    101 with Ericha 101 with Ericha

    Hello eteamz fans!

    I hope everyone has a fun and safe holiday season.

    We've heard from many web site Admins that are already getting ready for the spring season. I bet you're the ones that have your holiday shopping done too! Some of the most asked questions throughout the year are changing your web address, contact person and site name as well as head webmaster.

    If you're assigning a new head webmaster (or just getting started yourself), I would direct them to the Admin Tutorial. This is a great place to get started. Another great resource is searching on the Message Boards and reading some of the past threads. They can also check out our Frequently Asked Questions page.

    Another frequently asked question is adding handouts to your site. Keep in mind that you'll first add the file to the Files section of your Admin Uploads folder. This is where all files on your site are stored. Once added, you will add the file(s) to your Admin Handouts folder. From there, you can add the file wherever you have an add handout button (news article, welcome message, etc.). For more information you can visit our FAQ for uploading/displaying files.

    Is it the year for Kansas? The Kansas Jayhawks and the Kansas City Chiefs are on top now. Take my poll and let me know if you think they'll take it home.

    Check out these rockin' sites I came across:

    www.eteamz.com/BlueCrush14U (great holiday site)
    www.odysseysoftball.com
    www.eteamz.com/sanantoniorush

    Look out...your site may be next.

    If you have any suggestions for the next newsletter, send me an email to: erichastips@eteamz.com.

    Most of us are acquainted someone who seems to be an incredibly dedicated athlete. You know, the person who makes you feel like a wimp because you take a rest day at least once per week and skip a workout if you get caught in a work jam. But she or he exercises every day, at least once if not twice per day. More...
