    This Game Day series is perfect for young, sports-obsessed fans who, in addition to watching and playing sports, crave the kind of expert knowledge that only an insider would know. A special section in the back of each book is chock-full of even more facts about the sport and its storied history and players.

    Get up close and personal with baseball, basketball, soccer, ice hockey, and more!

    Titles include:


    Breakaway

    It’s game day, and Fred, a women’s soccer team equipment manager, arrives at the arena where he works. Not only do the Dragons have an early match but a new player has just joined the team! There’s gear to check and a lot of prep work to be done before the players arrive. Once the game begins there are even more responsibilities for this equipment manager who has to keep his eye on the ball and the players’ needs. Readers are given a field-side view of the passes, plays, and goals that make up a soccer match—as well as learning about the key rules and regulations of soccer.


    First Pitch

    It’s a beautiful sunny day that’s just right for a baseball game. The announcer arrives at the stadium where she works. There’s lots to do before the game can begin. She’ll share with readers how the players warm up and get ready for the game. She’ll also explain how the fields are prepared, the way the pitcher and catcher decide on what pitches should be thrown, why the white foul lines painted on the grass must be measured perfectly, and all the rules of a major league baseball game. The game begins with the catcher giving the signal for the first pitch. Play ball!


    Jump Shot

    It’s game day, and a basketball referee arrives at the arena where he works. There’s a championship on the line, and he is excited. He visits the players’ locker rooms where the players are getting prepared mentally (learning about their opponents, and their own plays) and physically (stretching and getting taped up). He watches the teams warm up with a series of practice drills with their coaches and trainers and observes the court being primed for the game. The game begins with the narrator tossing up the jump ball at center court. Game on…


    Slap Shot

    It’s game day, and readers of Slap Shot are given a rink-side view of the passes and goals that make up an ice hockey game. Along the way, they’ll get to know all about the history of hockey dating all the way back to Canada in the 1800s!


    Match Point

    Take a behind the scenes look at a tennis match!
