As controversial and politically charged as any topic in middle schools today, sports for young adolescents is at a crisis state. Written by two long-standing middle school advocates and sports experts, this book provides research, insights, and recommendations on all aspects of the sports experience. Middle level sports and the middle school concept, competitive sports issues, developmentally responsive programs, the role of parents, and coaching are thoroughly discussed.
