After the '96 Olympics, we all started believing that this is bigger than we thought, and we were willing to do the work. We knew that it was up to us, the players, to make soccer successful.

And I remember how proud I was to put on my training jersey and go out on the field. Making it back to that environment was for me my greatest moment, because somebody had told me I couldn't do it and I never gave up on myself, the game and my teammates.

And then ultimately what I tell the kids is: coaches can give you information, they can give you guidelines, and they can put you in a position. But the only person who can truly make you better is you.

I have a 16 year-old son, so I'm now a soccer mom. I stand on the sidelines and I hear the things parents are saying, so I want them to understand what it is their kids are feeling in any sports environment.

I played mostly games like Asteroids and Pac-Man. Today, when I go into an arcade, the games are much more difficult and complex. I don't think I could even play some of the video games that are out there today.
- Brandi Chastain Quote

I think itís devastating when I hear a school doesnít have the necessities to make physical education part of what a young person ó male or female ó gets in the school system, mainly because I know how valuable the lesson are you learn on the field that translate what I do off the field. And, I know the significant contribution that being healthy, physically fit, does for our ability to focus, pay attention, to study. Everybodyís worried about standardized testing but we donít care that our kids are sitting on the couch playing video games and becoming complete mental mush-heads. Weíre not feeding the whole person and I think thatís contributing to the decline in those test results.

I think itís changing. I saw a picture of Dara Torres on the from page of The New York Times yesterday in a beautiful black gown. There is nothing about her that is not athletic and not incredibly well shaped and strong and fit and yet look at how incredibly beautiful she looks. I have two sons. One is a junior in college and he has body image issues, too. I donít think this is particular to girls. Itís more hidden for boys because they donít talk about it. But I think things are changing. The female athlete is becoming more mainstream. I see it on these prime-time shows. I can definitely tell Brooke Shields has been working out. Sheís got some tone and definition in her arms. You never saw that before. So I think itís gradually changing to more that athletic body.

I think there are a lot of things that soccer does in the communities that transcend the soccer field.

I was the kid who always liked to take the ball down to the school even in my free time, kick it against the wall, juggle it in the front yard and so it was kind of a perpetual state of playing soccer for me.
- Brandi Chastain Quote

I went to professional men's soccer games, the old North American soccer league at that time, and I used to be a ticket holder with my family and family friends. We would go every weekend and I thought it was great, but I just thought of it as recreation, as family fun.
- Brandi Chastain Quote

Julie, Mia and I just met for a couple days, doing some work but really under the guise of having fun. We do events like the Women's Sports Foundation Dinner, where we get to not only do a good thing for the community but we get to hang out with one another again.
- Brandi Chastain Quote

My parents and my grandfather on my mom's side would travel the earth. They went to Australia and China, and they went to probably every soccer game I ever played.
- Brandi Chastain Quote

Number one, it was a chance to thank my parents, because they passed away a couple of years ago. They gave me so much by giving me the opportunity to play soccer, and I wanted to share the story we had together.
- Brandi Chastain Quote

So along with that is spending a lot of time with the ball. For me it was, I loved to juggle the ball in my front yard, and I always challenged myself - how many juggles can I get today? I think for players to get better, it's just about spending the time.
