Red-headed people have [ TEMPERS ] Jews are wealthy but [ FRUGAL ] Football players are [ DUMB ] Germans are [ STUBBORN ] Short people have an [ INFERIORITY ] complex Female athletes are [ LESBIANS ] Latinos are great [ LOVERS ] Blacks have [ RHYTHM ] White men can’t [ JUMP ] Sometimes these [ STEROTYPES ] 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 [ CHALLENGE ] 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 AL349 Page 8 Principles of Coaching
