Abstract:

ABSTRACT: The "soccer boom" has spread to women's inter-collegiate athletics. A major impetus to the growth of soccer occurred when the Brazilian soccer star, Pele, entered the American consciousness. He helped to promote the sport in the North American Soccer League by displaying his talent while playing on the New York Cosmos soccer team. Gradually, the popularity of soccer spread to many different age groups and levels of sport. Girls' soccer began in town leagues and the United States' population began to recognize female soccer. Sheldon (1983) reported the following: Recent figures indicate a 29 percent increase in NCAA member institutions that sponsor women's intercollegiate varsity soccer. That is the largest percentage increase in the sponsorship of any NCAA women's sport since the transition from the Association for Intercollegiate Athletics for Women to the NCAA. (p. 9) Research, or actually information, concerning women's soccer has begun to accumulate. The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) now provides data related to the results of games played intercollegiately. However, information in the form of literature on the development of women's soccer is difficult to obtain. Few articles have been written concerning women's soccer. There has been limited related research in this area. The major interest of this investigator was to document the development of women's intercollegiate soccer in New England. The tracing of soccer from developmental stages to its becoming a varsity sport was attempted. Every effort has been made to document this development through a search of literature that was available, but information about the early development of women's soccer had to be obtained, for the most part, through personal interviews.
