Here is a terrific report entitled The Sport Behavior of Youth, Parents, and Coaches; The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly written by David Light Shields and Brenda Light Bredemeier from the University of Missouri, St. Louis, Nicole M. LaVoi, University of Minnesota and F. Clark Power from University of Notre Dame. Not surprisingly, you’ll find there are some glaring ethical problems in American youth sports – from cheating to taunting to disrespect – but the news isn’t all bad.
