Hello eteamz Fans,

Happy summer! I'm sure many of you will be taking time off for summer vacations soon, if not already. I wish those of you traveling a fun and safe journey. Be sure to stop by eteamz in-between your summer adventures and chores to see what's new. Please help us out by spreading the word about Tell all your friends!

A national event coming up you may find interesting involves one of our very own Tee Ball teams. The Naval Base Little League Yankees will be playing on the White House lawn June 22. They will be facing the Fort Belvoir Little League Braves. Click here to read about the game.

Have you ever checked out our online tips and drills? Coach Vic, our online basketball coach, recently took a long journey over to Croatia. Click here to check out his adventure.

What's your call on the NBA finals? Spurs or Nets? Or, perhaps you really don't care. Voice your opinion on the Team News & More message board.

    Is it already time to gear up for tournament season? We've had a lot of questions regarding tournament brackets (where to find them, how to enter them, etc.).

    We offer a software product called myteam Tournament Builder Pro. With this software you can create brackets, schedule tournaments, update scores and post directly to your eteamz site. Click here for more information.

    For those of you that are not participating in summer tournaments, now is a perfect time to get involved in summer activities. Did you know you could build a site for your yoga class, swimming class, kayaking, weight lifting, golf and many more!

    If you won't be using your current site throughout the summer, be sure you login in to your Admin every few weeks. If you have a basic site and it isn't updated within a 6-month period it will be deleted (we send warnings 1 month in advance to the email address on record). If you have a PLUS site, no need to worry.

    If your email address has changed, you can update it by following the instructions on our FAQ Page.

    As always, check out these cool sites I came across: (great idea for schools)

    Look out...your site may be next.

    Coach Vic Goes to Croatia

    eteamz' online basketball coach, Vic Pruden (aka Coach Vic), took his wife to see the places he had visited on an earlier trip to in Croatia, particularly the Island of Vis where he introduced Bee Ball at a basketball camp for 8 weeks in 1991.

    He held another short camp recently. This camp was organized by an organization from Zagreb called Vucici. It all happened as a result of Vucici seeing the Coach Vic eteamz web site.

    Mount Hamilton Lobitos eteamz All-Stars Winner
    Mount Hamilton Lobitos

    In March 2003, the Mount Hamilton Lobitos won the '03 Snickers State Cup in California.

    Santa Cruz Assault played a great game against the Lobitos, but the Lobitos shutout the Assault 2 - 0. The field was turf which made it difficult for both teams to play on.

    The Lobitos webmaster sends a special thanks to all the parents for their ongoing support. And a special thanks to Gaby for coaching and motivating the boys.

    The Lobitos are on their way to Oahu, Hawaii for the Regionals June 22-28, 2003.

    I just want to let you know I'll be coming along to Hawaii. Someone from eteamz should be their to cheer on the Lobitos. Right!? I need a tan too. Seriously, have a great trip. All of us here at eteamz wish you the best of luck. Play hard and have fun! Everyone feel free to chat about the Mount Hamilton Lobitos or any related topic on the Soccer message boards.

    Want to be an eteamz all-star? Send me a photo and description of your team, league or individual all-star. I'm looking for all-stars to highlight in upcoming newsletters. If I choose your team, league or individual all-star, I'll publish your information in the newsletter and give your web site eteamz PLUS free for a year.

    Send your photo, description and web site address to

    Have fun this summer. If you get caught on a rainy day, get online with us and strike up a chat on the bulletin boards. You can also work on your web site for this fall. Never too early to get started.
