Ethical Dilemmas for Coaches in Youth Sports

Jay Coakley, Ph.D.,  has put together a series of real-world ethical dilemmas that coaches and parents face every day in the world of youth sport. He is providing these scenarios for coaches, parents, and teachers to use as non-commercial learning tools. These scenarios are licensed under Creative Commons and forward the mission of CCSS to make sport more democratic, accessible and humane. The scenarios were inspired by the research of  Thompson and Dieffenbach: Thompson, Melissa & Kristen Dieffenbach (2016) Measuring professional ethics in coaching: Development of the PISC-Q. Ethics & Behavior 26(6): 507-523.” | PDF
