The Ethics of Coaching Sports PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Ethics of Coaching Sports free pdf "The Ethics of Coaching" features invited contributions written by prominent scholars examining a broad variety of normative or evaluative issues that arise from the role of the coach in competitive sport. Each essay presents a review of the main arguments and positions relevant to each chosen topic and, with the ground set, the chapter authors then seek to advance the discussion by making an intellectual contribution of their own. The collection is accessible and comprehensive, including essays on the role of the coach as educator, leader, and moral role model- the duties, rights, and obligations of players and coaches, both morally and legally- special issues involved in coaching children- and an examination of the failures of coaches to meet appropriate standards when they fail to respect their players and their programs. Introductions to each part not only summarize the main theses but also explain differences in approach and contrasts in the arguments of each chapter. Study questions are also provided for each essay.
