Search Emphasizing Sportsmanship in Youth Sports Coaches, teachers, and parents serve as role models for sportsmanlike behaviors in children.
This story from the Institute for the Study of Youth Sports examines the latest research on the topic of developing sportsmanship. The Institute at Michigan State University was founded by the Michigan Legislature in to research the benefits and detriments of participation in youth sports; to produce educational materials for parents, coaches, officials, and administrators; and to provide educational programs for coaches, officials, administrators, and parents.
A young basketball player takes a cheap shot at her opponent and does not get caught by the referee. After the game, she gloats about the action and her teammates congratulate her on the move.
After placing second in the finals of the meter freestyle, a disappointed swimmer walks away from an opponent's handshake and throws his goggles on the deck. The actions of those individuals may not make the headlines of your local paper or gain as much press as delinquent athletes.
Yet, those behaviors are unsportsmanlike. Sportsmanship involves a striving for success, while maintaining a commitment to being fair, honest, and respectful [and] to following the rules -- all of which is synonymous with being ethical or moral. See references 5 and 8 below.
In fact, young athletes years identified five dimensions to sportsmanship: A full commitment to sport participation. Respect for the rules and officials. Concern for social conventions such as being a good loser. Avoidance of the winning-at-all-costs mentality.
The question that arises is, Where did those athletes learn unsportsmanlike behaviors? And the more pressing question for sports leaders, What is the role of sport in nurturing sportsmanlike or unsportsmanlike behavior? It is contended that the choices made by an athlete to engage in sportsmanlike conduct depend, in part, on how the sport is structured by administrators, coaches, parents, and fans.
Sportsmanship attitudes and behaviors are learned in a like manner.
Therefore, being involved in sport alone is not sufficient to ensure that participants will learn sportsmanlike attitudes and behaviors. Rather it is the "social interactions that are fostered by the sport experience" that will determine the benefit of sport to athletes. Research has shown that the philosophy of a program, the goals for the team, and the teaching and modeling behaviors of adults can influence sportsmanlike behaviors.
The philosophy underlying a program can have an impact on what athletes perceive as appropriate behavior in a sport. Youth in Tai Kwon Do reported lower levels of anxiety and aggression, increased self-esteem, and improved social skills in comparison to those students who received only self-defense skills.
An overemphasis on winning in a sport may also cloud perceptions of moral behavior. For example, boys engaged in a Kickball World Series were less likely to be cooperative than boys who were just given the opportunity to engage in free play were. The authors concluded that an "emphasis on winning in organized sport may lead children to become rivalrous in social interactions with other children," which may in turn lead to a decline in helping others.Keywords: young people in india, youth in india, youth in society Introduction.
