Athletic Coach I Have Garnered Term Paper

… "A pronating foot rolls toward the inside. A supinating foot rolls toward the outside. A Morton's foot is a combination of these two abnormalities." (Levy 199).

A pronating foot can result in knee problems from the joint being repeatedly twisted. I have found that most people with a pronating foot can be treated with a simple arch support, but naturally, this is not the right answer for everyone. I have learned that, "For 10% of runners, an arch support provides too little lift, and for another 10% an arch provides too much lift. These 20% of runners need a custom-made shoe insert, or orthotic device." (Levy 200). This is why -- for my distance team -- although I require every member to use an arch…. [read more]

Autonomy-Supportive Coaching Style Capstone Project

… (2004).

Another factor that is impossible to control given the structure of this study is the fact that there are multiple coaches involved and every coach is different. How they control and pose situations is going differ from person to person, as noted by Stevens (2012). Perhaps it would not be wide enough of a sample to look at one team in one sport and with coach, but it would indeed eliminate most of the challenges in getting a true "apples to apples" argument as there would only be one sport, one gender, one coach and so on. However, there would only be one outcome to look at and the dynamics of the team may make that troublesome. A player dominating the handling of the…. [read more]

Sport Management Term Paper

… Sport Management

Regardless of the field or industry involved, different management styles prevail across the nation. In sports however, the management style can mean the difference between a championship team and a team that becomes a constant joke among everyone except the fans.

One study examined the management style of college sports coaches and what they do and don't do to motivate their players.

The article begins by admitting that there is not much information available about how coaches use their management techniques to motivate their players, at least the teams through the National Collegiate Athletic Association (Morrison, 1999).

The article was founded in the desire to initiate and describe the motivational factors of the group of coaches and create a measurement for different management…. [read more]

Intercollegiate Athletics Program Guarantee Essay

… Other critics of intercollegiate athletics programs point to the lack of transparency involved in how these programs are funded and administered. In this regard, Nelson and Watt (1999) emphasize that, "Activity fees constitute a steady source of income for athletic departments regardless of the success of the football team. The distribution of such monies on many campuses is hidden from students, that they do not often know what exactly they are paying for, and that they would be reluctant to fork over the money so readily if they did" (39). To be truly successful from the perspective of all stakeholders over the long-term, Nelson and Watt (1999) maintain that the invisible hand should dictate what college students want from their athletics programs, if anything at….

Motivation and Confidence in Sports Thesis

… 51). As it were, the association that exists between sport confidence and performance should be an important issue for psychologists in sports to analyze. Actually, sport confidence can be a varying and temporary variant. The inconsistency in sport confidence that exists in duration of time is influenced in basic by the sources of the confidence. (Weinberg & Gould, 1999, p.24).

Researchers can make an effort to realize how the sources of sport confidence would make an impact on the athlete's performance, level of confidence, cognition, emotion and behaviors. They may also carefully analyze the confidence that is derived from sources by realizing the interaction of the social background, organizational cultures, and the nuances of the athlete. Sport competition is a basic atmosphere…. [read more]

High School Sports Impact on Student Academics Thesis

… But the NCAA reserves the right to overrule principals' decisions. The NCAA's modest response followed meetings with national education groups, including AASA. The Minnesota Association of School Administrators has submitted to AASA for consideration a resolution that states it is not the NCAA's role to dictate course content to high schools.

The U.S. Department of Justice also has challenged the NCAA for automatically rejecting courses involving special education services. Some students who had attained acceptable college entrance test scores despite their disability were not allowed to participate as freshmen because they had taken high school courses involving special education assistance. The NCAA argued in several court cases that it does not have to follow the Americans with Disabilities Act. After months of…. [read more]

African-American Culture Has Evolved Term Paper

… African-American culture has evolved significantly in the past two decades. While the overall socio-economic conditions of African-Americans within the United States have changed substantially for the better, their cultural and institutional instincts can only be subjectively understood. One of the growing phenomenons of this era is the emergence of sports not only as part of their cultural legacy, but a defining factor in masculinity. This is no where more epitomized then the rise of the Los Angeles Lakers and the emergence of African-American sports stars as cultural icons for masculinity development. Basketball has not only become an escape for the perpetually poor and "ghetto rats," but also a defining feature of masculinity within African-American communities. The rise of the Los Angeles Lakers and specifically Kobe…. [read more]

Public Speaking Advertising Policy Planned Events Case Study

… A raffle for door prizes took place with prizes including such as stadium seats, shirts that had been printed to represent the school's future team. The table centerpieces were formed by poms that were the schools colors and the entire room had a festive air and one that was anticipatory of a great school football team.

