Description:
Sport has held a valued place in society down through the ages. Socialisation is the process whereby a person acquires a social identity, learns appropriate behaviour and conforms to expectations held by members of the group to which s(he belongs or aspires to belong. The importance of sport in socialisation has long been recognised. The role of sport in modern society has become increasingly more significant in the social and cultural life of many countries. Ireland stands proud amongst sports-loving nations of the world. Sport for children and young people has never been of greater importance than it is today, with all of the pressures and distractions (many less than healthy) calling on the minds and emotions of children from an early age. Apart from its important role. in socialisation, sport answers many needs of todays children and young people, from healthy exercise to stress reduction, from the thrill of achievement to the enhancement of self-confidence and self-esteem. The contribution of sports leaders, who voluntarily give of their time to provide such experiences for children, is invaluable. Without them children's sport could not flourish. This unique relationship, whereby adults and young people voluntarily come together to learn and to share values, deserves all the support and protection that can be provided. This Code of Ethics and Good Practice is aimed at helping to provide such support and protection. The role of teachers, at both primary and post-primary levels in the development and success of Irish children's sport is widely appreciated. Teachers work within the guidelines provided by their own schools and organisations, but the Code should be of supplementary benefit to them.
