  • The standards are voluntary and are not a law, it applies to public playgrounds. There is no national enforcement body for playground safety; however, some jurisdictions in the United States have passed regulations requiring public playground operators to ensure that their playgrounds meet the WSF standard.

They are not retroactive and only apply to play spaces and equipment installed after the date the standard was published.
  • These standards are of a qualitative nature and address issues personal safety. While the standards are flexible to a degree in relation to design issues on a site-specific basis, they represent what the council is trying to achieve for all playgrounds.

How to be an effective coach ?

Sport and fitness coaching is an art as well as a science and a great coach needs to know more than just the rules of the game. Great coaches also know how to communicate with players in a way that gets results on the playing field. The goal of great coaching is to guide, inspire and empower an athlete to realize and develop his or her full potential.

Guidelines for Teaching Sportsmanship :

Be a good role model . As a coach, you must constantly keep in mind that your actions do, in fact, speak louder than words. An obvious corollary: Admit to your players when you fall short of your own sportsmanship ideals.

Emphasize sportsmanship from the beginning. The process of “coaching for character” should start early, from your first contact with players. If you’re recruiting a player to come out for the team or a player comes to you to discuss trying out, what you say will set the tone for your relationship with that player. Tell them what your expectations are, how you understand the basic principles of sportsmanship, and why these principles are important.

Talk about combining seriousness and playfulness. Since the principles of sportsmanship are based on the very nature of sport, and sport is a form of competitive play, explain to your players that sport is “serious fun.” Help them understand that bad sportsmanship is often a matter of being “too serious,” of forgetting that there’s more to sport than winning, and, in some cases, a matter of not being serious enough, of forgetting that striving to be excellent and striving to win within the rules and customs of the game are essential parts of competition.

Talk about the relationship between sportsmanship and success. Make sure your players understand that “success” in sports is not merely a matter of achieving victory, and that victory without sportsmanship, dignity, and honor is hollow. At the same time, try to show your players that respect for the team and your sport, as well as respect between the players and the coach, might help develop habits and talents that will improve your chances of winning.

Regularly use the language of sportsmanship. The language of sportsmanship should become a regular part of your coaching vocabulary. Don’t leave this language behind after the first team meeting. The language of “respect” should be heard by your players often. If you earn their respect, the language you use around them will become a part of their way of looking at things. Never underestimate the power of language. The right words make it possible to understand things we couldn’t otherwise understand.

Develop clear guidelines for dealing with unsportsmanlike behavior. Make it clear to your players from the beginning of the season how you will deal with actions that violate the principles of sportsmanship. If you decide not to allow taunting, showboating, or arguing with officials, tell the players what the specific penalty (or gradations of penalties) will be if the rules are violated. You can spell out the sequence of possible punishments and explain that you will decide how serious the violation has been; in other words, you don’t have to decide in advance what the penalty for every possible violation will be, but you do have to be clear that there are consequences for violations. Be clear about the process. If you’ll make the decisions, say that. If you’ll allow the team to be involved, say that.

Conflict Management in sports :

Everyone would agree that coaching by its very nature can be very stressful. The coach by himself has agreed to place himself in a situation where he will repeatedly face never ending conflict. The head coach will likely have disputes with opposing coaches and game officials, as well as from his or her own players and their family members. No matter what a coach decides to do, it is highly likely that his decision will be questioned or even resisted by someone.

  • Be approachable to a point unless they have crossed over into the absolutely do not tolerate category
  • Control your emotions be calm and professional.
  • Issue a warning if they exhibit behavior in the absolutely do not tolerate category, then issue a warning be firm, yet unemotional.
  • Sanction: apply the penalty as directed by the rule book for the unsorting or inappropriate behavior.
