Last year, I began coaching my daughter's U-8 team. The girls knew nothing about the glories of the USWNT. I told them about Mia Hamm and got them to read a brief bio on her, but this HBO documentary was the best teaching tool ever.

It is a great story that uses the retirement game for Hamm, Fawcett and Foudy to lok back at the history of the WNT from the first WC in 1991 through the 2004 Olympics.

This movie can't help but increase the self esteem of any young girl just starting the sport to see how good the Americans can be at soccer. Because the Men's World Cup gets more publicity, my girls all thought that Americans just weren't very good at soccer and that it was dominated by a half dozen European and So. American countries. This video points out that historically the US WNT is the best. It really got my daughter interested in the current WNT and we even went to see a game in San Jose last month.

The release is being timed to come just after the beginning of this year's Women's World Cup in China. (The first game for the US team, who are #1 ranked again, is Sept. 11th.

HBO is also selling it directly through their website, but for $5 more.

I originally saw this documentary on HBO over a year ago. After watching it, I knew I had to get it on DVD for my daughter for Christmas this year. A truly inspirational story for anyone, but especially for young women, this story of the USA Women's Soccer Team shows their rise from obscurity to glory. My daughter was so captivated by the emotional and educational aspects of the Team's struggle to achieve validation, notoriety and greatness in the historically male centric American sports scene, that she has already planned to have her entire soccer team over to our house for a group viewing to inspire them for the upcoming season.

Talk about once in a lifetime historical event, team, process. The U.S. Women's Soccer Team was the result of a generational dream that started before the girls were born and they were there at the right place and right time in history to make history. A great, great story that has been written and can't be tarnished. Modern day pioneers. Beware of the video, it can be a tear jerker for those that enjoy witnessing others standing on the mountain top. Best sports story since Secretariat winning the Triple Crown, hands down.

Bought this for my 13 year old soccer daughter and she really enjoyed the story... we all did! Pretty fascinating story of the National Team. We have actually watched it a few times now.
After watching it I decided to read Hope Solo's autobiography which was really interesting to see through her eyes how she viewed the original team- big differences! Unfortunately, couldn't let my daughter read the autobiography as the language was definitely inappropriate, but I did share with her how Hope viewed the team as the movie and her account seemed to differ quite a bit.
I would definitely recommend the movie- may even bring a few tears to your eyes!

This is an exceptional documentary of the United States Womens' National Soccer Team (USWNT) that everyone should watch. From overcoming stereotypes about women in sports to what they were willing to and did endure. It shows how a select group of outstanding women elevated soccer to the level of achieving World Cup victories and greater viewership than for any other soccer match in U.S. history. While its content only covers through 2004, it provides an insightful background for understanding the players that delivered the U.S. victory for the 2015 Womens' World Cup.

While one reviewer is correct that there is some bad language, a mindful parent can appropriately address that. Sadly, it is far less than they hear on the playground, certainly by middle school. That said, the lessons for young girls about overcoming stereotypes and the lessons for young men about not be guided by stereotypes about girls and women far outweigh this minor issue. There are far too few well presented videos that address these issues to ignore this one.

I have been a fan of soccer for over 30 years. For me there are certain American highlights that I will always remember - Pele coming to America, the mens world cup being held here, and the women's world cup championship. I first saw this documentary when traveling to New York City. I can remember sitting there and thinking how well Dare to Dream captured the feelings of the time around this team. I could not wait to get it so I can watch it again.

I have a daughter who plays soccer and other sports and it's hard to find mainstream media stories about succesful women athletes. This video does it all - it's a great soccer story, it's a great story about women, and it's a great story about atheletes who truly came from no where and vaulted into the psyche of this country and plenty of others.

While it is a great story I think that the production of this documentary is also extremely well done. Great action scenes, great interviews, and some great private video footage. Excellent - an absolute must for any fan of women's soccer. A great buy for any fan of sports.
