to vanish in the field when faced with a serious match. The pressure of winning makes the children fight with one another and even the parents start to act immature over some petty issue. The core values of sports have been entirely lost ever since the idea of winning has taken over our generation.
In any sport there needs to be a leader. Every team needs someone that the players can believe in to lend them to victory. Sports can be very similar to war. In order to win in war, troops need a good captain who has the right battle plan, and in order to win in sports, players need a good coach who has the right game plan.
This skill may prove itself to be useful later in life if these athletes are involved in the workforce. This is because while you have a job, any person who has authority over you will set goals for you, and if you do not complete these goals you will be seen as a failure. Also, these coaches are training your kids to be hard workers later in life by pushing them to the best of their abilities and treating them with extreme discipline. Without that lesson being taught, your student may never know just how important it is to put the maximum amount of effort you can while trying to accomplish any goal. Another vital lesson that can be learned from playing sports is how to overcome diversity.
Assignment #1 “The Sanctity of Sunday Football: Why Men Love Sports?” Douglas Hartmann 1) With children and teenagers, what purpose do sports play? • One of the main incentives for children and teenagers to play sports, is so they can connect and socialize with one another. 2) What are some of the upsides and downsides to youth sports?
In the athletic world, there are many different types of coaches. There are the coaches who think they know everything, the coaches who know what they are doing but do not care, and the coaches that actually care and want to succeed. First, the coaches that think they know what they are doing. These types of coaches act like they know the game, but they really do not.
Although individuals may know what they define as desirable/positive social behavior/skills and as undesirable/ negative social behavior/skills. Due to the different positions these individuals represent, they also represent diverse perspectives. The purpose of this dissertation therefore, is to explore what coaches and PE teachers do and think they need to do to address social aspects of sport/PE. My focus is on the ideas coaches and PE teachers have about the importance of social skills/behaviors and the development of these in youth sport and PE and how these adults implicitly and explicitly address this social development. Since there is little agreement about the social skills/ behaviors that should be, and are taught in sport and PE, I will explore various perspectives of those involved in youth sport.
Competitive sports provide a community which kids can work with and beat other teams with. “Playing a sport helps children develop social skills which would benefit them even when they grow older. Playing sports teaches them about teamwork and cooperating with others. They learn to interact with people from different ages” (Mahaseth). When these kids grow up, they can use these skills to be able to cooperate and talk with their colleagues.
