About this product
- DescriptionFoot Notes: Telling Stories of Girls' Soccer reflects on 35 years coaching girls' and women's soccer. The book is a bit of memoir, a bit of guidebook, a smattering of literary commentary, a dose of stalgia and confessional, sprinkled with some sports journalism. Foot Notes is a tribute to soccer players and coaches, an appreciation of the game itself, its endemic and unticed presence, and the grass and gravel it's played upon. It's a book about teaching and learning from players and teams. Mostly it's a love story, a gift to your granddaughters. Foot Notes urges attentive listening to other's stories as it shapes, shares, and cherishes stories of girls in soccer. In this year when Canada hosts the Women's World Cup, join Laurie Ricou in his celebration of the beautiful game.
