I think not. Kids need a reason to try their best, they need a “why.” When you get a trophy and you have put in work every week to get to where you are, a trophy would mean something, it would be important to you. When there is a limited number of trophies and no one is promised one, and you receive one, wouldn’t you cherish it? Everyone should be proud of their prizes and trophies but they could lose their meaning after years of knowing that you are a “winner” because you participated. Some kids may feel like they got a trophy that they did not deserve.
It is crazy to think that a head coach could receive a bonus that much, and it’s also crazy that a head coach makes more money than a University president. I believe student-athletes should deserve some equal form of compensation. Athletes are always the one to throw their bodies into action while coaches are in the sidelines creating formations or plays. If a coach manages to lead their team to national championship and win it, they should at least give some compensation towards the athletes that work their heart out to win the championship. Frank Deford gave a good answer on the one thing he would do to fix college sports, he said, “make them honest by paying the athletes in the "revenue sports," (football and men 's basketball) and not require these paid performers to be students unless they want to.” This would simply solve the issue with giving compensation to student-athletes.
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.
In today’s Modern American Society Track and Field records have changed so much over time being that they have gotten a lot better and people are taking their competitiveness to the next level by stepping up and setting a goal for themselves and each time they reach that goal they make a bigger and better goal and it just continues from there. Becoming an athlete takes time and dedication in what kind of athlete you would like to be. Every sport takes training and the love of the sport. No one is going to want to be in a sport that they don't like and training for a sport that you don't like is pointless because not having the love for the sport is a way of knowing that you are not going to push yourself to your full potential in the sport
“ That if you tell a kid they’re wonderful and they believe you, then it just confirms their belief and that’s not about healthy self-esteem, that 's about narcissism”. Says Ashley Merryman, co-author of “ Top Dog: The Science of Winning and Losing”. A Participation trophy makes a kid more of a narcissist than a team player. They learn that they don 't need to try for a trophy or they are one of the best because they get a trophy every season. Kids can have negative biological impacts too C. Robert Cloninger, a doctor at Washington university in saint Louis used the term “partial-reinforcement extinction effect to describe what kids experience from a participation trophy.
Not having entitlement in sports allows everyone an equal chance of earning a varsity spot. It allows athletes to strive harder for success because then they know coach is looking at everyone, not matter their age or name. An athlete also feels better about himself when coach is watching, which can result in more confidence and a better performance. Head coaches need to look at skill level instead of the name or age when it comes to varsity players because they are out there to win, not please people. If an underclassman is truly better than an upperclassman, then the underclassman should receive the opportunity to play above the upperclassman.
According to (the odyssey online) it states that there might be a performance gene that makes you naturally good at a certain sport like football or soccer. But if you never try to play the sport you would never get better at it so you probably won 't be considered an athlete. CBS states “61 percent of Americans think that athletes are made and the rest think that they are born. Fourteen percent think that they are born and made. It also says when you are younger you are probably going to think that they are made because younger kids usually get told practice makes perfect.
DOPING IN SPORT 2.1 Performance-enhancing drugs have been around for many years. These drugs give competitors that take them an unfair advantage over those who train naturally and don’t use drugs to increase their skills and ability artificially. The spirit of sport is through the pursuit of natural human excellence. All professional athletes belong to sporting associations that have strict rules and regulations regarding the taking of drugs, and are required to be tested and for these reasons, I do not think that drug testing is a violation of a sportsperson’s rights. 2.2 Drug testing at school level is absolutely justified.
The public's perception of Warne changed over the 90's because of his actions and behaviour on and off the field, however, his perfection of the art leg spin saved his career and his on-field reputation. Sport the thing billions either rely on or is just a hobby that's what makes it so significant. Through Adam Scott, Cathy Freeman and Shane Warne they all found sport a way out of a fantasy and into a reality. Both sportsmen and women are role models that the next generation inspires to be. In sport it can bring out the best in people and make players do the impossible, that is what makes sports so
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.
