Paper Topic: Burnout in Youth Sports
Paper should be 5 pages in length, plus a Title Page and Reference Page
In the Issue Analysis Paper, you have select a topic, issue or subject relating to sports psychology and now you are asked to analyze the topic in the first half of the paper.
First, identify an important Issue related to sport psychology and describes that issue in detail during the first half of the paper. Then, in the paper’s second half, analyze the issue and suggests solutions. Analysis requires breaking a subject, issue, or event into its constituent elements so that the assumptions or components are made clear and the relationships between them are made explicit.
The paper is not a personal opinion or reflection style paper. As such, it should NOT include personal story or observation sharing, but must analyze the issue; the personal, you or I, must be left out of your thinking and writing. You should write as though your readers are intelligent but not fully informed about the topic.
Your paper must be developed using research material from at least five sources. You may not use your textbook as a source. You may also use the Internet for some of your material as long as you access scholarly resources and not popular media such as Sports Illustrated, Psychology Today, opinion .com sites or blogs, About.com sites or others that do summarizing for readers, abstracts without reading the full article, etc. NO WIKIPEDIA articles may be used for these papers or any other writing assignment in this course.
You must also cite the material within the body of your paper, using the American Psychological Association (APA) format (this is the citation format used within the narrative of your textbook).
For my issues analysis paper I would like to discuss burnout in youth sports. Furthermore, I would like to explore possible sources of stress and possible implications they may pose among young athletes. Many factors such as situational and social demands are put on certain athletes at varying ages that lead to exhaustion, both physically and emotionally, eventually resulting in burning out.
THE FOLLOWING RESOURCES MUST BE UTILIZED THROUGHOUT PAPER. Additional resources may be used as long as they meet the guidelines described above.
