Gr. 5-8. Part of the Get in the Game series, aimed primarily at girls, this volume suggests many practical ways to really enjoy sports and what to expect at the various levels of competition. Besides the fun of participation, there is plenty of emphasis on the discipline, patience, cooperation, health, and confidence that sports engender. The sober advice on balancing sports, academics, and social life are straight from the hip without being preachy. The odds of making college and professional teams are slim and that is made apparent, but at the same time, the book points out that no matter how far you go in your chosen sport; just participating makes you a winner.
