Includes a chapter co-authored by College at Brockport faculty member César R. Torres: More fulfilling lives through sport : an intersubjective justification for balancing elite sport and sport-for-all.
Sport is often perceived as being divided into two separate domains: mass participation and elite . In many countries, policy and funding in these two fields are managed by separate agencies, and investment is often seen as a choice between the two. Elite Sport and Sport-for-All explores the points of connection and sources of tension between elite and mass participation sport. The book’s multi-disciplinary and international line-up of contributors seeks to define, examine, and develop solutions to this problematic relationship.
Drawing on research and case studies from around the world―with examples from Denmark, Canada, South Africa and Israel―the book explores key contemporary issues including: does effective talent identification require depth of participation? ; do elite performances inspire greater participation? ; the role of the Paralympic movement in mass participation and elite sport ; and the economic aspects of their co-existence.
The first study of its kind, Elite Sport and Sport-for-All addresses a central dichotomy in sport policy and, as such, is important reading for all students, researchers, policy-makers or administrators working in sport development and policy.
Pensando la Educación Física Como Área de Conocimiento : Problematizaciones Pedagógicas del Sujeto y el Cuerpo
Adrián Ferreria and César R. Torres
Compiled by Adrián Ferreira.
Includes a chapter co-authored by College at Brockport faculty member César Torres: El Equipo justo..
Pensando la Educación Física como área de conocimiento ha sido producto de las investigaciones, artículos y ponencias presentadas en las Conferencias Académicas -- del período 2013-2015 -- producidas por el Seminario Permanente de Investigación del Laboratorio de Investigaciones Pedagógicas de la Actividad Física y el Deporte, del ISEF Nº 1 "Dr. Enrique Romero Brest". El texto se dirige a los estudiantes, profesores, licenciados e investigadores de Educación Física así como a todo actor de la cultura corporal del movimiento. Ellibro presenta una pluralidad y diversidad de producciones que relacionan a la educación, la Educación Física y el sujeto, reconociendo dos de sus propiedades o aspectos distintivos: la diferencia y la singularidad. Compone un colectivo de enfoques y perspectivas que incluyen y se involucran con problematizaciones pedagógicas y abordajes epistémicos del campo disciplinar de la Educación Física. En tal sentido, aspira a priorizar preguntas que pueden ser pensadas desde múltiples dimensiones, fundamentalmente, a partir del análisis del sujeto y el cuerpo en los discursos y las prácticas de la formación docente en Educación Física. A lo largo de sus veinticuatro artículos, producidos por docentes, académicos e investigadores reconocidos nacional e internacionalmente, mantiene un grado de complejidad como también de consistencia e inconformismo creativo en el camino de indagar y abordar nuevas preguntas y problemas. Pretende así responder al interés en ampliar las miradas sobre el pensar en movimiento, desde la indagación permanente, hacia nuevas teorizaciones. Quienes transitan el estudio, la profesión o la investigación del campo de la Educación Física, aun desde distintas ópticas e intereses, encontrarán en esta obra artículos de su genuino interés, elaborados con el objetivo de que el lector pueda, en su práctica, dar cuenta y reformular lo construido.

"... a landmark publication in sport studies. It goes further than any book has before in tracing the contours of the discipline of the philosophy of sport and in surveying the core themes, approaches and theories that form its disciplinary fabric. The book explores the ways in which an understanding of philosophy can inform our understanding of important prevailing issues in sport. Edited by two of the most significant figures in the development of the philosophy of sport, Mike McNamee and Bill Morgan, and with contributions from many of the world’s leading sport philosophers, this is an invaluable companion reference volume for any course in the social scientific study of sport, and an essential addition to the bookshelf of any serious scholar of the philosophy and/or ethics of sport."--Back cover

Includes a short discussion of the view of Scott Kretchmar (former College at Brockport faculty member) on pages 5-53.
Addressing both collegiate and professional sports, the updated edition of Fair Play: The Ethics of Sport explores the ethical presuppositions of competitive athletics and their connection both to ethical theory and to concrete moral dilemmas that arise in actual athletic competition. This fourth edition has been updated with new examples, including a discussion of Spygate by the New England Patriots and recent discoveries on the use of performance enhancing drugs by top athletes. Two additional authors, Cesar R. Torres and Peter F. Hager, bring to this edition a discussion of the moral issues involved in youth sports and the ethics of being a fan, as well as a fresh perspective on the theories of broad internalism and the quest for excellence. Furthermore, major criticisms of broad internalism by philosophers William J. Morgan and Scott Kretchmar add a new dimension to the discussion on the moral foundations of winning.

