Based on his 19 years teaching physical education and coaching youth sports, Bailey assembles 158 games tested and approved by children that help build the skills they will use in more formal sports. Arranging them by increasing age group with sports such as football and basketball, he identifies skills, equipment, setup, how to play, and scoring. The play is also illustrated with line drawings.

This is a great book if you're looking for sport lead-up games. Guy Bailey has put together an excellent collection of lead-up games that is one of the most comprehensive in print.

After the initial chapter which explains the role of sport lead-up games, you'll find chapters on games for football, soccer, lacrosse, basketball, hockey, volleyball, badminton, tennis, track, softball, golf, and bowling. Each game description includes the objective, equipment, setup, and procedure to play. There's also an illustration for each game to help you visualize its setup. What's nice is that the games are ready to play, with little or no adaptation.

This is a fantastic book to add to your book shelf. Overall, we rate this book "very good." You will definitely find games in this book that you can use in your programs.
