According to researchers, girls and boys differ in how they approach sports, and therefore benefit from different coaching styles. Often what encourages boys to try harder will discourage girls from trying at all. Unfortunately, girls who dont get the proper motivation they need often stop playing altogether and miss out on the wealth of personal growth that comes with learning new skills and getting in the game.Wilson offers practical suggestions for parents and coaches who want to take action -- everything from skill-building activities and exercises for girls of every age, choosing the proper sport, helping the klutz feel like a jock, and making sports an opportunity for family bonding and fun. Filled with advice on how to get girls off to a great start -- and keep them motivated for the long run -- Sports Her Way is a wonderful resource for adults committed to helping girls succeed in life though succeeding in sports.
