Girls and Sports - Results from Seventeen and WNBA
The results suggest that girls play for exercise, to develop and maintain friendships, compete, and represent their schools. The girls that do not do sports say it is becasue they doubt their athlectic ability, do not have access to needed equipment at their schools, or worry about being perceived as a lesbian by peers. [Seriously?]
The impact of sports on young women is profound - results suggest that the participation in sports helps people develop emotionally and physically, experience the rush of competition and winning and learn lessons about losing -lessons that create future leaders.
