dc.description.abstract There is a current sportsmanship trend in our society which depicts a “win-at-all-costs” mentality by our parents, coaches and athletes. Many experts believe that this mentality is having a negative impact on the positive effects that organized sports can have on a young person. One study shows that approximately seventy percent of youth athletes will not participate in high school sports for various reasons, one of which being a lack of good sportsmanship practices by their coaches. Proper sportsmanship may not be an inherent trait in all young people; often times, good sportsmanship needs to be instilled by coaches and parents, and to do this effectively, coaches must be first trained on the techniques of providing a stable environment for sportsmanship to occur. Currently, there are programs and organizations that do offer sportsmanship training materials, but all at some type of monetary cost. Therefore, this project created a sportsmanship training manual for youth and high school football coaches on techniques for implementing proper sportsmanship teaching practices and every day drills into their programs that is designed to be of no cost, user friendly and time efficient. en