"The Journey to Wholeness book will literally take the reader on a journey into the diverse lives of 13 women with disabilities. This is a one of a kind book as there is no other compilation of women’s voices like this one. These women come from different backgrounds, experience different barriers and triumphs, and find joys in many unexpected places. Their disabilities range from Deafness, to MS, to Fibromyalgia to visual impairments, to rheumatoid arthritis and spina bifida. Some are born with their disabilities, some acquire theirs quickly or progressively over time. Some continue working, and some do not work after their disability is diagnosed. Some have children and some do not. Some are religious and some find spirituality in the outdoors, or by volunteering. One thing for sure is that these women are brutally honest, sincere and resilient.
The reader is asked to take this ride with the contributors and learn that people with disabilities do not want to be pitied, or excluded. Disability can be a pathway to new opportunities, friendships, leadership opportunities, hobbies, and experiences. Disability requires a new way of thinking, but can be navigated and embraced when the woman see the possibilities and opportunities that they create."--Publisher

"How kids with visual impairments play sports."
Everybody Plays! is a fun storybook written by Cindy Lou Aillaud and Lauren Lieberman that follows an elementary school-age child to a sports camp for children who have visual impairment, blindness, or deafblindness. Written at a 4th grade reading level, readers learn about sports and recreational physical activities that are enjoyed universally and about specific sports designed for persons with visual impairment and blindness. The young storyteller describes how sport modifications and equipment adaptations help the campers have a blast when they learn about sports and play with new friends and coaches. Young readers learn about Paralympic sports and are encouraged to identify the Paralympic sports that the storyteller experiences while at camp. Each sport and recreational activity has a Listen Up! page that introduces the sports novice to each sport or activity. If a reader does not need the detailed explanation of a particular activity, the print, braille, and electronic books are designed so the Listen Up! pages can be skipped.

Includes a chapter written by former College at Brockport faculty member R. Scott Kretchmar: Bench players : do coaches have a moral obligation to play benchwarmers?
Includes a chapter co-authored by two current College at Brockport faculty members: Cesar R. Torres and Peter F. Hager: Competition, ethics, and coaching youth.
The Ethics of Coaching Sports features invited contributions written by prominent scholars examining a broad range of normative or evaluative issues that arise from the role of the coach in competitive sports. The collection is accessible and comprehensive, including discussion of concrete issues in coaching, such as the distribution of playing time, bullying, the implications of recent events surrounding the Pennsylvania State scandal, and Title IX and gender equity. The contributing authors also explore the larger ethical considerations of the role of the coach as educator, leader, and moral role model; special considerations when coaching children; and an examination of the failures of coaches to meet appropriate standards when they do not respect their players and their programs. Each contributor presents the main arguments and positions relevant to their chosen topic and, with the ground set, the authors then seek to advance the reader’s theoretical and philosophical understanding of coaching. Robert L. Simon’s introductions to each of the book’s four parts help to summarize the main theses of the contributors’ chapters and examine differences between how each author approaches their chosen subject.Study questions are also provided for each chapter, making The Ethics of Coaching Sports the perfect companion for classes on sports ethics and coaching.

Includes a chapter co-authored by College at Brockport faculty member César R. Torres: More than games: Olympism as a moral approach to sport.
It is said the champions of the ancient Olympic Games received a crown of olive leaves, symbolizing a divine blessing from Nike, the winged goddess of victory. While the mythology of the ancient games has come to exemplify the highest political, religious, community, and individual ideals of the time, the modern Olympic Games, by comparison, are widely known as an international, bi-annual sporting event where champions have the potential to earn not only glory for their country, but lucrative endorsement deals and the perks of worldwide fame. The Olympics and Philosophy examines the Olympic Movement from a variety of theoretical perspectives to uncover the connection between athleticism and philosophy for a deeper appreciation of the Olympic Pillars of Sport, Environment, and Culture.
While today's Olympic champions are neither blessed by the gods nor rewarded with wreaths of olive, the original spirit and ancient ideals of the Olympic Movement endure in its modern embodiment. Editors Heather L. Reid and Michael W. Austin have assembled a team of international scholars to explore topics such as the concept of excellence, ethics, doping, gender, and race. Interweaving ancient and modern Olympic traditions, The Olympics and Philosophy considers the philosophical implications of the Games' intersection with historical events and modern controversy in a unique analysis of tradition and the future of the Olympiad.

After seven years of extensive research, Dr. Torres reveals the unknown face of the first sporting event that crossed the borders of the South American countries. The games were part of the celebrations for the centenary of the Independence of Brazil, but more than that, it was also the beginning of sports organization on the continent. "They are very important because they mark the starting point of for the internationalization of sports in South America," said Torres in an interview with GE.net.
It was from the Latin American Games in Rio de Janeiro that countries started to organize national associations responsible for the development of the sport. Besides Brazil, the event saw the participation of Argentina, Chile, Uruguay. Paraguay took part only in soccer, and Mexico only sent a journalist.
Includes the report written in 1923 by Count Henri de Baillet-Latour regarding the mission fulfilled for the IOC in South America, Central America, and North America.

