Code of Ethics Assignment
In your final assignment, you will create a MS PowerPoint presentation to be displayed to individuals who are
employed by an athletic facility for training and rehabilitating athletes as well as coaches. For examples, an
athletic facility’s name could be: City Gym, County Fitness Center, Cove’s Sports Facility. It is essential for
employees (e.g., owner) to create a code of ethics for this athletic facility (i.e., organization) as a whole, as well
as the code of ethics for three (3) departments (i.e., see list of six presented in next paragraph) within the
organization. These codes of ethics will be the foundation upon which the athletic facility operates (i.e.,
conducts business). Please be sure the codes of ethics developed for this presentation (i.e., assignment) are
original. Avoid presenting codes of ethics directly quoted from any existing organization.
This athletic facility provides consumers (i.e., athletes and coaches) access to the following departments (i.e.,
areas): 1. physical fitness (e.g., weights, cardio), 2. physical injury rehabilitation, 3. athletic training, 4. nutrition,
5. community outreach, and 6. mental toughness (i.e. mental training – sport psychology). In your final project
(i.e., Week 8 assignment), you will be creating:
I. code of ethics for their organization (i.e., athletic facility) as a whole, as well as
II. the code of ethics for three (3) of the six (6) aforementioned departments within the organization.
The completed PowerPoint presentation should contain at least 10 slides, not including the title and reference
slide. Be sure to provide an explanation of your code of ethics, including the importance of having a code of
ethics for the athletic facility (i.e., athletes and coaches). This information should be presented in the NOTES
section of the MS PowerPoint presentation and NOT included on the actual slides. Information regarding
NOTES is presented below. The final MS PowerPoint presentation should include:
Table of Contents
Athletic Facility’s Description (see Week 3 Assignment – use information from this assignment, if presented
correctly. – Please review Week 3 Assignment’s comments/feedback submitted with a student’s grade). – You
are employed (e.g., owner, employee) with the athletic facility.
Personal Biography (see Week 3 Assignment – use information from this assignment, if presented correctly. –
Please review Week 3 Assignment’s comments/feedback submitted with a student’s grade). All slides for this
assignment should be written in the third person and should not include words like “I” or “My.”
Code of ethics for their organization (i.e., athletic facility) as a whole. You may present several slides in order to
provide pertinent information to your audience.
The code of ethics for three (3) of the six (6) aforementioned departments (see list provided above) within the
organization. Present each department’s code of ethics on a separate slide. Include at least three (3) code of
ethics (i.e., rules and policies that govern) for each department. You may present several slides in order to
provide pertinent information to your audience.
In addition, the completed presentation needs to include at least one video (e.g., YouTube) that covers the
importance of having a code of ethics and/or the role of ethics in sports. When identifying the video in the
presentation, just insert the web link on the slide. APUS has size restrictions on uploads, and incorporating the
video into the presentation will often make the PowerPoint file too large.
Please be sure to review the PowerPoint do’s and dont’s document that is attached. Remember, the
PowerPoint presentation must include a Notes section. The Notes section should be the script you will use for
your slides within the final PowerPoint presentation such that if you were unable to make the presentation,
someone else could make the presentation by reading what you’ve written in the NOTES section. Notes are
placed on the same slide (i.e., beneath) information being presented pertaining to a specific area of the final
presentation. See “Click to add notes” at bottom of slide – notes will be placed in this area. Suggestion – use
PowerPoint “help” to review instructions for inserting “notes” using your specific version of PowerPoint. If Notes
are not included within the same slide, a 15-point deduction will be assessed prior to reviewing a student’s
Here is an example.
A minimum of five (5) references should be displayed in APA format. In addition, all references should be cited
either on your slides or in the Notes section.
Please submit your assignment as an attachment (in an MS PPT ppt. or MS PPT pptx. file format). Identify this
MS PowerPoint file’s title as “Your Last Name Week 8 Assignment.” For example, the MS PPT file would be
titled: Baldwin Week 8 Assignment. Information regarding American Psychological Association (APA) format is
presented here. Also, a suggestion – visit the APUS Library to review Writing@APUS. Avoid typing your entire
assignment in the text box provided within each assignment.
Suggestion – please review “Student Handbook” for policies concerning Plagiarism.
