Do you know who invented basketball? Who won the first NBA championship? When did the WNBA start? Find the answers to these questions and more in this jam-packed title. Fascinating fact boxes and clearly written text chronicle the historic triumphs and challenges of a favorite American sport thats now played worldwide.

Ruling the Court focuses on championship play, including March Madness and the Paralympic Games. Women and girls share the limelight; a girls' basketball team huddled round their coach graces the cover of Full Court Press. Interspersed with photos are numerous info boxes.

Even amongst the most elite performers, certain athletes stand out as a cut above the rest, able to outperform in clutch, game-deciding moments. These athletes prove that raw athletic ability doesn't necessarily translate to a superior on-field experience-it's the mental game that matters most. Sports participation-from the recreational to the collegiate Division I level-is at an all-time high. While the caliber of their game may differ, athletes at every level have one thing in common: they want to excel. In The Champion's Mind, sports psychologist Jim Afremow, PhD, LPC, now offers the same advice he uses with Olympians, Heisman Trophy winners, and professional athletes, including: . Tips and techniques based on high-performance psychology research, such as how to get in a "zone," thrive on a team, and stay humble . How to progress within a sport and sustain excellence long-term . Customizable pre-performance routines to hit full power when the gun goes off or the puck is dropped The Champion's Mind distills actionable advice into clear and concise steps for athletes looking to find confidence, concentration, and mental preparedness-the mental edge that sets champions apart.

« Au début des années 1900, les médecins interdisaient aux filles de faire du sport. Ils prétendaient que c'était dangereux pour leur corps. Cela paraît tellement absurde aujourd'hui, alors qu'on encourage les jeunes à bouger tous les jours pour rester en santé. Étaient-ils certains de ce qu'ils affirmaient ou avaient-ils peur que les femmes soient meilleures que les hommes? Chose certaine, ce la n'a pas empêché des jeunes filles dégourdies d'ignorer les préjugés et de foncer pour faire ce qu'elles aimaient. D'ailleurs, ces filles ont connu des parcours exceptionnels et elles sont devenues des modèles pour des milliers de femmes partout dans le monde. »

Every year, the NFL, EFL, NCAA, and CFL have bowl games to determine a champion. This exciting book explores historic moments in championship football and the top teams that have played in these amazing games. From School Library Journal: Gr 4–6—A surprising amount of topics are covered in this series about American-style football. Field touches on the basics of the game, with tips for readers looking to hone their football skills. Championships focuses on the history of the NCAA, NFL, CFL (Canadian Football League), and EFAF (European Federation of American Football) and their separate championships. Gridiron Greats and Touchdown illustrate the sport through its stars and history, respectively. Some oversimplifications gloss over the finer details (for instance, Field says penalties can be up to 15 yards but they can be more in the case of a pass interference call). VERDICT Not a blowout winner, but worthwhile if your football collection has a losing record. "About this title" may belong to another edition of this title.