Donations were taken at the end of the banquet and the school raised a total of $19,298.00 to support the formation of a high school football team.

The information provided by the speakers was persuasive and informative and served to garner more support than was originally hoped for at this initial event.

Ten high school teachers stepped forward to assist with the team in various ways including one teacher…. [read more]

American Football in Europe Essay

… NLF Europa

By the end of June 1997, NFL Europa announced that it would cease all operations, effectively ending the NFL's hope of selling American Football to the world as a viable commodity. This essay will explore the cause of the failure of football in Europe. The NFL always markets itself as a saleable commodity. Unfortunately, there were no buyers in Europe. Of the many reasons for this NFL failure, some reasons stand out. There is already a sport that has captured the imagination worldwide and especially in Europe, soccer. These and other sports have already been well established in Europe and American football had significant difficulties taking root. American football is a sport that is played in isolation. No other nations in the world…. [read more]

Prep-To-Pro' NBA Draft According to Brian Hindo Essay

… ¶ … prep-to-pro' NBA draft

According to Brian Hindo's essay entitled "The NBA's Youth Squad," the drafting of high school age athletes by the National Basketball Association may be rapidly coming to an end. Hindo argues that the league will have to seriously consider bowing to public pressure and end its long-standing policy of drafting the most attractive high school draft 'picks,' before these students enter college, what is commonly called the 'prep to pro' recruitment drive (Hindo 2004). Early recruitment means that the high school students lose their eligibility to play as nonprofessional athletes in college, but can score multimillion dollar contracts -- before they are old enough to vote, in some cases.

Few high school prodigy basketball players can resist rejecting a guaranteed…. [read more]

coaching and counseling differences Research Proposal

… Counseling represents an ethical and competent application of relationships for facilitating emotional development and acceptance, self- knowledge, and optimum improvement of individual resources. The general goal is offering a chance to endeavor towards leading a more resourceful and satisfying life. Counselor-client relationships differ in accordance with need; however, they might deal with developmental problems, tackling and solving particular issues, decision-making, crisis management, dealing with internal conflict, knowledge and personal insight enhancement, and relationship skill improvement (Gladding 2004). Although some of these objectives are also shared with coaching techniques, the counseling approach works to address these items from its own internal perspective.

The task of counseling addresses wellness, professional development, personal development, and pathological issues. That is, a counselor addresses relationship-related areas (Casey 1996), including inter-…. [read more]

Twentieth Century, the Brazilian National Term Paper

… "

Neither hex nor war could stop his victory, and by the time he won three World Cups, he had even put a war on hiatus, where in Nigeria, the Biafran Civil War was officially paused with a three day truce to watch Pele play in two exhibition games.

Pele was a hero. Not only was he a stellar athlete, he was a good man whose intentions were honest and successes visible. He overcame poverty, racial discrimination, and physical stresses to succeed, providing a great role model for the millions of Brazilians for whom national identity was muddied. While race and poverty confused the social context of post-colonial Brazil, soccer became part of its ability to redefine itself on its own terms. Soccer, the national…. [read more]

Importance of Affirmative Action Term Paper

… Validity of Data

America considers herself the land of the free, home of the brave, and while the second component to this maxim is rarely challenged, the first has come under fire throughout all of the nation's history, particularly in the last 40 years.

After all, America is a nation of stark contrasts: On one hand, it is truly the only nation in the world in which a minority can literally immigrate one day, and be well on the way to a successful career and job the next, without the shackles of prejudice and discrimination.

