In the past, women were held back from participation in sports not only because of psychological and cultural barriers, but because women athletes were never quite taken seriously. When Title IX of the Education Act of 1972 came onto the fields and courts, girls' sports then have made a serious approach at being a part of all school extracurricular activities. With the increasing number of girls programs there is definitely a need for experienced and qualified coaches to take on the responsibility of not only developing the athletes, but constructing well established programs. To initiate new programs into the schools, the coach builds from the bottom and sets the foundation. This handbook can be useful to coaches, teachers or parents who take on the responsibility of starting any new secondary softball program.
