Chapter 5 _ Coaching Diverse Athletes White men can’t [JUMP ] Sometimes these [STERROTYPES ] have some basis in fact, but they are usually [GROSS ] overgeneralizations; stereotypes become [PREJUDICES ] when they are negative [OPINIONS ] about a group of people that result in [BIGOTRY ] toward them; as a coach, you must guard against [UNFOUNDED ] stereotypes and prejudices that may result in [TREATING ] your athletes unfairly; it is a real challenge to put aside [PREJUDICES ] when selecting the members of your team or your [ STARTING ] lineup, or assigning players to positions; it is a [CHALLANGE ] because you come to coaching with your [CULTURAL ] heritage, and how you coach is inevitably affected by your culture For example, you may have a [CULTURAL ] heritage that emphasizes a [SOLID ] work ethic encompassing hard work, [DEDICATION ] , and seriousness – what some call [PROTESTANT ] work ethic; your athletes also come to your team with their personal [CULTURAL ] backgrounds that influence their [PERCEPTION ] of you, their teammates, and the sport itself; sometimes the [CULTURE ] of the coach and the cultures of some players clash over [COMMUNICATION ] style, how players respond to [MISTAKES ] and criticism, aggressiveness or [ASSERTIVENESS ] , and dedication to the sport A common cultural [DIFFERENCE ] among racial and ethnic groups is how [SERIOUS ] participants seem to be when playing sports; a coach with a serious [DEMEANOR ] will have difficulty understanding an athlete who might be just as committed to [ACHIEVEMENT ] in the sport but does not display the [SERIOUSNESS ] considered so important by the coach; some coaches mistakenly think that players are [DEFYING ] them when they do not respond according to the [EXPECTATIONS ] of the coaches – expectations based on their [CULTURAL ] heritage – instead of recognizing that players may have [DIFFERENT ] views based on their own cultural heritages; the best way to avoid these [CULTURAL ] clashes is to learn more about the [CULTURAL ] heritages of your players so you can better understand their [ATTITUDES ] and beliefs Expectations Another more [INSIDIOUS ] form of prejudice can occur in the form of holding [NEGATIVE ] expectations of certain players based on their [CULTURAL ] heritages; most of us know that [MINORITIES ] and low-income youths have performed less well in [SCHOOLS ] than others, but many do not know that a [MAJOR ] reason is that teachers expect [LESS ] from them; instead, many AL349 Page 9 Principles of Coaching