However, this experience is not shared by all immigrants, and it is certainly not shared by the largest indigenous minority in the United States: African-Americans. Together with Hispanic-Americans, African-Americans represent…. [read more]

Children Being Raised by Stepparents That Are Not of the Same Race or Culture Term Paper

… Children Raised by Stepparents

Of Different Race Or Culture

This work in research investigates the inherent problems that exist in families characterized by parents and stepparents of a biracial union, or of a union that is characterized by diversity in terms of ethnicity, cultural, or religious differences or the diverse households headed by lesbian or gay parents. The conceptual framework of this research is the socio-cultural theory of Tharp and the Spheres of Influence as proposed in the work of Epstein. The literature review in this work notes that there is very little subject matter in this area and this study concludes that longitudinal research is critically needed in this subject area for the purpose of gaining an understanding of the challenges faced by these….

Lifespan Development Term Paper

… Lifespan Development: Britney Spears

Many people believe that they know Britney Spears. Having grown up in front of a camera, first on Mickey Mouse Club, and then as a major worldwide pop star, her life was covered by the camera. Unfortunately, Spears might be more notable for her personal problems than for her major life success. She had a public marriage followed quickly by two children and a divorce. However, it was her post-divorce behavior that garnered a significant amount of attention. She engaged in some publicly erratic behavior, which was apparently even more dramatic behind the scenes. The breakdown led to speculation by people that Spears was suffering from a bio-chemical disorder, with most people speculating that she was bi-polar. It also led to…. [read more]

Soviet Union and the New Russia Research Paper

… Soviet Union and the New Russia as a U.S. Security Threat

At the end of World War II, roughly Summer 1945, Europe was in shambles. Millions had been killed, many of the governments so disenfranchised that they had to be rebuilt. The infrastructure in most of Europe was in shambles, but unlike the situation after World War II, the United States found a new determination in President Truman and his staff. Because they wanted to build up a democratic Europe, aid was put into place (the Marshall Plan) to help restore Europe to hegemony and self-sufficiency. However, because Europe was in such turmoil and there was somewhat of a power vacuum that France, England, the United States, and of course, the Soviet Union, wished to…. [read more]

Change Leadership Essay

… " His reference is to the fact that Yoast sacrificed his own inauguration into the coach's hall of fame in order to help the Titans win the championship. Yoast, like Boone, has the potential to be a change leader who understood the principles of social justice that were transcendent to the smaller victory of winning at sports. Yet Yoast needed Boone more than vice-versa. Boone would have become a change leader on his own and without Yoast's assistance, whereas Yoast had been unable to lead the Titans to the winning season they had without Boone.

Change leadership is a complex concept that involves direct experience and knowledge, as well as insight, intelligence, and personality traits like confidence and humility. An active and engaging form of…. [read more]

Freud's Concept of Sublimation and Football Thesis

… Freud Sublimation Football secretly believe that if one had the means of studying the sublimation of instincts as thoroughly as their repression, one might find quite natural psychological explanations which would render your humanitarian assumption unnecessary."

Freud 308-309)

The development of modern pastimes if often thought divorced of history, and yet Freud and other historical thinkers would likely disagree. Freud's concept of sublimation is in fact one example of an sincere and lasting explanation for how and why modern peoples seek and become enamored with certain pastimes. One of the most popular U.S. sports is probably the best example. American Football is often seen as an outlet by many for the appropriate expression of sublimated drives and urges, such as the suppression of sexual aggression…. [read more]

Scott 2003 Thesis

… Hall 2003

Scott (2003) offers definitions associated with three perspectives: a rational system definition (which focuses on normative structures), a natural system definition (which focuses on behavioral structure) and an open system definition (which focuses on organizations as component in large system of relation). Which of the three definitions is most helpful in understanding an organization?

In his article regarding organizational structure, Hall suggests that organizations are becoming an increasingly studied subject by a variety of disciplines, as they are extraordinarily important to a variety of cultural and sociological studies and implications. Whether they function as independent organisms, miniscule models of society, or highly formalized institutions, organizations can be classified under a variety of theoretical systems. Hall uses three definitions to discuss the differing views…. [read more]

Steve Jobs and Entrepreneurialship College Essay

… He believed this was the same for him, and his job -- keep the key people doing what they were best at that exemplified the organization. Moreover, while he was still impatient, tough and unforgiving; these trends mellowed to the point that he realized that pushing people to their best was different than pushing them off their game (Palis, 2012)

From the Apple perspective there a number of personality traits that aided Jobs becoming one of the most innovative entrepreneurial thinkers of the 20th century.
