Health and Body resources for bringing ethics in sport to the youthin in your community

What impact do performance enhancing substances have on the body? In particular, the growing bodies of teens in middle and high school?

Did you know:

  • In children that have not yet reached maturity, steroid use can disrupt or prematurely initiate puberty.
  • Anabolic steroids can also stunt growth by prematurely causing the long bones to stop growing.
  • Stimulants and other risky diet practices represent alarming and dangerous consequences.
These outcomes should be understood by teens who are beginning to make their own choices and you can help. Learning more about the positive effects of health and nutrition and the sheer joy of clean competition can make a difference in the lives of your students.

There are also times when no matter what decision you make, it seems like the wrong one. This can be especially true in sports. How can you be sure you are making the best decisions? This ethics guide is filled with activities to help one learn how to apply ethical concepts and decision-making skills to one's own life.
