Some Sports Managers’ Views about Values Education through Sports

Velittin Balci, Övünç Erdeveciler


The indirect aim of this study is to ensure that sports and participation in sports are seen as new tools for values education. From this indirect goal, it was aimed to analyse the views of some Amateur Sports Club managers and supporters who were supposed to directly contribute to sports and the athletes about values education. The study was planned based on qualitative interview technique. In thematic framework of education values, questions were prepared in the form of semi-structured questionnaire appropriate for qualitative interview technique, and participants in the study were asked to answer these questions voluntarily. The working group formed a total of 41 people consisting of the presidents and vice-chairmen of some Amateur Sports Clubs operating in Ankara. In the findings of interviews made with the mentioned method; it has been observed that managers have prominent values such as ‘prestige’, ’tolerance’, ‘communication’, ‘love’, ‘sharing’, ‘diligence’, ‘health’, and ‘growing healthy people’. However, in the process of transferring these values to the people they work with, the managers who participated in the study came to the conclusion that their own awareness did not occur sufficiently.

As a result, it can be said that there is no single meaning of personal awareness about values education, and some methods and paradigms have to be passed on concerning these universal values’ transfer to co-workers. Perhaps getting out of the ordinary for sports managers is like self-renew and likely to change the order of priorities.
