Many coaches don't provide any type of guidance manual helping players understand team policies, rules, and responsibilities. This is especially true at lower levels of competition. This book will benefit organized programs, those wishing to improve individual skills, basic knowledge of the game, and parents working with their children on their backyard courts.

Paraeducators work in virtually every school—but until now, no systematic training program has existed to teach them how to work effectively with children in physical education settings. Paraeducators in Physical Education: A Training Guide to Roles and Responsibilities is a comprehensive yet easy-to-use training package for teachers, administrators, and paraeducators. This book and CD-ROM package puts everything you need at your fingertips for effective training from prekindergarten through high school settings for both general and adapted physical education. It presents thorough and practical information across a wide spectrum of issues, including the roles and responsibilities of paraeducators, providing for physical and emotional safety, dealing with difficult behavior, instructional strategies, assessment, and individualized education program (IEP) development. The CD-ROM includes seven PowerPoint presentations to guide training sessions along with easy-to-print handouts in the book to reinforce and extend paraeducators' learning. This package is useful for in-service days, staff meetings, and independent study programs in school settings. It's also applicable in college settings, where the material can be used in teaching paraeducators and training the trainers of preservice and in-service teachers.

The latest edition of Ethics in Sport doesn't rest on its laurels as the finest and most comprehensive collection of literature to date on moral and ethical issues confronting sport in contemporary society. The diverse anthology of essays written by world-renowned scholars has been updated to reflect the very latest issues of significance in the sporting world and contains many valuable changes. A primer on ethics has been added at the beginning of the text, making this book even more accessible to readers with no background in ethical studies or philosophy. In addition, while some classic essays were retained from the first edition, more than half of the essays are new to the second edition. Ethics in Sport, Second Edition, also includes three previously unpublished essays to provide readers with new perspectives on current themes and how they compare and contrast with already published views. In addition, the text features expanded sections on fair play and social ethics. A completely revamped section on drug use and genetic technology brings readers up to date on ethical questions in these controversial and rapidly changing areas. These new features make this text the ideal choice for sport management and sport studies courses.

Includes a chapter by former College at Brockport faculty member R. Scott Kretchmar: Juegos y el jugar: especulaciones sobre el valor del futbol.
La pelota no dobla? es un libro que analiza filosoficamente la vivencia futbolistica cotidiana y algunas de las perplejidades a las que el futbol nos expone. El libro no pretende encontrar soluciones a los problemas del juego sino ensayar respuestas que nos permitan comprender y disfrutar mas plenamente nuestra pasion por este deporte. En este sentido, al abordar, entre otros, temas de etica y estetica futbolistica, el libro cuestiona que futbol queremos y que queremos del futbol. Es decir, la propuesta aqui es debatir que tipo de actitudes y comportamientos hacen la prectica del futbol mas razonable, saludable, satisfactoria y significativa. Creemos que la indagacion filosofica en torno al futbol es un ejercicio que beneficia a todos aquellos que se inquietan ante las preguntas punzantes que la voragine de la practica del deporte nos plantea. Por ello, el proposito de La pelota no dobla? es tambien una propuesta al lector para que se adentre en las perplejidades que encuentra y vive en el futbol, y para que desarrolle un itinerario filosofico personal.

Practical Philosophy of Sport and Physical Activity, Second Edition, helps students examine key moral questions in sport. Its approach to the content helps students follow and dissect ethical arguments, think through philosophic issues, and apply theory to practice. Each chapter includes objectives, philosophical exercises, reviews, and study questions to reinforce understanding. Kretchmar's engaging writing style accentuates important topics of discussion, focusing the readers' attention on the philosophy behind the practice or strategy. As a result, students develop their philosophical skills, refine their personal philosophy concerning physical activity and sport, and learn that philosophy can be clear, practical, and holistic, rather than obscure, overly theoretical, and dualistic.
The text is arranged in four parts. Part I introduces students to the nature and methods of philosophy. Part II focuses on issues relating to the nature of the athlete or client and includes analyses of dualism, scientific materialism, and holism. Part III delves into kinesiology issues, including the nature of play, games, and competition, and Part IV provides expanded material on ethics, value choices, and active lifestyles.
This text provides students with the practical tools and specific techniques they need to think ethically and systematically, as they become skilled practitioners in the field of physical activity and sport. In doing so, it demystifies philosophy and reveals it as the guiding element in our understanding of, and approach to, activity, games, and competitions.

Now philosophy finds its real home — in the dugout. In Baseball and Philosophy, 18 professors — some from the new field devoted to the philosophy of sport, others unapologetic baseball fans — explore the sport's deeper aspects. How can Zen be applied to hitting? Do you play to win or play by the rules? Is it ethical to employ deception in sports? Can a game be defined by its written rules or are there also other constraints? What can the U.S. Supreme Court learn from umpiring? Why should baseball be the only industry exempt from antitrust laws? These are some of the questions addressed in this witty, provocative blend of two major American pastimes: watching baseball and thinking about it.
