    Hi Mary Jo and all!

    Two questions about women and girls:

    1) What is the most important issue concerning active/athletic girls and women today?

    2) What do teachers, professors, and coaches most need to know or do to support or promote physical activity for girls and women?

    Please answer either or both, briefly or at length, here or directly to me. At the American Association for Physical Activity and Recreation, we’re making plans to create a National Council for Active Girls and Women, and want your input!

    My daughter has suffered with shin splints for the last two years due to playing soccer. The odd thing is that she has calnous in the calf tissue and edema in her entire legs. She has taking time off from the sport to recover but it continues to come back. She has alot of tightness in her calf muscle. Nobody can figure out the edema. Does anybody have any ideas for us.
