There's lots of information here for parents, coaches, physical education teachers, and athletes of any age. The site provides information on the history of and how to play more than 100 sports, from cycling to kick boxing and sailing to wrestling. Visitors can improve their playing or coaching skills by using the tips and animated lessons on baseball, basketball, football, hockey, soccer, and softball. A dozen interactive online games are available as well as printable instructions for backyard games. Parents and coaches will find articles on topics such as player psychology, positive coaching, and positive parenting. Included are sports cartoons, free sports screen savers and wallpaper, and sports news.
