Happy Holidays eteamz Fans,

Rob Costlow I wish all of you the best this holiday season. Stay safe, warm, and take some time to relax with your friends and family. If you wish to collect donations on behalf of any special charity, event, or individual this holiday season, please click here to learn about our ActiveGiving donation service.

Unfortunately with all the holiday fun and spending comes impostors who try to gain financially by deceit. Recently, impostors have been sending out email messages to eteamz members acting as if they're active.com or eteamz.com staff. This is similar to what eBay, CitiBank, and other large companies have been dealing with for a good part of 2004.

If you receive any messages pertaining to our business that do not come from an eteamz (@eteamz.com) or active (@active.com) email address, it is likely an impostor. Most importantly, we will never anonymously ask for your personal or billing information over email. If you receive an email from any suspicious sources, do not reply. We built the new Message Center for you to help avoid these types of issues.

    Attention PLUS site administrators! A little something just in time for the holidays. If you haven't noticed, we launched three new PLUS features this week.
    1. Change the order of your site menu (including News items) within the new Page Ordering section (under the Admin Site Appearance folder).
    2. For those sites with statistics, you may now choose to hide specific statistic categories you do not use. You will choose to show or hide these categories when editing or adding a schedule within your Games section (under the Admin Schedules folder).
    3. In the Labels section (under the Admin Site Appearance folder) you may now change the label for "Home" (which is the main link site visitors click to get back to your site home page).
    Don't have PLUS? Get the all-inclusive Holiday PLUS package, which includes Basic PLUS, Advertising Options, and a FREE 40MB space upgrade for one year (saves you $39.90)! This offer good through 1/4/05.

    101 with Ericha

    Ericha Hello eteamz fans,

    We're coming upon our busiest time of the year, when admins are gearing up for the spring season. That usually means changing your web address, site name, contact information and webmaster. We also have a list of frequently asked questions for adding a new season (PLUS sites only).

    Scheduling on Team Sites
    If you have a Team site type, be sure you schedule games with your team. Your team is listed in the Teams folder in bold print. Some admins make the mistake of adding their team a second time in the Teams folder and scheduling games with that "opponent team". The Teams folder in a Team site type is where you enter your opponent teams only, for scheduling purposes. In order for your scores and stats to update, you need to be sure you schedule the games with the correct team.

    The College Football bowl games are just around the corner. Which bowl game is your favorite? Take my latest poll and let me know.

    Check out these cool sites.

    Good Hit! SnapShotz Photo of the Month

    Practice Hard
    Submitted by: Lee Pulver

    This was just another beautiful day down at Edgewater Park in Cleveland, Ohio. The building in the background is the BP building in downtown Cleveland.

    Our girls are doing what they do best, practicing hard... that's how they became the #1 Girls HS team in Ohio last season.
