Publisher's Summary

Written by Dan Blank, Everything Your Coach Never Told You Because You’re a Girl is one of the most inspirational stories ever written for the female athlete. Coaches and teams of all sports – from soccer to golf to equestrian – have embraced this book as the foundation for a new brand of female competitor.

Everything Your Coach Never Told You isn’t a soccer book, it’s a life book filled with competitive lessons that most girls never get the chance to hear. The edgy and passionate voice of Don Bratschie makes this audio-book jump to life with stories of a small-college soccer team that refused to conform to the warm and fuzzy image of female athletes. Listeners will join their remarkable journey from doormat to champions and feel as if they are right there in the locker room on game day, listening to a coach driving them forward into battle.

Not just for female soccer players

First off, this book is about competition. Yes, the author bases the book around his experiences as a college women's soccer coach, but lessons apply to all athletes, male and female, no matter the sport.
Secondly, this is a motivational book--about winning and defining what winning is worth to you. Each chapter is a short easy to digest segment with message illustrated by examples from his experience but also from wide world of sports. Les Brown, Vince Lombardi, Ross Perot, and Zig Zigler rolled into one for the athlete.
Definitely pick this up.

Solid Facts by a strong coach

I love his books. I have read others, but got this one on audio. He gives excellent advice which I pass on to my daughter (I need to get a book on how to get your daughter to listen).

Brutaly honest book about winning

Would you listen to Everything Your Coach Never Told You Because You're a Girl again? Why?

Yes, definitely. Brutaly honest book about winning in sports. It's meant for teenage female athletes but is equally beneficial for parents, coaches and athletes in general.

Every player and parent should listen and own these principles and views

Thank you Dan Blank for saying what many of us feel. It is ok to win and those who win deserve it through their efforts. This is not a watered down participation trophy...these lessons are life lessons for long past when the playing days end!

inspirational

What did you love best about Everything Your Coach Never Told You Because You're a Girl?

is a good inspiration read. after listening to this book before my pickup game, I got inspired to win. and had one of the best games I've had in a while, and played well for 3 hours in pickup setting, like never before. So it's good for "mental training". but the title is a bit misleading and is just a "hook". I listened to his other audibooks about soccer IQ and they were very informative in a technical sense but not as inspiring. and his attitude the soccer IQ books was appalling: condescending and arrogant. in this book I actually appreciated him as a person and coach

Great motivational book

My 11 year old and I enjoyed listening to this book. It applies to more than soccer and sports. It is about accountability and working for what you want, something the younger generations seem to miss out on.

Great soccer book!

Heart, hustle & desire wins over talent. Coach drives urgency for the players.
