Sport plays an important role in the development of young people, it has been proven when sports and physical activities are included in Education. Children learn new skills in life, for example building confidence, accepting rules,making decisions, team working,communication skill,leadership,discipline and one I find important in sport Fair Play. I could go on giving more skills sports develops, but i have just pointed out a few.
Ethics in the sports environment is described as rules (i.e. Code of Conduct) that should be followed by all participants in sports.
Ethics promote discipline and keep sporting environments fair and fun. Ethics give an equal opportunity for everyone.
Values in sport is your involvement and belief that sport should be enjoyable and respectful.
Respect is important in sport as you should always respect the rules, the officials,the other people participating and yourself. You should always treat others how you would like to be treated No matter what their Race, Disability, Gender, or Age.
Ethics and Values are important because they rule out Right from Wrong.
If your club has a strong commitment towards values and ethics in sport then it will become a bigger more enjoyable and comfortable enviroment for participants.This will interest more and more young people it will also bring the club more revenue for more sports facilities. So having stong commitment towards Ethics and Values pays off.
The consequences of not giving sufficient attention to Ethics and Values can be a major disadvantage, as it can lead to young people leaving your club, your club will not be promoted well, therefore the club will lose out by money and participants, therefore the facilities will be poor and it could even result in the club being closed down.
Ethics and Values are a part of the sporting world.
