Society Today

“We live in a society that is win at all cost. Our society has desensitized our values and it carries over to sport. We need to make improvements and hopefully, the next generation will be better than we are.”

- Grant Hill

Promoting Change
  • I am just one, but still I am one. I realize that I can not change everything, but I refuse to quit trying to change those things that I can.

Promoting Change
  • One coach, one parent, one student, one administrator can lead the positive change in the face of high school sports.

What is the Primary Mission of Your Institution and What Role Does a Sports Program Play in Advancing That Mission?

mission of your institution
Mission of Your Institution
  • To help young people become personally successful and socially responsible.
  • Sports and activities are an extension of the classroom. Do your actions on the field of play demonstrate your school’s mission?

  • On May 25, 1999 nearly 50 influential leaders in sports issued the Arizona Sports Summit Accord to encourage greater emphasis on the ethical and character building aspects of athletic competition.
  • The Summit- “Pursuing Victory With Honor”- was sponsored by the Josephson Institute of Ethics.
slide35
The Arizona Sports Summit Accord

The result was the Arizona Accord a document of 16 core principles that establish a framework of principles and a common language of VALUES that can be adopted and practiced widely so that sports can do a better job of enhancing the character and uplifting the ethics of the nation.

NOTE: Provide Arizona Accord to Coaches

what are the primary values promoted by your sports program

What Are the Primary Values Promoted by Your Sports Program?

Are your sports program’s values connected to your school community and family values?

slide37
Values
  • Values are the core desires, beliefs, and principles that motivate actions and shape the character of individuals and institutions.
slide38
WHAT IS HAPPENING TO THE FACE OF HIGH SCHOOL SPORTS?

What Values are you sending out to society?

slide39
IT HAS GOTTEN UGLY!!!

We have allowed it to be tattooed with behaviors that defy sportsmanship, and dyed with colors that hide the beauty and purity of high school sports

We have permitted it to be pierced with:

Violence

Disrespect

Profanity

Win At All Costs

Gamesmanship

Poor Sportsmanship

THIS FACE IS A REFLECTION OF AND REPRESENTS WHAT IS WRONG WITH HIGH SCHOOL SPORTS TODAY

slide42
Coaches Are the Decisive Element

“I have come to a frightening conclusion. I am the decisive element in gym, on the field, or in the pool. It is my personal approach that creates the climate. It is my daily mood that makes the weather. As a coach, I possess a tremendous power to make an athlete’s life miserable or joyous. I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration. I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal. In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis will be escalated or de-escalated, and a child humanized or de-humanized.”

— Adaptation of Haim Ginott by Dr. Tom Crawford, USOC Coaching Division

AS Parents and Coaches

WE DON’T WANT TO SEND MIXED SIGNALS

A good way to think about the six pillars of character
  • If this was your daughter, sister or friend, what kind of a person would you hope she is marrying?
trustworthiness
Trustworthiness
  • What does it truly mean to be trustworthy?
  • Athletes:
    • Can your coaches trust you?
    • Can your parents trust you?
    • Can your teammates trust you?
      • Are you worthy of trust?
  • Can parents trust the coach that they are caring for their athletes as if they are your own?
  • As parents, can you be trusted to support the programs and teams?
respect
Respect

  • Not a matter of degree or sometimes
respect49
Respect
  • Don’t engage in or permit profanity or obscene gestures during practices, sporting events, on team buses, or in any other situation where the behavior could reflect badly on the school or the sports program.

What you permit, you promote!

What you allow, you encourage!

  • Be a positive role model on and off the field and require the same of your athletes
responsibility52
Responsibility

Said the college professor,

“Such rawness in a student is a shame.

Lack of preparation in high school is to blame.

Said the high school teacher,

“Good heavens, that boy’s a fool. The fault, of course is with the middle school.”

The middle school teacher said, “From, such stupidity may I be spared. They sent him to me so unprepared.”

The primary teacher huffed, “Kindergarten blockheads all. They call that preparation? Why that is worse than

none at all.”

What kind of woman must the mother be?”

The mother said, “Poor helpless child. He’s not to blame. His father’s folks were just the same.”

Said the father at the end of the line,

“I doubt the rascal’s even mine.”

Gamesmanship
  • The gamesmanship model places such heavy emphasis on winning that adherents often adopt “end-justifies-the-means” standards of conduct.
  • Gamesmanship approaches encourage and sanction clever and effective ways of bending, evading, and breaking rules to gain a competitive advantage – it’s part of the game.

Everybody does it. It's only cheating if you get caught

“It's not a big deal. Never has there been a penalty kick in the history of soccer when a goalkeeper didn't cheat off the line.” -- U.S. team spokesman Aaron Heifetz

Gamesmanship

A Bronx Little League team tried to pass off 14 year old Danny Almonte as a 12-year-old to win the 2001 little league world series.

Almonte pitched four victories in the little league world series, including a perfect game. He struck out 62 of the 72 batters he faced.

Sportsmanship
  • Under the sportsmanship model, the way one plays the game is central.
  • Sport is seen as a very special activity where nobility and glory is found, not in winning, but in honorable competition in pursuit of victory.
