- I heard from a friend that's involved with Baton Rouge sports that Cypress Mounds is over a million dollars in the red and walmart is looking to buy out the park! Has anyone heard this yet?
I am posting this in case someone doesnt' know.
new to travel leagues but old vets at rec ball; 12-year-old can play infield or outfield. Has also pitched; just won 3rd championship in a row, last 2 years for Dizzy Dean league (best of the best) on the Westbank. Looking for a team in NOLA area to play (and win) for. Willing to work hard, wants to play year-round. Respond or text: 504-909-5292.
I was at my son's tryouts tonight and found out that one of the girls that had initially accepted a spot on my daughters U11 Academy team, has since made the decision that she is not going to "play up" an age group, and appears to be staying with her current club. Consequently, we are looking to fill 1, maybe 2 spots on the roster. We have a great group of girls and parents, have had the same coach since U8, and we consistently finish as one of the top teams in our age group (Division I) improving a bit more each season. If anyone thinks they may be interested, or know of someone that has yet to make a commitment to another club, message me and I can answer any specific questions you may have, and / or connect you with the right people to arrange for a private workout. Thanks and good luck!
Michigan, I hope tryouts went well for you all.
Kick It 3v3 has reduced the entry price of the tournament to only $150 per team, be quick though as it's for a limited time!
The tournament will be held at Borden Park in Rochester Hills, Michigan, July 13 and 14

Questions/Preguntas contact Socorro “Coy” Gray at 817-909-8616 or email@example.com
Looking for players to play a few summer tournaments.
- What should decide what classification your team should be (Americain/National, AA/AAA/Major)? Overall record or bracket play record? I think bracket play should be the true measure of a team. Too many variables for Pool play to be a deciding factor. Everybody is playing to win in Bracket play.
what is the substitution rule for GS?
For example, if we have 12 on our team and bat 11. the 12th kid is the obviously the sub.
If the 12th kid enters the game to play LF in place of little johnny in the 3rd inning.
when we put little johnny back into the game in the 4th inning, does it have to be in place of the original sub or can we put little johnny in for little boudreaux instead ?
This is a warrenty bat that Easton sent me. Bat is still in plastic. New is $199, think I paid bout $220 for it. I'll sell for $150. depending on where you live, you handle shipping charges. I have the batbox they shipped to me as well so I'll ship it in that. PM me with your info if interested.
Sad to see news about Andy Ferrell going to jail for drugs offences on Bulls News.
Don't know him at all but his demeanor on the pitch was always good and as I recall he was a player who could have had a better career at Div 2 / Conference level.
I need some help here and I hope somebody can put me back on track. Last year I had my fantasy football league page formatted properly, but unfortunately, we had too many people with LM rights, and one got mad and deleted the code in the LM Notes section. I left that league and I'm in a new league now: http://games.espn.go.com/ffl/leagueoffice?leagueId=233116&seasonId=2013
Here's my code:
<iframe src="http://bringitffl2009.webs.com/2012SharkTankFFL.html" width="680" height="855" marginheight="2" marginwidth="0" frameborder="0" scrolling="auto" border="0" ></iframe>
<body style="background: url(Code Guide Forum Background Image Code Goes Here);background-position: center top;background-repeat: none;height:0px; color: #8A0808;font-weight:bold;">
I have an image I created that I want to post as the page background (instead of this Code Guide Forum page's background which I only have on there as a place holder). How do I get the background image to not scroll when you scroll down to the bottom of the page? Here's a page I used as an example when I built my new league page. I'm trying to make the page background stationary like the one here: http://games.espn.go.com/ffl/leagueoffice?leagueId=236
It's something simple, I'm sure, and I had it last year, but like a newbie, I did not save the code (on my behalf, who really does plan on a LM throwing a pouty fit like a 3 yr old and deleting the LM Note?)
Parents drinking and getting crunk drunk in the Parkin lot at cypress mounds. Drinking out of bottles, spraying it on each other. Cursing like marines in a bar. When does Usssa draw the line on this behavior. They were wearing blue and gray loud crude and obnoxious I'd what they were.
Anyone else witness at cypress mounds

Hey B/R Writers,
This is Jeff Chase, Bleacher Report’s Community Moderator and I’m happy to announce the expansion of our new media discovery tool to slideshows!
Specifically, the tool we introduced just a few weeks ago to standard articles has been developed for slideshows as well, with a few important modifications.
The most noticeable change to the publishing process is the relocation of your actual slides. The bar of slides that were once on the right have been relocated to the left, and have also been slimmed down. We moved this bar to the left so you could have full access to the media discovery tool on the right, just like in your standard articles.
