Fred Bowen’s newest sports book is Go for the Goal! Soccer this time - Josh and his talented travel league soccer teammates are having trouble coming together as a successful team - until he convinces them to try team-building exercises.
Fred’s books always include a bit of sportsmanship and sports history – in this case, the 1999 U.S. Women’[s] World Cup soccer team that also confronted some team-building issues.
Fred has coached youth league baseball, basketball and soccer in Maryland. His kids’ sports column (a good read for grown-ups, too) appears in the KidsPost section of the Washington Post.
