Happy New Year eteamz Fans!

It has been a rough start to the new year. The tsunami and dangerous weather in many parts of the nation are terrible to watch. It has been very heartwarming to see the outpouring of support and assistance being offered those in need all over the world.

In these days where so many people take so much for granted, it is imperative that we make the most of each day. Find something you're passionate about and use your privileges and talents to help others with similar interests/talents to develop, reach their goals, and make the most of their lives.

This mentality can be applied to any of your sports. Don't take the privilege of playing a sport for granted. Practice hard, be a team player, and when you see an opportunity to help someone out (whether it's advice, monetary, or just lending a helping hand), try it. The world is always watching. Would you be embarrassed by some of your recent actions on the court, track, rink, or field? Your attitude and how you apply yourself will make all the difference in your life, and everyone will benefit.

If you'd like to help out with the tsunami disaster, the International Community Foundation is using one of our services (www.ActiveGiving.com) to collect donations for the UN Tsunami Disaster Relief Fund. Please visit www.active.com/donate/UNtsunami to read more and make a donation.

    Finding the Energy Finding the Energy: To Get It You Have To Spend It

    Exercise provides energy, but you need energy to exercise. If you don't keep your eye on your goals, it's easy for exercise -- and the good habits that sustain it -- to be left out. Here are some ideas. More...

    Good Hit! SnapShotz Photo of the Month

    Submitted by: Kevin Wagner

    This picture was taken of 14 year old Erin Wagner of the Buffalo Regals Girls hockey team during the forth overtime period of the semi final game of the New York State Amateur Hockey Association tier II Tournament in Skaneateles, New York. It was the second longest game to be played in state tournament history. The expression on her face reflects the focus and determination of her entire team. They won that game and went on to win the state championship game, which was played three hours later on that same day. More proof that the Face of Hockey is changing.
