Youth and Sports Discussion Question I have attached the file below. please read the discussion lecture and complete the discussion question which is on the last page. The discussion question is based off first half of Chapter 8. The post must be minimum of 2 paragraphs. The topic is about sports/cultures. Complete the post from a guys perspective.I have also attached Chapter 8 reading Lecture:
For this chapter, we investigate youth and sports. I feel this should be a relatively
interesting chapter, because it will allow most of us to reflect on our own experiences.
When looking at youth sports functionalists may argue that sport participation creates a
high degree of support for societal goals and cultural values, sport participation may
assist in developing self discipline, co-operation, courage, and persistence. Moreover,
they may argue that sports prep children for adult life and promote healthy lifestyles.
Parents often take functionalist perspective and they are usually quite enthusiastic
about their children playing sports.
However, educators, physicians, and psychologists are less stoked on the idea of youth
sports, and may be more likely to take on a conflict perspective. They often argue that
sport may produce excessive psychological and physical demands on youth. The
organized structure of youth sport allows for adults to encroach and even dominate the
world of the young. Youth sports, in some cases, appear to be played for the parents
rather than the kids themselves. Parents may push too hard, which can result in burn
out, injuries, and so on. For example, some of you may remember my story of the girl
trying to skate the mini-ramp while her dad yelled at her. Despite her enormous talent,
she burned out quite quickly dropped out of the activity all together. What could have
been an interesting career, fizzled out almost immediately. Moreover, while it seems
that organized youth sports have always been a part of American culture, they are
actually a relatively new aspect of our social lives. This is especially true for young
women. Women were often excluded from organized sports up until the
1970s (see https://www.npr.org/2018/03/30/597960442/a-little-league-of-her-own-the-first-girl-in-littleleague-baseball).
When examining socialization and sport, we must first look at why kids become involved
in the first place. Often, we see families are a big drive behind our youth sports
participation. Our family’s social status and structure affect which sports we play and
how we play them. Parents often socialized their kids into sports deemed appropriate
for their socio-economic status (i.e. tennis, skiing, golf, and swimming for the upper
classes and baseball, boxing, wrestling, and football for the middle and working
classes). Also, while our family may lead us into certain activities, we see that children
may introduce their parents into activities as well.
Peers also play a significant role in the socialization process. When we hit
adolescences we tend to spend less time with our family and more time with our peers.
If a friend becomes involved in something, we may feel pressure to get involved in it as
well.
Coaches are rarely the initial draw into an activity, but kids may develop a strong bond
with their coaches. This bond may develop because the coach teaches the youth skills
that lead to an identity and self-esteem. If you played competitively, I’d imagine your
coach was a very significant part of your life. Moreover, if any of you are coaches, I
imagine that some of your athletes have played a large role in your life. As a team
manager for a skate team, I can’t even count how many hours I invested in my
team’s lives and their careers in skateboarding. This allowed us to develop rather deep
bonds and even though I quit my job as a team manager 10 years ago and I live 3,000
miles away from home, I still meet up with some of the guys at least once a year.
The mass media can also play a large role in our socialization. Kids are virtually
inundated with sports via the media. Sports video games can also help socialize kids
into the various sports. It may motivate them to try the sport or teach them rudimentary
skills, strategies, and tactics. For example, to my surprise, a younger colleague of mine
explained to me that he started skateboarding because of the Tony Hawk video games.
His experience with the game helped him gain a (superficial) understanding of the
culture and the activity, which he then built on once he began to be an active
skateboarder.
QUESTION:
For today’s discussion, I would like you to describe how you were socialized into your
respective sport, and how your sport may or may not have socialized you into society
(use a functionalist and conflict perspective). Additionally, I would like you to
hypothesize why we see 50% to 70% of youth participants drop out of organized sport
by the age of 13 (page 196).
Finally, I cut a lot out of this introduction in order to keep our discussion on track. Please
make sure you have read and taken notes on the first half of the chapter. I want
everyone to do well on our exam, but if you are going simply off of my introductions, you
will probably won’t do well. I am trying to briefly introduce the chapter to facilitate
discussion, I am not offering a summary of the chapter. Please, E-mail me as soon as
possible if you are worried about the exam.
