We are so excited to reveal the cover for our new book, How To Coach Girls, that I co-authored with Alison Foley, Boston College Women’s Soccer Head Coach!
How To Coach Girls by Alison Foley and Mia Wenjen
Did you know that 70% of all kids quit organized sports by age 13, with girls quitting 6x the rate of boys?
Volunteer parents and experienced coaches alike will find invaluable advice on creating a successful team that motivates girls to stay in sports beyond the middle school years. Twenty-two chapters cover major issues, including how to pick captains, the importance of growth mindset, issues around body image and puberty, as well as the challenges of coaching your own daughter.
In addition, fifteen professional coaches from a range of sports, including former Olympian athletes, give their advice on what girls need from a coach to allow them to flourish in sports, and most importantly, have fun.
