Welch Suggs

Book Description | Table of Contents
Introduction [HTML] or [PDF format]


"As someone who has coached girls and women at many different levels, I've seen the ways that Title IX has changed the landscape of athletics. A Place on the Team provides an engrossing and thorough look at how this legislation has affected and continues to shape women's sports."--Sylvia Hatchell, Head Coach, University of North Carolina Women's Basketball

"A Place On The Team is the definitive book on Title IX and will be required reading for every person--certainly for every coach, athletics department official, and university administrator--interested in the topic. Its presentation of the history is clear, cogent, and exhaustive."--Murray Sperber, Indiana University

"This book gathers in one place all the important information on historical, philosophical and legal aspects of women's sports. It enlivens this with interviews with the major players in the field and with real life stories that bring the major issues home to the reader. What's more, it recognizes the difficulties women's sports programs will continue to face as the cost of providing intercollegiate athletics rises."--Elsa Kircher Cole, General Counsel, National Collegiate Athletic Association
