Therefor, high school coaches should not be required to give equal playing time to all of the players on the team because it is an unfair practice and stunts the growth of the more successful players. To begin with, a coach should not be required to equally split up playing time among the players because it shields the ability level of each individual athlete, making it extremely unfair to the hardest-working, most-talented players. After all, “Coaches don’t decide playing time; players do” (Bowen). Fred Bowen has coached high school sports for over 30 years and has said this to the parents of every player he has ever had before the season starts. By regarding the issue of playing time outwardly and honestly, he has managed to avoid the issue before it turned into a problem.
There are a myriad of reasons that people can argue the opposite way, but, the reasons they should get paid definitely outweigh the reasons they shouldn’t get paid. Although college athletes may be on a scholarship that is paying for their education, they also work countless hours on their craft and make millions for their
It also says that women need to negotiate and speak up when they are not paid fairly. Women do not get paid the same as men because of employers biases. Some biases seem to be that women deserve less than men due to their lack
To this day, there is still some discrimination when it comes to boys and girls playing on the same sports team. So many people, which will generally be adults, have a problem with both boys and girls playing on the same team. We are in the twenty-first century and people are still closing certain sports to certain genders. I have began to notice that it is still frowned upon when boys and girls are on the same team, but my question is why. I believe boys and girls should be able to play on the same team and that it should not be weird when they do a sport uncommon for their gender because people should have the freedom of choice, it doesn’t matter your gender and as long as you're playing the game who cares who's with you.
Athletes must earn the right to wear the jersey and the right to playing time by bringing a strong athletic skill set, by being dedicated to the team, by performing well academically, and by showing good character and sportsmanship. No athlete should ever underestimate how hard another athlete is working to earn that same position on a team, a position no one is simply entitled to have without competing for it or competing to keep it. Wearing a high school jersey, does not entitle an athlete to playing time. Entitlement never wins championships, investment wins
To solve cases like this, parents should stop asking ¨Did you win?¨ But rather ask ¨Did you have fun today?¨ Secondly, If a child is picked to play on a team, coaches should find playing time for them. If not, parents should ask their children if they are unhappy. If they are not enjoying themselves, consider finding them a different team to play on. One where all the players are treated equally. Lastly, kids are afraid of making mistakes because they are growing up in a world that pressures them to be perfect.
That low-class lifestyle they lived and the hard work they did to keep their grades up. College athletes deserved to be paid because under the circumstances they have went through just to get to where they at and be good at it. I have taken a survey with ten future college athletes and they have said if they get paid to play college sports at least thirty percent of there money they earn would go back to their families. College athletes and athletes in general are probably the most are generous and would give it away to a charity. Athletes are very giving people who have given back to their communities.
When players have to earn their spot, teams will reach their maximum potential then. Competitive teams play to win, not please people, so playing time should be determined by ability. Even though playing time is unequal, anybody who proves himself will receive more. For instance, my legion baseball team last summer had a struggling infield. After numerous costly errors from our second baseman, my coach Ryan Snyder brought up a younger athlete who deserved the chance to play and excelled at second base, solving our problems for the rest of the season.
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.
