If I just became a coach of a basketball team and wanted to enhance my teams social support, I would provide group social events for staff, athletes, and assistant coaches to allow them to step out of their typical roles. I would also arrange small-group meetings in which athletes discuss dealing with pressure, preparing for competition, and other issues. b. Ways to increase proximity If I just became a coach of a basketball team and wanted to increase the proximity of my team, I would do fund-raisers such as a Hot Dog Stand or Pizza Night and bus or car trips. c. Ways to increase group distinctiveness If I just became a coach of a basketball team and wanted to increase my team’s distinctiveness, I would create special team uniforms and create a special team motto. d. Ways to create a perception of fairness If I just became a coach of a basketball team and wanted to create a perception of fairness in my team, I would always be honest, open, and fair with all my athletes. e. Ways to increase similarity If I just became a coach of a basketball team and wanted to increase my team’s similarity, I would share group performance goals, lay out the expectations for individual behavior, and clarify every athlete’s role in the team. I would also make them practice together. From Weinberg, R.S., and D. Gould. 2011. Foundations of Sport & Exercise Psychology Online Study Guide, 5E (Champaign, IL: Human Kinetics). 1
