Hello eteamz fans,

Rob Costlow What a great community of administrators, coaches, athletes, parents, and fans we have here at eteamz. You all should pat yourselves on the back. We're quickly approaching 2 million teams and you're to thank for spreading the word about active.com and eteamz.com. THANK YOU!

There will be some big changes and new features in 2005. For example, check out the new site we launched for our partner NFL Youth Football. Keep you eyes and ears posted on the latest news each month.

A great example of this community are the three lucky 2004 Spooky Site Contest winners. These sites had everything from great stories to Halloween recipes. Be sure to check them out (not all may have their Halloween content up any longer). This was the most active Spooky Site Contest so far at eteamz. It was very tough for us to choose the official winners.

A BIG congratulations to:

  • http://eteamz.active.com/tivertonll
  • http://eteamz.active.com/wildblueblazes
  • http://eteamz.active.com/alltomahawksrock

    Thanks to ALL the sites that participated in the contest! We appreciate your effort and support. Happy early Thanksgiving! Be safe in your travels and pace out the food consumption...so you can eat more.

    Hello eteamz fans,

    Welcome to the November edition of the newsletter. In last month's poll I asked about your favorite things to do during the fall season. 30% of you chose watch fall sports as your favorite activity. The runner up was getting your players ready for the spring season.

    We received great feedback from members for including the Sponsor and Banner information in last month's newsletter. Let me know what you'd like to see in next month's newsletter. Do you have something cool on your site that you'd like to share? Let me know!

    Roster Profile
    Would you like to add additional information about your players and coaches on the site? Things such as awards they've received, college information and additional statistics. You can add this information within the Roster Profile. Go to your Roster folder in Admin, click the "edit" icon next to the member's name then enter the information within their Profile. The information will display on the main Roster page when clicking the member's name. Click here for an example.

    Good Hit! SnapShotz Photo of the Month

    What Happened!?
    Submitted by: Joe Caulfeld

    This picture was taken at a game featuring the Fellowship of Christian Athletes Lacrosse Ministry vs. Keio University - a University in Japan who traveled to the U.S. to take on some of the best teams in the country. FCA won the game 7-2, but the Keio defender here got the best of the FCA attacker as he sent the FCA player's stick helicoptering through the air. You can read more about the Keio trip at: www.lax.com/stories/1302 (an article I wrote and took all the pictures for). - Joe Caulfeld