If you are unfamiliar with how the new media tool works, please feel free to visit the following Forum Post: http://forum.bleacherreport.com/2013/05/21/introducing-the-new-bleacher-report-media-discover/#post0
From now on you will be able to add/drag both photos and videos into the primary slot as the main piece of media for your slides. We require that for the sake of continuity and an enjoyable user experience that you make all photos and videos the same size. So if your first slide has a full-width image then every other slide should also have full-width photos/videos.
However, unlike a standard article, you will not be able to “drag” additional media into the body of the text, which is why you will notice the absence of both tweets and polls.
To add a new slide, please click on the “+” symbol above the vertical bar of slides. You can also remove an unwanted slide by hovering over a box and clicking the “X” that will appear over the slide’s number. If you accidently click the “X,” don’t fret, as you will receive a pop-up asking if you are sure that you’d like to delete the slide.
If you are in the midst of your slideshow and realize you’d like to reorganize the slides, please hover over the specific slide you’d like to move, click and hold onto the slide, and then drag it into the position you’d like.
The best thing you can do is test and learn! We hope you enjoy the new interface and encourage you to contact me at email@example.com with any other questions, concerns or feedback for our staff, please feel free to contact.
Being newer to the area we are looking for some summer camps to send our son. In particular age (14) and skill level (premier) appropriate camps. We would prefer an eastside camp if at all possible.
I've seen more advertisements for the PDA than posts from the CCV guys from India:)
Hope your new club had strong turnouts and you are able to field competitive teams this fall. Looking forward to tryouts being over so we can get back to gossiping like 7 year old girls.
Anyone have any thoughts or experience with this program? I have 2 sons that fall into the age group for this years program. at $300 for 8 sessions it is very cheap, but that is rarely a good thing.
(I have no connection to this group whatsoever, but I thought this article is well worth sharing and can make a big difference in some travel ball teams.)
"What is the single biggest source of problems in youth sports?" - The question asked late last week during a pre-launch interview:
"My position on this is different than most others’, because I think the problems are misdiagnosed. But before I can explain what the source is, we have to understand the real problem.
Look, everybody tells us what the problems are in youth sports: Coaches and parents berate kids. Parents scream at umpires. Adults re-living playing days through the kids. Parents/coaches want to win more than the kids want it. Coaches ride their top pitches too hard and cause them injury, trying to win. Parents and coaches from opposing teams actually punching each other at games. This is all obvious stuff, and none of them are wrong. But, the real problems in youth sports are more covert, much more widespread, and almost all of us contribute to it from time to time. It's the talk that goes on away from the others on the team, in the car on the way home, behind closed doors, the covert stuff. It’s when parents who are normally ok around the yard become harsh critics behind closed doors, in front of the kids. Bad-mouthing coaches, tearing down other players to make ourselves feel better about our kids, all the stuff we cover at Squared Away on a regular basis. Where these people, who write the do and do not lists for sports, swing and miss is they don't understand WHY people do what we do, and therefore they can’t really get to what the real root of the problem is.
The SOURCE OF THE PROBLEMS - 99.9% of the conflicts we experience in kids' sports comes down to this one simple fact: we all have different rules, and those rules are never communicated with one another. When our rules get violated, we get angry, frustrated, upset, etc. The rules I'm talking about here aren't the rules you see posted in league or team websites. These are deeper, more complex and subjective rules inside us that have developed throughout our lives, through our upbringing and experiences. They’re our fundamental rules. These make up our mental and emotional blueprint for how we view the world. Most of us don't operate day-to-day conscious of what our blueprints or rules are, and the difficult part is that none of us got to consciously select them. They were given to us by whoever was in a position to impact us as we were growing up and having our views shaped. And most of us have no clue how to re-create a new blueprint-one that we consciously choose for ourselves and our families-one that can set us on an entirely new path. We just let our rules guide us...whether they're empowering or not, whether they set us up for success or failure, whether they lead us to constant frustration in and around our kids sports. Furthermore, these blueprints will either lead us to a life of success and prosperity and purpose, or they can drive us to despair, failure, and poverty.
We never talk about them or let people know what our fundamental rules are, and that is exactly the thing that sets us up for a rough ride with our kids, teams, and coaches. If our fundamental rules aren't violated throughout our kids playing sports, we're good. If they are, we're not good. Each person involved in the youth sports experience has different rules. Those rules drive every single one of us to say and do whatever it is we say and do around our kids' sports. And the fact that these rules go unacknowledged and never communicated to one another, that's the source of our problems.
