It’s Not about the Bra: Play Hard, Play Fair, and Put the Fun Back Into Competitive Sports



Youth sports aren’t just about fun and games anymore. What should be a pleasurable experience is often marred by poor sportsmanship, trash talking, win-at-all-cost attitudes, and, in the worst cases, violence. But World Cup soccer champion and Olympic gold medalist Brandi Chastain has a solution. In It’s Not About the Bra, Chastain draws on lessons learned in her phenomenal career and in her experience as a parent to illuminate the beautiful game and provide creative answers to the challenges that face young athletes and their parents.

Chastain emphasizes the importance of developing leadership skills, finding (and becoming) role models, and giving back to one’s team and community. She offers a blueprint for kids and parents alike on how to play fair, win (and lose) with grace, and, above all, have a good time doing it.
