During the term, you should find an organized youth sporting event (must be a competitive game, meet, or match) to attend. The participants in this event should not yet be in junior high school…preferably younger than 12 years old. When dealing with youth sports from a sociological perspective, relationships become the primary focus of attention. As an outsider observing the event, you should take special notice of the topics we’ve covered in class (i.e. parent interaction, the emphasis on competition, etc.), and the following relationships:
• Player – Player (teammates, opponents, on the bench, etc.)
• Coach – Player
• Parents – Players
• Spectators – Players
• Spectators – Coaches
• Spectators – Spectators
• Referees – Players
• Referees – Coaches
• Referees – Spectators
• Coaches – Coaches
While observing, look for the following in the above relationships:
• How often do they interact?
• Who initiates the interaction?
• What is the content of the interaction?
• What is the impact of the interaction on those involved?
• How do players respond to or deal with adult control?
You might also think about the overall phenomenon of youth sports, by considering the following:
• What do players and spectators learn in connection with youth sports?
• Why are the games so important to many people?
• What ideas about masculinity and femininity are highlighted in connection with the sport?
• Do boys/girls attend? What do they do? What do boys/girls do who are not on the field/court? What do players do before, after, and between games?
• What do you think is being learned by the children who are playing? What about the other children in attendance?
• Are there any social dynamics related to social class or race and ethnicity during the event? Is it expensive to play this sport? How is the program and participation funded?
In order to make writing your paper easier, I recommend taking notes during the event which you can refer back to.
After observing the youth sporting event, you should write a 3-4 page paper discussing your observations and reflections on sociological issues within youth sports. As you write the paper, you should follow the below format:
1. Introduction
a. Explain the event you observed. Provide details such as the age, gender, location, sport, etc. of the participants.
b. Provide an introduction and foundation for your observations and reflections. In short, you should provide a “road map” your paper will follow.
2. Observations
a. Discuss what you observed. Be as detailed as possible, giving specific examples and events. Be careful not to over generalize…if you wish to generalize, use specific examples to draw those generalizations.
3. Reflections
a. Discuss your reflections and thoughts about the event. How does what you observed relate back to sociological topics discussed in this course? Did your observations surprise you?
b. Choose at least one of the three theories discussed in Chapter 2 of your text. Then, explain your observations and reflections from that theoretical perspective.
4. Conclusion
a. Provide a brief explanation of what you will take away from this experience.
b. Summarize and conclude your paper.
The Youth Sport Observation Project will be due during Week 6. The rubric below will be utilized in grading the Youth Sport Observation Project:

Labor law requires employers to collectively bargain with employees represented

Labor law requires employers to collectively bargain with employees represented by unions on three mandatory terms: Wages, hours, and conditions of employment. Outside of the three mandatory terms of collective bargaining, employers and employees’ union representatives are free to collectively bargain on other items as they agree. The world of sports provides wide-ranging examples of how the collective bargaining process unfolds. In some instances, it is contentious. In others, it is a smooth, easy process. This Assignment will look at strategies employed by various leagues in the collective bargaining process to determine which side—employers or employees—received the best end of the negotiations. Select one of the following leagues: the MLB, NBA, or NHL. Research that league’s most recent round of collective bargaining with their players’ respective union. Examine the negotiations and identify what each side obtained under the new collective bargaining agreement. Consider which side you believe received the better deal and why. Submit a 1- to 2-page paper in which you evaluate the collective bargaining case you selected. Your paper must contain the following:
A summary of the negotiations including what each side obtained under the new collective bargaining agreement
An evaluation explaining which side obtained the better deal in the agreement and why
Support that includes references to labor law and the collective bargaining process
Cite all references in your paper using APA style.

“Discuss the actual validity and reliability of the measures used in these studies. Also, check APA formatting throughout. It is not consistent.” This was the feedback given from the professor. If you could just create a section for validity and reliability at the end of the paper, that would be perfect. Thank you. If there is any questions, please let me know.
