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. Soccer is the world's most popular sport. Some pro players are international celebrities. This book is a frank and fascinating look at what it takes to play pro soccer, from starting young to playing in community leagues, joining traveling teams, college play, and being fit and agile on the field. Chapters cover the history of the game, a day in the life of a pro hockey player, women in soccer (it's not just a men's sport), and playing overseas. 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 beautiful game.
