You’ve always coached your teams/athletes to play fair. However, there will always be those who don’t play sport in the right spirit and look to gain an advantage any way they can. What do you do if you come up against opponents who don’t play fair and cheat?
I’m interested to know if you have experienced such a situation (at whatever level you coach at).
How did you handle it?
What advice would you give to coaches faced with the same situation?
Look forward to reading about your experiences
Interesting one Rob especially for young players, athletes. I have seen this in an actual basketball competition where players from another team wasn't playing by the rules and the coach from the other team was going crazy on court at the referee this situation wasn't resolved.
When ever I coach I have always made sure that players, athletes understand the rules and what the consequences of cheating can lead to especially if your trying to win a medal for yourself or your team. I have coached many team games were players have cheated however I have taken points away or disqualified a team and given extra points to teams that don't cheat, for me this has worked well and teams work harder at getting points back by not cheating.
