My passion is to coach kids and teach them what I have learned. The other ways that Kinesiology can lead me is to be an Athletic trainer, massage therapist, sports management, strength coach, and director of sports programs. These are some of the fields I would like to follow in my career. In becoming a coach for a higher-level school I would be able to gain so much knowledge by returning to school. I might have limited knowledge about the sports that I possess, but I feel that I could learn so much more.

Why you should try to get todays youth in sports Hi I’m marty McNally I’m here to persuade you of the importance of getting kids to play organized sports. If you get your kids to start out playing sports when they are of age they will learn important life skills such as leadership roles how to work as a team and how to lose, they will become more effective in school and in social situations and they will strengthen there muscle and bones and continue to do so as they grow. Not only will they have these set of skills it is something they will enjoy if they continue with the team as they grow It seems like today’s youth is more interested in playing video games rather than going outside to play sports with there friends or with a team. Sports provide the body with a complete exercise and at the same time its entertainment. Those who play sports will have a more positive self-esteem over those who don’t.
Another thing that I was interested in observing was if the development of the children matches how the designated age group was described in the book. I want to see if the book has a good description of how children this age developed both physically and cognitively. The reason I choose to do my observation on this population was one because I wanted an excuse to visit my coach and I knew it would be easy to schedule a time with him and two because I have been back and forth on whether or not I want to become a physical education teacher and I thought this would be a great opportunity for me to see if I would really enjoy that career or not. I had a chance to talk to my coach about cognitive development and he surprisingly gave me some very good insight. He told me about ways that the teacher can help to encourage positive and healthy cognitive development in the adolescents.
(QDCA 2012) Formative is a continual form of assessment such as assignments, individual or group projects, observation and even peer and self-assessment. Geoff Petty (2009) believes assessment can inspire and motivate students, thus providing them and us with feedback that is seen as essential in prompting co rrective help. When using Formative assessment, the importance is not the score the student achieves, but what the student has learnt, thus allowing the teacher to determine what to teach next whilst working towards a final summative assessment. (Please refer to Appendix 3 : Sample Scheme of Work for BTEC Sport that includes examples of formative assessments during each class session). When setting assessments, we have to take differentiation into account and set different types of assessments so as not to disadvantage a section of the class.
The reason why I want to join Year Up is that I feel that it will give me the guidance I need to further my self for the future. I believe that Year Up is a good program for me and my peers.

To achieve there personal goals and to be confident in furthering there education. I am a good candidate for Year Up because I have many personal values that will contribute to the Year Up program.
Inch by Inch: Tony D'Amato's Leadership By: Kevin Agyei-Lamptey Coaching can be defined as a strategic technique wherein a coach instructs, counsels, and tutors his or her athletes in how to improve athletic performance. Effective coaching yields more than improved performance; it also increases personal satisfaction, inspires a commitment to excellence, and fosters the coach's development as a leader. A coaches job extendeds beyond the field/court, a coach can be seen as or play the role of a parental figure. A coach must challenge their athletes to strive to receive maximum potential from an individual aspect or within the team concept. Coaches may have different responsibilities they must display to be considered an effective coach; however, it is extremely important that coaches understand their number one responsibility is to be a leader.
Jared Barr Mr. Drosche Professional Internship 15 April 2011 “A Mentor Can Help You Succeed In Your First Job” The article that I chose for my second professional report, talks about how important it is to have a mentor help guide you through struggles. It talks about how a mentor is more than just a coach; they are someone who has expertise. They can also listen effectively, challenge you to be all you can be, and provide you with a supportive and trusting environment where you can share the issues you’re confronting both personally and professionally. Questions for the mentor would be: who are you, what do you do now, and why do you want to do this? The article was very interesting to me because it mentions good qualities that a good mentor should have.
They want to be just like them, because of this, in many cases children will follow their actions blindly out of admiration for the athlete. Secondly, the onus is on the professional athletes to strive to be a role model for their younger fans because children are socialized into looking at sports as a way to gain key attributes. This is illustrated by John R. Gerdy in his book “Sports in School, the future of an institution”. It states “Athletic programs, if conducted in a way that emphasizes the value of the process (participation) as opposed to the outcome (winning), can instil in participants an appreciation for hard work, honesty, teamwork, and discipline.” Professional athletes are expected to demonstrate high levels of commitment and dedication, as well as integrity in their respective sport not only for themselves and their team, but so that there is a good example in which their young fans can follow and possibly shape the way they play their sport of interest. Furthermore, with the power and fame that is associated with
Introduction A coaching philosophy is based on beliefs and values held by the coach that influences how he coaches (Cassidy, Potrac & Jones, 2004). My coaching philosophy is very basic and simple: I chose to coach because of my passion and enthusiasm for sports as well as my zeal in working with children and young adults in order to create for them fun, socialising and learning environment in which they can at the same time study ethics and moral standards. Success to me is not by winning medals, trophies and so on, however I see striving and putting maximum effort to win more important than winning (Kidman & Hanrahan, 2011). I consider fair play very important since it creates friendly and pleasant environment and I, I believe it is extremely important that I become a good role model in order to set a good example for them to follow. Finally I believe motivation is important.
