Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is a popular way to ward off aging, but the serious fun and games don't have to end once middle age sets in. This guidebook is geared for men and women seeking the challenge and enjoyment of athletic competition. The book focuses on those sports requiring significant physical exertion and includes team sports such as soccer, softball and basketball and individual sports such as skiing, tennis and swimming. Profiles of each sport identify the national sponsoring organization, regional affiliates, a description of the types of competition available, and a breakdown of the number of competitors by age and gender participating in national championships. A 'How to Get Started' section describes basic skills needed for each sport, equipment required to compete, opportunities for coaching, and suggested books and videos for beginners. The book also features a list of the 2007-2008 national champions in each sport.
