Ethical Questions for Coaches/Competitors


It has been fairly well established that the decade of the '80s is a very competitive one. We are bombarded daily with competition for our attention, for our affection, for our time, and for our dollars. As a result. It becomes increasingly important for us to be able to intelligently make decisions, and to make them quickly. Sometimes there is time to ponder alternatives and to consider options. Often, however, that time is not available. At those moments, it is important to be able to draw upon a broad-based background o! information to assist us in the decision-making process. That background information will ultimately come to all of us, if we survive long enough. For our students, however, it may be more important that they are able to develop decision-making skills fairly quickly. Coaches and teachers can play an important part in the development of those skills.
