—Beth Bass, CEO Women’s Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA)
The 1972 passage of Title IX, the federal law that prohibits sex discrimination in education, was a game changer for women and girls in athletics. In the forty years since the law was enacted, participation in sports—especially of girls and women—has grown dramatically. With that growth have come challenges. In Ice ʼnʼ Go: Score in Sports and Life, Jenny Moshak, celebrated athletic trainer of the legendary Lady Vols basketball team and associate athletic director for sports medicine at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, reflects on the role of sports in society and addresses the high stakes and costs of winning in sports today.
Ice ʼnʼ Go is a culmination of the breadth of knowledge and unique insight from Moshakʼs more than twenty-five years of work in major college sports. In this highly readable new book, she covers social issues, medical concerns, motivational techniques, gender roles and expectations, the impact of sports on our children, and how the body works, heals, and recovers. Though she writes on serious subjects in a serious way, Moshakʼs tone is always upbeat and positive with simple strategies for improving the athletic experience for all, especially kids.
An outstanding athlete herself, she shares lessons learned on her own demanding coast-to-coast bicycle ride across the United States. In sharing her stories, sound advice and fresh ideas, Moshak seeks to do for us what she has always done for the players in her care: to help protect, nurture, and grow the athlete who is in each one of us.
