Next Game

Helfaer Field in Wisconsin is the location of our final game of the season. Game start time is 10:30am. Coach would like the players there at 9:30am. Now considering some of you are traveling to Wisconsin on Thursday, it should not be a problem. However for those of us heading up Friday it may a bit more taxing. Keep in mind when planning your travel that there is reported construction on 90/94.

Welcome to the GBA 10W Travel Blog!

OK. So all corny-ness aside, this seemed the easiest and most practical solution. Everyone is familiar with YouTube and should be familiar with blogs. Yes, FaceBook is technically one too. Anyway, here we can post stories (if we desire) throughout the year, coaching tips (the kids should hopefully get a benefit - they are allot more tech savvy then we sometimes give them credit for..), schedule updates, etc.. Just a central point of reference.

So.. here is what is happening here. We have videos at the top. All hosted on YouTube. Our YouTube channel is GBA10W. In case you want to search there. We have a column on the right side that we can use for updates, news, whatever. It will also store any of the "main" articles posted here.

Coaches.. I am in the process of sending you all the info you would need to post ANYTHING you should want. If there are videos you found somewhere else, and you want them showing on OUR blog (page, whatever you wanna call it). All I need is the link and I can embed the video into our site. You want to post a write-up on proper stance, power position, etc.. write it up and I will post it. Or you can log on and post it directly.

Here is where the call goes out to parents. Seriously, if ANYONE wants to get involved please email me and let me know what you would like to do. EVERYTHING is open. :) Anyone want to "cover" the team throughout the season? Photos, videos, anything!!

The cool thing is if we do this right... anyone who may want a "keepsake" of sorts can just let me know and I can package up all the pics, videos, stories, etc.. from the entire season, put them on a disc and there you go! Instant electronic scrapbook!

Also... when the coaches or anyone writes a story for this middle section, they will be scrolling down on the page as new ones are added. But they are always available.. and there is a comment section below each story. Team/Parents/Coaches, leave comments. You can further a discussion this way and that could be fun.
