We should mention that CoachDeck for Basketball will be available to purchase October 1st, so feel free to spread the word to all the hardwood coaches you know. Also, we welcome a new sponsor, Cleatskins, who produce a remarkable product - the likes of which you've never seen. As always we hope you enjoy this issue of On Deck and will share it with others.
