The Play Like a Pro series covers the basics of playing six popular professional team sports: baseball, basketball, football, hockey, lacrosse, and soccer. Each title covers one sport in detail, from getting started to life as a pro and what pros do once they retire. Readers learn about the drive, dedication, preparation, hard work, skills, choices, and sacrifices involved in becoming a top athlete. They also learn more about the sports they love. Pro lacrosse players donХt earn big salaries. They donХt become famous. Most have day jobs to earn a living. So why do they do it? Because they love the game. This book is a frank and fascinating look at what it takes to play pro lacrosse, from starting young to building skills, training hard, and being fit and agile on the field. Chapters cover the history of the game, a day in the life of a pro lacrosse player, women and girls in lacrosse (itХs not just a menХs sport), and playing like a champion. Each chapter features attentiongrabbing photos and examples from the lives of wellknown athletes. A Fun Facts section includes more facts, plus anecdotes and lore unique to the fastest game on two feet.
