        A look at the growing popularity of women's sports in the US and the stars that have made them famous. The growth of women's organized sports in the 20-21st century was due to their inclusion in the Olympics in the 1920s. It was a slow process, but through the decades there were a few standouts that today are largely unknown. The Olympics was then and is now the biggest stage for women athletes but Title IX encouraged the development of successful professional sports for women such as soccer, basketball, and track. In this class, we will look at the lives of some amazing American athletes who just happen to be women.

        Fee:$99.00
        Description:

        You’re standing in a dry rocky field, it’s the year 180 BC, it’s very hot, your thick leather armor chaffs, blisters on your shins from the bronze guards, your helmet feels like a boiling pot, leather sandals melting on your calloused feet, the rough wood of the spear you have a tight grip on,  injects splinters into the palms of your hands. Your shield feels unmercifully heavy. A trumpet blares out harsh sounds, a chorus of shouts and you look up. There’s a large mass of men advancing towards you, bristling with 18-foot pikes like some monster porcupine. The hosts move towards you, thousands of men, flanked by several large elephants ridden by other men who greet you with a cloud of arrows. You stand with fellow legionnaires before the massive phalanx with its accoutrements. Stand facing the heirs of Alexander, standing together in successive lines, until officers shout commands, standards are raised, drums beat, and the company steps off  in a slow march towards the massed enemy, dust clouds gather, a shower of rocks and javelins blot out the hot sun.  You want to run, flee from the event that’s about to unfold before you- the epic phalanx battle…
