The Sports Rules Book offers coaches, players, physical education teachers, youth sport administrators, and sport enthusiasts the information they need to understand and play 64 of today's most popular sports. Each chapter covers a different sport-the sport's origin and history, description of the playing area, useful terminology, equipment needs, and essential rules. Selected sports' coverage also includes officials' signals and rule modifications to help teachers and sport administrators adapt the sport for younger and less-skilled players. This edition contains updated coverage on most major sports and includes 10 new sports: adventure racing, cornhole, bocce, croquet, horseshoes, kung fu, pickleball, surfing, speed climbing, and stand-up paddleboard racing. The chapters are in alphabetical order and contain standardized sections for quick reference. Each chapter is also reviewed and approved by an appropriate governing body or an expert in the sport to ensure accurate and up-to-date information. With understandable and concise rules for 64 sports, The Sports Rules Book is the all-in-one answer book for teaching and playing most of the world's most popular sports.
