Overview

With all of the pressures and distractions young people face, student-athletes have to focus their energies if they want to be the best that they can be. Michele Smith's Book of Good Softball Cheer will help girls achieve their goals on the softball field and in life. The book illustrates specific drills athletes can use to sharpen their softball skills, but it also includes information about important intangible skills such as leadership, proper attitude and perseverance.

Michele Smith's Book of Good Softball Cheer can guide young athletes through tough situations that occur in youth sports: Should an athlete play one sport all year long or diversify her activities? How should an athlete deal with a coach she doesn't like? How can she make herself an invaluable part of the team even if she isn't the best natural athlete on the field? How can an athlete deal with setbacks?

Michele Smith uses examples from her own life to illustrate how fun and hard work can go hand-in-hand to develop happy, well-balanced athletes. Michele Smith's Book of Good Softball Cheer will inspire young athletes to give their best on the field, do their best in the classroom and be their best in life.