Let me illustrate: A few folks decide to start a team, they name the coach, and start spreading the word to other families. They get a staff, uniforms, schedule, etc. They talk about expectations, travel, fees, rules for conduct. If we all sat down and explained to one another what our fundamental rules are, we'd be aware of potential conflicts and avoid almost all of the issues we run into throughout the season. One parent has a fundamental rule that says "my kid's self-esteem is a big priority and I won't tolerate a coach yelling at him for making a mistake". Another parent on the team has the rule that says "my kid needs to be tough, it's a tough world out there, if he screws up I need the coach to get loud and get into him so he toughens up". Another parent's rule is "a good coach never has to raise his voice to lead a team". A fourth parent's rule is "any coach who yells at kids is a lunatic that's trying to live out his own failures through these kids." Regardless of what the coach's rules are, this team is already not even close to being on the same page. And this is only one consideration. The coach's rule is "I won't yell at a kid for making a physical mistake, but I will absolutely yell at a kid for not hustling or mental mistakes". So at this point you've got several parents whose rules are going to get violated many times over the summer because your leader is going to yell at kids pretty regularly, given that kids make tons of mental mistakes.
One mother has a rule that says ""a good coach will always tell my son good job, even if he struck out". Kind of a specific rule, but we all have ones like these regardless of whether we're aware of them or not. Coach's rule in this realm is "there's an epidemic out there of parents who celebrate mediocrity in their kids. These folks who say "good job" even if their kid strikes out are setting them up for failure in life, because there are winners and losers out there and kids need to be prepared for it. I will not reinforce poor performance or lack of execution". Uh oh. This is going to be a problem. Mom's rule is being violated every single time the kid K's. Better hope he puts it in play most of the time.
Dad has a rule that says "I love that the play is competitive, but every one of these kids has worked hard, they ALL should play in these tournament games." Coach's rule is "this is a competitive team, playing time is earned. We are going to play to win tournaments, so playing time isn't guaranteed." Another disaster waiting to happen.
What's most unfortunate is that the team is going to have issues, yes, but really nobody in this situation is wrong or at fault. They're all just living out what they believe to be right, based on their blueprint for how this stuff works. Teams fall apart and break up every single year because they failed to communicate rules to one another....again, the internal, fundamental rules that make our mental blueprint. If these people had just known what each others' rules were, they could have done a number of things to avoid the issues they had.
You get the point. But see, as we mentioned, nobody in this situation is wrong. And everybody....I mean EVERYBODY believes that their rules are the right rules. It's only natural, because we're talking about beliefs. It's what we believe, so of course we're going to think that we're right. So we've got a problem. “ So now we’re faced with communicating, but more importantly, changing our mental blueprints...that’s the hard part. "
And how that’s done is coming in post #2, later on today or tomorrow morning....
Besides you know who ;)
Anyone have any positive or negative experience with ODP at the younger ages? I am still fairly new as a youth soccer parent, but have my daughter signed up for the '02 age group tryouts later this summer. I have heard mixed reviews, some even stating a bias against west side players. I am curious if there is a true bias, or if its just a fact of a larger pool of available players from the east side. Is it even worth the time and commitment, assuming of course she even makes it through tryouts? Just curious. Thanks in advance.
Boys and girls in Michigan attended tryouts for travel soccer teams and clubs across the state last weekend, June 15-16. Congrats to all of the players!Have a wonderful season and year (2013 - 2014)!CONGRATS DUCKK! -- Newest Member of the U15 AC Milan/Waza East NPL TeamPLEASE SHARE POSITIVE STORIES AND PICTURES ABOUT PLAYERS AND CLUBS HERE!
I'll admit, we had visions we would add 2-3 Hawks or Vardar players who would take us from being a top team in the State to a top MRL team. The players just switched places. No problem, we addressed our weak points by cuts and additions. Maybe we will still become a top MRL team. Certainly, we have a great chance to maintain stellar chemistry and zero drama. In the end it dawned on me that the best teams probably start by not losing top players then add by ones and two's. And maybe we need to be careful what we wish for.
The forum celebrates its 3rd birthday on June 18th. There might not be many of us left, but it's still a milestone.
After completing my 3rd Tri I have realised how slow I am on the bike so am looking for a turbo trainer. Any advice on what to look for or does anyone have one to sell?
Looking for players to play 9U summer ball and move to 10U in the fall.

