The approach to ethics in the field of physical education and sports is related to education and school, being very important at every national and transnational level. The different decision-makers in the differently organized countries of the European Union need a reference so that they can have a complete picture of this important issue.

Ethics is the philosophical discipline that aims to present a justification or a moral assessment of different rules, motivations, intentions, beliefs or activities. The assessment and the formulated standards are applied to the procedures in relation to other persons and to the person himself. The main purpose of ethics is to increase the level of morality and therefore the aspiration to eliminate a variety of negative behaviors. All moral principles must be communicated from an early age by both parents and educational institutions. Schools should pay more attention, in particular, to developing appropriate attitudes among children and young people. The formation of ethical standards in the field of physical education and sports is very important because observing these standards will determine a series of very important aspects, such as: What will our sports world look like? What will be the further development of the sport? How will we see issues such as freedom, happiness, quality of life, leisure, etc. What will be man's relation to material goods and to all social phenomena? All of these issues and more depend largely on us and the individual's behaviour.
