The last quarter century has witnessed great change in the participation and abilities of female athletes. Many myths regarding the inability of women to participate in sport and recreational pursuits are being dispelled. Whereas there is still much to learn about the potential and limitations of female athletes, education concerning that which is already known should be a goal. It is only through education of those caring for female athletes and their families, and education of the athletes themselves, can one hope to have all women pursue and reach their full athletic potential safely.