State cup is always interesting at U-13, because it is really the first year for these players in the competition. With tryouts now over I am wondering who the favorites are on both the Girls and Boys sides?
I am planning on going to Polo Saturday the 22rd along with Bob W., Dan M., and Ray P. We will be finalizing the sections for the event on the 23rd. Right now my plans are to camp Saturday night. Everyone is welcome to camp and bench race Saturday night. See you all this week-end. Ralph
I live in the Phoenix Arizona and just got back from a trip back home to Tennessee. I did a good amount of hiking and fishing while I was there which rekindled soem hunting roots that I have not persued in this concrete jungle as much as I would like.
I have had some recent interests in non firearm hunting/target weaponry. I like my guns but like the idea and challnges of a harder hunt.
It didn't take long to see that FACTORY HUNTING DARTS ARE VERY HARD TO FIND.
I looked at a few posts on this forum with ideas on building my own hunting darts. Some of you guys are very talented and resourceful!
In my past I haven't been known to be the handiest guy so this stuff doesn't come easy to me but i am enthusiastic to get started building my own darts.
I went to the hardware store today and bought soem dowel rods, x acto blades and super glue. The guy there told me that i should get harder wood like Alder or maple. I got 5/16 and 3/8 " rods.
I will stop buy a specialty wood supply store ASAP for straighter harder wood.
I would like darts for more take down power for critters squirell and a few punds up.
Gators Soccer Club u14 Girls GK needed
The Gators Soccer Club u14 girls are currently fielding three teams, two MYSL (premier / Major Gold) and one MSPSL (P2) this year.
With us having three teams & a handful of players playing high school in the Spring between the three teams, we will be in need of a goal keeper (missing two for the spring). The keeper will be utilized throughout the year (not just a substitution for the 2014 spring season).
This will be a good opportunity for a Keeper that did not make the cut this weekend.
Gators Soccer Club is located out of Sterling Heights

Watched Northshore Hurricanes and Tiger Baseball in a 1-0 classic yesterday.
Very well played game with few bad calls, few errors and few coaching mistakes.
Two very good catchers and real good pitching.
It was a real joy watching 9major ball played at that level. Kudos to both programs.
I have no ties to either team.
Last year on June 26th the question was asked:
"If we need to do a preseason ranking for the upcoming U13 boys top ten teams, How do you think the list will end up? I like to see more than one list and please ....be fair."
Well its June 17th so what are the top 10 rankings for this year’s U14 boys, who will be in Saginaw?
So, try outs didn't go so hot. Put our eggs in wrong basket and not enough kids showed up to create a team. Now, all the other choices for my daughter are filled. What is best way to approach clubs about any openings they may be holding back? Is it possible to get a private tryout after everyone else is done? How would they really be able to compare our daughter to others in a private tryout? Just looking for some ideas or suggestions. Looking for U15 premier team in Grand Rapids area.
Anyone have any comments or info on how tryouts went for the local U13B teams? Player movement? How many moved to AC Milan from the top clubs?
Hello. My name is Cody Smith, and I'm planning on taking Sports Journalism at Centennial College in 2014. I have previous experience writing for newspapers, and I believe that BR would give me a good chance to express my skills and prepare me for my future. However, I have applied twice, and I keep getting rejected. It seems to me that people with less experience can write on BR, and I've read the whole "How you can get the gig" article. Why am I getting rejected, and how can this be changed? I have interests in writing for almost anything, including my hometown teams here in Toronto. Does anyone have any advice for me?
A new shirt sponsor is set to be unveilved at a launch at the club on Sunday July 7th when a new club shop, built next to the new stand, will be open and the new shirts will be on sale to supporters.
For more on this and other news, including the new under-19 reserve team which has received over 80 applications to attend this week's trials, see Seagulls Online.
Always been a Saturday 3pm man myself, but it's got to be worth thinking about - would it improve attendances, and even atmosphere?
Can't help think it may be a good move - not a lot of other sporting events going on on Friday evenings etc.
Is there anything in place meaning clubs can not switch games to Friday nights?
Like I say, always been against it personally, but can't help think it might be worth trialling. I guess the downside MIGHT be less children (fans of the future) but it could be their end of week treat...
Hi, does anyone have a very large wet suit suit someone approx 6'2" and big build? I am trying to convince my other half he needs to do Open Water but not convinced he will so don't want to pay too much first time.

Do to the continuous rain and potential thunderstorms, the ride is canceled for the day. Saying that, Don C said that he would be there anyway. Not saying he is riding, I'm just saying that he said he would be there.
