For more than 40 years, women's participation in sports has shot up at nearly every level. More than 3.2 million female athletes are competing at the high school level. Nearly a quarter-million more play in college. And thousands of professional athletes, like beach volleyball player Lane Carico, are working tirelessly for a shot to compete on the world stage.
All of this makes now a perfect time for Eastbay, the go-to resource for athletes who care about winning, to release their first catalog dedicated solely to women. Featuring Carico on the cover, the new catalog contains more than 50 pages of the best athletic apparel, shoes and equipment on the market today—expressly for women.
Driven, confident, motivated female athletes will find everything they need to look and perform their best on and off the field. The catalog includes a Spring Sports Guide with the latest soccer cleats, high-performance offerings for fastpitch softball, and strong new looks for running and training. There's also a bounty of standout gear for when female athletes want to kick back and go casual.

Inside Eastbay's first women's-only catalog, you'll learn more about Carico's quest for international prominence. She explains how her training off the sand sets her up for success on it, combining lightning speed with short, explosive movements that enable her to respond to any strike from an opponent.
"I will stop at nothing to reach my ultimate goal by working extremely hard every day, really living my commitments, and just doing whatever I need to do to be performing my best," Carico says.
The catalog featuring Carico is the first of three women's issues planned by Eastbay this year. The second will hit the mail on July 25 and include cutting edge performance gear for fall sports, as well as new looks that will define fresh during the next school year.
Catalog number three will arrive just in time for the holidays, shipping out in mid-November and featuring new basketball gear along with everything female athletes will need to conquer cold weather training.
"For 35 years, Eastbay has proudly celebrated women's athletics and the discipline, competitiveness and camaraderie that sports reinforce in their lives," said Bob Stephan, vice president of marketing at Footlocker.com. "Our vendor partners are stretching like never before to provide a new level of freshness and innovation in women's technical athletic products. We felt that now is the time to dedicate an Eastbay catalog to women."
