A Survey of Intercollegiate Awards for Athletes at Two-Year Colleges.
Farkouh, Nicholas
Since the author felt that junior college athletic awards should not necessarily follow senior college practices, he conducted a survey. He sought the opinion of 110 athletes, coaches, and athletic directors. Of the 80 replies, he tabulated 25 from each category of respondent. On nine statements, they agreed, disagreed, or held no opinion. After examining the replies, the author recommended that (1) 2-year colleges should give awards to athletes only on intercollegiate teams; (2) the first award should be chenille letter, with a small letter for those not meeting the criteria for a major letter; (3) a certificate, stating the nature of the award, should go with each one; (4) a second-year award in the same sport should be a plaque; (5) an award should cost less than $5.00; (6) after consulting the athletic director or written criteria and after making his criteria known, the coach alone should determine which members of his team receive awards; (7) the coach should treat disciplinary problems individually, according to the severity of the offense and whether it was committed on or off the campus; (8) the number of awards should not be predetermined. The practices followed at the author's own college (Staten Island) are described. (HH)
