A Coach's Code of Conduct. Position Statement
Lyman, Linda; Ewing, Marty; Martino, Nan
National Association for Sport and Physical Education
Coaches exert a profound impact on our youths; therefore, society sets high expectations for them. As such, whether coaches are compensated or work solely as volunteers, they are responsible for executing coaching as a professional. If we are to continue to enhance the cultural perceptions of coaching, we must strive to develop and master the standards that the National Association for Sport and Physical Education (NASPE) has set forth. NASPE intends for the "National Standards for Sport Coaches" to provide direction for administrators, coaches, athletes and the community regarding the skills and knowledge that coaches should possess before coaching in various sport organizations, leagues and governing bodies. In this statement, which revises and replaces NASPE's 2001 Position Statement "Coaches Code of Conduct," NASPE's Sport Steering Committee establishes the Code of Conduct to which coaches at all levels should hold themselves accountable. (Original authors of this position statement are: Randy Crist, Rebecca Mowrey, and Valerie Wayda.)
