Summary

Brand new for Fall 1999, each Sport Success book offers an inspiring look at successful female athletes and tells how they battled against the odds to achieve success. These intensely readable books speak directly to young women, preteens and older. They describe a sport and present profiles of successful female athletes who have become role models. The books also encourage girls to participate in athletics as a way of having fun and developing the habit of high achievement that extends to all aspects of their lives. An important feature in each book is the story of each sport -- its origins, women's early involvement, and ground rules, as well as resources for playing and actively promoting the sport among women.

Among the rising stars on the American women's soccer scene are Michelle Akers, Mia Hamm, Brianna Scurry, and Julie Foudy. They're profiled in this volume with many more women soccer stars.
