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.
Your child has just lost his game, showing him that he must improve. But not long after, his coach gives him a trophy, sending him the terribly wrong message that he doesn’t need to improve. Alternatively, someone else’s kid has won, but the trophy that is presented to them has little to no value due to the fact that everyone who’s lost has gotten a trophy anyway. This is the case nowadays as most kids sports programs waste around 12% of their budget on removing everyone’s motivation to improve, and the satisfaction of earning a trophy.
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
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
The lack of support can crush a team. Imagine if you were playing football, and no one came to watch you. Wouldn't you feel as if no one cared? Therefore, because one sport is more popular than the other, due to funding, there is a significant unbalance in
Performing a task is a sport because they're are very heavy risk of performing Some people think cheer is not a sport. They think this because most sports competition to win something, but cheer entertains or supports a group of people. Most cheerleaders say they are because they are scored in performance, but entertaining is not a sport told by ESPN. Remember though cheer is a sport, because parents or guardians have to pay to cheer, and cheerleaders have to be judged. Many people do argue about cheer being a sport.
Sometimes life calls me to sacrifice personal wants for a higher calling. As I watched the B Team receive the first place trophy, I knew in my heart that I was an integral part of the team’s success. I had surpassed my own expectations and helped bring out the best in others. And that’s reward
If that was the case success would be 100 percent on luck but it isn't success is about working hard and getting noticed. Once they are noticed, like gladwell said they are given opportunities that lead to their future
According to “Should Everyone Get a Trophy?” by Lauren Tarshis, a boy named Lucas at the age of 12 has a lot of trophies and has admitted that he didn’t exactly earn these trophies for his athletic skill. Young athletes aren’t going to learn, value, and grow by playing sports the real way, not to earn trophies but to win/have fun and be a good teammate. Kids shouldn’t get trophies for everything because athletes contribute their lives in sports and yet they haven’t gotten trophy. 57% of Americans say only kids who win should get trophies. The other 43% think that it’s not only about winning but being a good teammate.
Owen played years of football and never recorded a concussion but this goes to show they do not need to have a concussion to receive this disease people can get it from the thousands of blows they take while playing the sport. All these scary and real problems can be prevented with reasoning a
Many people never want to be the person putting money into another person’s pocket; paying college athletes is no exception. College athletes are at a college to learn about a specific degree. They are not at college to play sports (Cooper 12). Many of the college athletes aren’t considering their education, they want to play their sports.
My soccer team’s season just ended. We won our game 6-1 and I scored 5 of them. I got handed a trophy, everyone else who really tried got one too . Then, they handed one to Timmy. Timmy showed up to three practices and stinks.
In life kids, students, and adults receive awards also trophies for their success in life. When growing up as a child kids will receive participation trophies. Receiving a participation trophy speaks a lot of volume. When getting a participation trophy this means the kid does not have to improve, kids get trophies like candy, and what can people do to change these situation. Giving kids participation trophies is not all good, sometime when doing the best people may fail in today's world.
Throughout my life people have told me to have a goal; and not just the type I like to score in a soccer game. In life everyone hits a rough patch here and there, but the ones that exceed learn to solve problems. I am involved in sports here at prospect. I played varsity soccer this year and last year. Through my four years of playing, my coaches always told me a quote by hall of fame baseball player Derek Jeter.
