Thousands of children participate in community sports every year, enjoying recreation time with their peers, getting healthy exercise, and learning a variety of personal and group skills. At the same time, childrens sports are not withoutMoreThousands of children participate in community sports every year, enjoying recreation time with their peers, getting healthy exercise, and learning a variety of personal and group skills. At the same time, childrens sports are not without controversy: aggressive parents live vicariously through their childrens exploits, competitive success is often the focus, and rising costs can limit participation.Bridging anthropology, sport studies, and childhood studies, Fields of Play offers a rich understanding of an area that has, to date, garnered relatively little attention by social scientists.

Based on nearly two decades of ethnographic field research into the dynamics of childrens sporting activities, it provides vibrant and valuable insight into issues of contemporary family and community, as well as the shaping of childhood, youth, and adulthood.
