Excerpt

As the editorship of Individual Sports for Women changes, I wish to pay tribute to Dorothy S. Ainsworth, who has devoted her professional years to the furtherance of girls' and women's sports not only in the United States but throughout the world. This book is but one bit of evidence of her efforts. The, International Association of Physical Education, and, Sports, for, Girls and Women flourishes today "because of her leadership and support. The profession of physical education owes Miss Ainsworth a great debt for the time and tremendous energy that she has so willingly devoted to these and numerous other professional projects at home and abroad. It is with real gratitude for her countless contributions that this edition has been dedicated to her.

This Fifth Edition introduces two new authors. Carol Berendsen has written a completely new chapter on tennis. Miss Berendsen is a young woman with an excellent background in both tennis and swimming and her approach to the teaching of sports is focused upon the problems involved in movement tasks and their solution.

The approach to the chapter on archery, written by Marcella Woods, is refreshingly different. The scope of her coverage of this sport is very broad and teachers of archery will find many stimulating ideas with which to enrich their instruction of this activity. Dr. Woods is a certified Advanced Archery Instructor of the American Archery Council and has taught extensively in the Lifetime Sports Education Program clinics.

Major changes and additions will be found in most of the other chapters. Riding, although written by the same author, Jean Campbell Tugman, is an entirely new chapter. Current ideas on learning and teaching, as well as the principles that underlie techniques, have been considered in the changes that have been made throughout the book. It is hoped that this approach will make the material of even greater value than that in the previous editions and that both those involved in planning movement experiences for young people and those involved in the learning process will find much that will be of interest and help.
