Introduction If anybody in here has a child, hopefully at least one of us will, will you let him/her play sports while they are growing up? If not, hopefully this speech will at least show you some benefits from playing sports as a child. Hopefully the majority of people in
Everyone has a gender. It is something we are born into, and has an impact on every aspect of our lives. It affects how we walk, talk, and act on a daily basis. What truly is gender though? Gender is what defines many facets of our culture, and differentiates the roles people take on as men or women. Today, most countries define gender as the genetic and biological traits we are born with. However, what if someone felt they were supposed to be the opposite gender of the one they were born into? That is precisely the feeling that transgenders have from a young age. The feeling of not belonging in their own body and wanting to be someone else. To make things even harder, what if they were also an athlete? Not only would they feel like they don 't belong in their own body, but the sports they want to play or already play would be affected. With that, this paper will look at and discuss eligibility in sports, equality in the locker room, and self worth both on and off the field for transgender athletes.
While 70% of the NFL players having African-American descent, there’s a difference between journalist and sports reporters, with 80% of the radio and TV broadcasters being White and 9% being Black. These articles, The Experience of Media and Race in the National Football League – An Existential Phenomenological Study (Fisher 2008), Depicting the Quarterback in Black and White: A Content Analysis of College and Professional Football Broadcast Commentary (Billings 2004), and Race and ethnicity in U.S. sports media (Davis & Harris 1998) examined the connections between Black NFL players and experienced media reporters. The data was recorded and studied, and main themes were acknowledged. The athletes report themes of: (1) the players’ view of how media coverage affects the NFL players, (2) the players’ perceptions of media personnel, and (3) the athletes’ perception of black quarterbacks. The study of the experienced media reporters’ meetings uncovers three major themes: (1) perceptions of how the media cover the NFL, (2) interrelationships with NFL players, and (3) playing quarterback in the NFL.

Another interview was conducted with Gannon University’s head Coach Brad Rzyczycki. I conducted an interview with him to get a coaches point of view on the National Football League. Coach Brad Rzyczycki made many interesting points that will help me direct my writing. In accordance to the
players were some of my best friends and they would ask me questions about their game or their stats. The coaches always told the players they were not to question what I said, when it came to game stats. This was important because of a point system our school used. The players lost points for fouls and turnovers and gained points for positive stats or plays. They were not to question what I said in that part of the game. The coaches and players asked my opinion on different things and they always valued what I said. They didn't always go with my view, but it was considered equally with the players' views.

I also believe when communicating you should let your players now that you’re always there for them and they can come to you with whatever they need. You need to let your players know that you are here to motivate them not tear them down. We are here to motivate our players to be the best young men they can be on and off the field. If they act out of line then they will be disciplined. We do not do these things just to do it; they all have a purpose to them. They may not realize it at the moment, but in the long run when they become coaches they
My experience of attending an all male private Catholic school was a choice that played to my strengths, and played a significant role in my desire to attend the USCGA. However, there is one aspect my school that is both explicitly and implicitly discriminatory, its admissions process. Explicitly, it is an all male school and has been since 1930. The administration purports many benefits to a same sex education; however, the homogeneous environment resulting from this policy has mostly fostered a single minded, immature, “locker room talk” culture. The clearest example of this that I can recall is one of my freshman year teachers. Throughout the school year he constantly joked about how he beat his wife while doing and how women
As far as athletes on the field a great many lessons are often learned there and one of the biggest lessons is sportsmanship. For any sports played teamwork is often times essential for winning. It also allows for a person to become more confident in their own abilities allowing them to become more proud and not ashamed of what they can or cannot do. It allows players to build bonds among their teammates and while this maybe be one of the main creators of the “jocks hang out with jocks” stereotype it is only because athletes feel a connection to someone that is going through the same time of training and emotions that sports tend to create. Sportsmanship teaches a person the value of working together in groups and allows the player to learn how to adjust to situations that he or she may not agree with. The work ethic sportsmanship creates is also carried off the field as well into the school and more importantly the working environment, because we all know that in our lifetimes we are going to have to work with someone that we do not like or agree with. And having the ability to be able to work through a problem which sportsmanship can do allows for an easier job experience.