Based on the latest research from the field, Motor Learning and Development explains how motor development affects motor learning and provides a framework for establishing programs that facilitate skill acquisition for all learners. This first-of-its-kind undergraduate text serves as a primary resource for integrating this broad range of material within a single course. Motor Learning and Development examines the development of movement skill in humans from infancy to older adulthood and how differing motor, cognitive, and social abilities affect when, why, and how an individual learns motor skills. Begins by providing a foundational understanding of the concepts in motor learning and motor development. Readers will discover the fundamental motor skills developed during childhood as well as the individual functional and structural constraints present in childhood and adolescence. Next, readers explore physical activity and movement in relationship to young, middle, and older adulthood (including the effects of significant life changes such as leaving home, entering the workforce, getting married, and having children) and the social and psychological changes associated with retirement and aging. A unique conclusion brings the text’s concepts together to illustrate how to design developmentally appropriate programs for all types of learners. Building on the theoretical knowledge of previous chapters, readers will also learn how to prepare, develop, and implement developmentally appropriate movement programs.

Includes a chapter by College at Brockport faculty member Cesar R. Torres: A defense of expatriate coaching in sport.
Is the role of the sports coach simply to improve sporting performance? What are the key ethical issues in sports coaching practice?
Despite the increasing sophistication of our understanding of the player-sport-coach relationship, the dominant perspective of the sports coach is still an instrumental one, focused almost exclusively on performance, achievement and competitive success. In this ground-breaking new book, leading sport scholars challenge that view, arguing that the coaching process is an inherently moral one with an inescapably ethical dimension, involving intense relationships between players and coaches. The Ethics of Sports Coaching critically examines this moral aspect, develops a powerful idea of what sports coaching ought to be, and argues strongly that coaches must be aware of the ethical implications of their acts.
The book is structured around four central themes: the nature of coaching, the character of the coach, coaching specific populations and specific coaching contexts. It explores in detail many of the key ethical issues in contemporary sports coaching, including: coaching special populations ; the ethics of talent identification ; understanding the limits of performance ; enhancement ; coaching dangerous sports ; expatriate coaching ; setting professional standards in sports coaching.
Combining powerful theoretical positions with clear insights into the everyday realities of sports coaching practice, this is an agenda-setting book. It is essential reading for all students, researchers and practitioners with an interest in sports coaching or the ethics and philosophy of sport.

Training Professionals in the Practice of Sport Psychology provides a detailed look at all facets of the education process from training requirements to certification to developing a mental training program. Intended for those seeking to become sport psychology professionals, and unlike any other counseling text, this book supplies students with the information, tools, and essential preparatory steps needed to become a fully certified sport psychologist.
This is an essential graduate text for applied sport psychology and professional practice courses in sport psychology.
"The contents of this book are truly unique, as no other resource of its kind exists. Many of us who have taught applied sport psychology graduate courses and worked with athletes would have benefitted considerably if such a text had existed previously. Fortunately, it does now. And, fortunately, sport psychologists with interests in directly applying their knowledge to athletes will benefit considerably in the present and the future." -- From the foreword by Robert N. Singer, professor emeritus, Department of Applied Physiology and Kinesiology, University of Florida

«¿Cuál es la delgada línea entre la picardía y la trampa? ¿Existe la ética en el mundo de la más alta competencia en el deporte? ¿Tienen premio los buenos perdedores? Con esfuerzo, horas de análisis y mucho trabajo, César R. Torres, nos regala esta pieza valiosa y asume el desafío de pensar para escribir, y escribir para pensar. Las bibliotecas agradecidas de incorporar este material atractivo y nosotros los lectores, de parabienes por el placer de disfrutarlo.» Román Iucht (periodista, Radio Continental y diario La Nación)
«Gol de media cancha recorre los temas que rodean la práctica deportiva, los problematiza para poner a prueba los valores y las decisiones de los practicantes y, sin pelos en la lengua ni eufemismos, ejemplifica las situaciones con anécdotas de jugadores, técnicos y periodistas; tanto las que merecen recordarse como las que no deberían siquiera haber ocurrido. En ese tono, llega hasta posicionarse a contracorriente de la tradición y el sentido común de muchos médicos, comunicadores y profesores para alentar a tod@s a abrazar una vida (deportiva) plena.» Ángela Aisenstein, (docente, Universidad Nacional de Luján y Universidad de San Andrés)
«La obra de César R. Torres resulta contracultural en un contexto deportivo que desconoce valores esenciales y difunde modelos inadmisibles. El autor vuelve a sorprender a la comunidad del deporte con la claridad, solvencia y agudeza que lo caracteriza. Este libro debería constituirse en material obligatorio de lectura de docentes, dirigentes, deportistas y padres de los niños que emprenden el maravilloso desafío de practicar deporte. Gol de media cancha le es fiel a su título.» Carlos Siffredi (Director General, Club de Amigos)
