Should a person get paid just for showing up for there a job and not actually doing anything? Should they also get paid the same amount even if another co-worker is better at their job? Just because someone shows up and participates, doesn’t not mean they deserve the same treatment as everyone else. Some parents and athletes believe equal playing time for all sports and activities is deserved all through their middle school and high school careers. However, earning your position, being undeserving of playing time, and coaches trying to win in their respected program are all issues that need to be thought of before people begin fighting for equal playing time. High school coaches should not be required to give equal playing time to all players who make the team.
Amanda Ripley demonstrates the consequences for having school sports in “The Case Against High School Sports” because schools are spending too much money on their sports and can be solved. The author brings to the reader’s eye that sports cost way too much money and should be cut. I think Ripley is wrong because even though it cost a lot of money, they should still keep the sports. If they cut the sports, then it’s not fair to the students that are graduating because they could of had a chance to get a scholarship. If the schools cut the sports, then there is no chance for the students. Along with, when schools have sports it gives students an escape from school. Some schools don’t have a have a rule about if the student is eligible to play
Have you ever worked really hard at something and have been proud of yourself or your team? I know I have. At Foley Schools there is a problem. Our second year high kick dance team, The Falconettes, are not taken seriously by many students and even some coaches. Because of that, many dancers on the team start to get discouraged and can make our athletes feel embarrassed about their sports. That is something that should never happen. The current rules on the subject are that there has to be an equal number of girls and boy sports teams. Another rule states that all coaches should support other coaches and the same rule applies for teams. Foley Schools needs to monitor how coaches and student behave towards the Foley Falconette Dance Team (FFDT).
The “C rule “ would be a huge academic benefit to Webb City High School. The “C rule” is a rule that says any student who participates in an extracurricular activity has to maintain at least a C average in each of their required classes. With the “C rule” being enforced it would motivate students to do better in school and to try harder. Students grades would rise and although some students would not be able to participate in their activities anymore it would still be beneficial for the students who actually care about school .
High school athletes need someone who is concerned about them, not the number of wins and losses throughout the season. Many sports coaches start the season with having the best intentions for the athletes, however, as the season progresses on the goals and motivation can begin to change due to the competitive nature. The important protocols and safety guidelines will sometimes be overlooked if the coach is unaware of signs and desperate for the win. Scott Sailor, the President of the National Athletic Trainer 's Association states, “We look at the big picture and whether what they are doing is going to be in their best interest or create more problems later on. Our job is to bring everyone together with the health of the athlete as the No. 1 priority..." (Sailor). Sailor described how often times when teams make it into play-off and championship play, the coaches will tend to judge the players’
Imagine your best friends making the school soccer team and you getting cut, because your “not ready” or there is “no room”. Trust me been there done that, the most regretted thing about school sports for many are tryouts. Tryouts are the worst thing about sports, they bring nothing but more stress to your plate. It is understandable that everyone can not make the team but it is a terrible thing to cut children by telling them they did not have enough room on the team or are not ready to be on it. Students should not have to tryout for school sports. Some tryouts are not far by any means, in which the coaches pick from not the skill but by the way they know the student. Also it brings down students self esteem. Research shows that 70% of kids drop out of sports for many reasons and not making the team is one. When a
Every year 300,000 students are participating in sports (Gould 1). The School District has been funding the athletics program, which has been benefiting many of the students’ lives for several years. The discontinuation of high school sports will cause many students to loose the health, social and educational benefits provided by participating in athletics. The School District should continue to fund sports because they benefit students.
They must think for themselves for if they let the coaches and teachers do all their college planning who knows where that path might lead them in the end. Throughout the essay Neil H. Petri paint’s the image into his audience head that the teachers and coaches are two of the perpetrators, for they are to blame why student athletes are being abused. The coaches sole concern is for his gladiators to be in tiptop shape for next weeks game they don't care about grades the only thing going through their mind is one word “Winning” and that will never change, while the teachers have the power to stop at any time and assist these student through their college struggles, instead, some are pressured to assist the coaches in landing the big win in next weeks game. So if an assignment or two are not turned in they just look the other way, leaving the students eligible for the game but leaving them with an empty space where the knowledge of that assent could have gone. The only way teachers can fix their wrongs is to stop the abuse today, stop getting persuaded or pressured by fancy dinners and focus on the students
If you have ever been in sports or school athletics, act fast! Schools are getting rid of their sports and we need to stop it. “Being a student is harder than ever. You are being held to tougher academic standards-and so is your school. The stress can get so intense, it feels paralyzing. That’s why it is important than ever for schools to invest in their athletic programs,” states the sports article “Should Schools get rid of Sports.” Schools should keep their sports programs because they help improve academics, help improve mental and emotional health, and improves social skills like being on a team.
Frances is a field hockey player for her school team. One day, she got her report card and saw she got a C+ in Spanish. The next day at practice, her coach told her she was off the team--Even though Frances had been trying her best in Spanish. Frances thought this was unfair and ceased putting effort into Spanish. This is an example of how a child could be negatively by the No Pass, No Play rule. The No Pass, No Play rule requires students to acquire excellent grades to play sports. Children in the same situation as Frances could be discouraged to try in school or even drop out of school.
Do you think it’s fair if a student fails a class and still makes a school sports team other than a student who has all passing grades to not make a sports team? This is completely unfair because if the person who has failing grades is on a sports team, it means they could keep failing and they don't get any punishment.The ¨No Pass, No Play Rule” states that you have to have passing grades to play school sports (¨Project Fact File” 160). Passing grades matter because you need to get a good education and make it on to college and be successful. The writer in the article, ¨How Important Are Good Grades to Career Success,¨ ¨Kids need to focus and do well in school, which will get them into a ´good´ college¨ (1). If you end up choosing school sports in college and you make the team,you will need to be careful of the injuries you could get. Take school seriously because you never know what is going to happen in sports. Students need to have passing grades in order to participate in school sports.
Children have strived for years to make their parents, teachers and coaches proud of them. Kids have come to practice Monday,Tuesday,Wednesday,Thursday, and Friday to get better, while their academics are suffering. Students have pushed their bodies to the limits, causing extreme injury that will hold them back from sports in the future. Student athletes are not getting the opportunity to play multiple sports during the year, because they are expected to spelize in one sport and focus on it year round, leaving no opportunity to play other sports or do other activities. Youth sports are becoming too intense for young children to keep up with.
All athletes should be required to take a drug test. Drugs are prohibited for use to athletes. Playing sports is a privilege. Using drugs is a violation of the athletic program. Students should be tested for all drugs in there system. That's why I think athletes should be required to take a drug test before playing a sport.
The character Jaques in Shakespeare’s As You Like It says “All the world's a stage,/ and all the men and women merely players;/ They have their exits and their entrances, And one man in his time plays many parts...” This universally known phrase continues to ring true in today’s society.
