Hello eteamz fans,

How's everyone doing? Hope you're all doing great. I'm still recovering from a Halloween sugar overload. Why is it so easy to eat Halloween candy!? Perhaps the candy companies are all in an addictive ingredient conspiracy. Goes down like water. I had to force myself to throw the rest out.

I noticed many teams online with eteamz have been in their local paper(s) recently. Be sure to give your web site address when you're submitting news/scores to your local paper. Therefore, readers of your article can check out your site and even leave you a message. You'll also help increase awareness of eteamz and get other coaches and administrators using the services that benefit you. Let's continue to think about how we can keep growing the community. The larger the community, the more resources and contacts we all have to better our sports.

If you have an idea on how to expand or improve the community, email us at websupport@eteamz.com.

Lots going on here this month. Please take a couple minutes to review the updates and news below. Be sure to check out the inspiring SnapShotz photo this month.

    Hello eteamz fans!

    Winter sports are just getting started. eteamz is here for all your sports from season to season. Are you involved in a ski club or other winter sport? Bring it online.

    48% of you that took last month's poll thought (or maybe hoped) the Red Sox were going to the World Series. Maybe next year? I went to two of the playoff games against the Yankees and had a great time. Check out some of the pictures.

    We've received a lot of questions on uploading images. Be sure that when you save images from your software program, you select the "save for web" option. This will ensure that the images are adaptable to our site. Other questions we've received are images appearing too large. You'll also need to save them as a gif or jpg file in order to upload them.

    If you don't have a photo editor, there are a few below that you may want to use.

    www.myimager.com

    Check out these rockin' sites I came across:

    www.eteamz.com/den5 (One of our new scouting sites!)
    www.eteamz.com/pearlriverhockey (Hockey fans, check out the Hockey Hints page!)

    Look out...your site may be next.

    Time for a Shower!? SnapShotz Photo of the Month

    No Intimidation!
    Submitted by: Mat Adams
    www.eteamz.com/HeartbreakersU10/


    Girls just wanna have fun. Madison, of the Heartbreakers soccer team, goes after the ball and will not be intimidated by the boys. Doesn't "Heartbreaker" seem to be an appropriate name for this situation!?

    eteamz wants to see what you're all up to on the field, court, rink, water, whatever. Be a part of the new eteamz SnapShotz program and send us your favorite sports photo. Click here to submit a photo.

    Way to go Madison. Don't ever let intimidation take over. That goes for all of us. We have so much more potential than we credit ourselves. I challenge you to overcome one of your "intimidators" this month. Whether it's standing up for a belief or approaching a fellow player about their attitude, do your best to not let fear get the best of you.

    Have a great month. Happy Thanksgiving early! Click here for Thanksgiving history and customs. Travel safely and save plenty of room for pumpkin pie. Mmm!

    Until next time...
