“Sports Bullying” –The act of making a person feel less than worthy in any sport by allowing the seperation of class between team levels.
*This kind of bullying goes unnoticed and is said to be thrown under the rug for the sake of sports reputation.*
” I have 3 teenagers, 2 sons and a daughter who love sports and are athletic in their own sport of choice. What I have seen over the years is that, people don’t play the game like they used to with team support. It is very hard to be apart of a team when there are so many negative factors that stand in the way of helping those who want to become athletes succeed.”
“I have witnessed first hand how the “Politics” of sports begins even at a young age. When children try out for little league or as far as high school with JV and Varsity….why is it that people try so hard at a sport to only get criticised and told you are less of a player because you are not the best.”
“I will give you an example: The term Junior Varsity and Varsity refer to amateurs and experts, right? But what happened to everyone has to “crawl before they walk philosophy”. If a person is learning a sport and trying to become an expert at it…don’t they need encouragement and praise instead of “You suck” or “You are awful” because the last time I checked, coaches were teachers not dictators. If a person makes a mistake you dont critize them for it, you teach them the right way of doing it for the next time. Also, when teams are formed for the same school, the teams are not supposed to be seperated, they are all working for the same school. No one team is more important than the other.”
“Something that needs to change is a learning team being classified as unimportant just because they are new. Everyone deserves an award no matter what sport they are doing because it takes courage and strength to go out there and be in front of a crowd. If one team is scoring points and winning and the other is not, we should still support one another as one team with encouagement not bullying.”
*If you see signs of sports bullying report it immediately!!*
“Last night when I was at my daughters softball game & I noticed that the opposite team had their Varsity cheering the JV of the same school while our Varsity was at the game and didn’t support their team at all. That needs to stop”.🛑
