Canton, Ohio, is known for its parks and green spaces, vibrant cultural arts scene and as the birthplace of professional football. The city’s dedication to physical health and fitness makes it the perfect place to bungee jump. Whether you’re a first-timer or a veteran jumper, Canton makes an ideal backdrop for bungee jumping.
Most Canton, Ohio, bungee jumping outfitters offer year-round bungee jumping. However, be aware that reservations are subject to cancellation during bad weather. According to Climate Charts, an online climate data resource, Canton can reach minimum temperatures of 17 degrees Fahrenheit in January, and temperatures above 80 degrees Fahrenheit in summer. Rain and snow are not uncommon in winter times, so consider scheduling bungee jumping reservations during more temperate weather.
Bungee jumping processes are fairly standard, including those in Canton, Ohio. Most bungee jumping companies operate from towers built with platforms. Bungee jumpers ascend the tower and are strapped into a harness, usually alongside an expert instructor. There are a variety of jumping harnesses that affect jumping style and performance, according to Bungee Zone. Harnesses include body harnesses, leg harnesses and arm harnesses. Bungee Zone recommends the “swallow dive,” which involves jumping from the platform with outstretched arms. Expect to spend about an hour preparing for and executing the bungee jump.

Most bungee jumping companies in Canton, Ohio, require that bungee jumpers be at least 18 years old. Technical requirements may prohibit people weighing over 220 pounds from participating.

Vince Lombardi never said, “Winning isn’t everything; it’s the only thing.” Although that is the quote most often attributed to him, his actual words were: “Winning is not everything, but making the effort to win is.” All his life, Lombardi made that effort.

The Brooklyn-born Lombardi (1913-1970) first entered the football limelight during the mid-1930s as a guard on Fordham University’s famous “Seven Blocks of Granite” line. He didn’t play in the NFL but went directly into coaching.
He built a sterling reputation as an assistant with several strong college teams and, in the 1950s, as the New York Giants’ offensive coach under Jim Lee Howell.
Meanwhile, desperation had set in with the Green Bay Packers, who were at the lowest point in their history. In 1958, they managed to win only one game. Lombardi was hired as head coach and given complete control.
It was the first time he’d been head man other than of a high school team. Lombardi traded for such young players with potential as Willie Davis, changed quarterback flop Paul Hornung into a star running back, nurtured unheralded Bart Starr into a brilliant quarterback, and drove the team mercilessly.
Lombardi emphasized execution, blocking

, and tackling rather than razzle-dazzle. Most important, he instilled in his players a willingness to “make the effort.”
The results were instantaneous. His 1959 team won seven of 12 games. In 1960, Green Bay took its division title, but that was only the beginning.
Lombardi’s Packers were NFL champions in 1961 and 1962. After two years of retooling, they won titles in 1965, 1966, and 1967. The latter two teams won the first two Super Bowls.
In 1969, the Washington Redskins, another team with a long losing habit, hired Lombardi to turn them around. He was well on his way to doing just that when he was fatally stricken with cancer before the 1970 season.
He was named to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1971. He is memorialized by the Lombardi Trophy, awarded to each year’s Super Bowl winner.

, a 7.0-magnitude earthquake struck Haiti, a nation widely considered the poorest in the Western Hemisphere. Disaster relief experts estimated that 230,000 lives were lost during the earthquake and in its aftermath. Later in the year, another disaster struck Haiti: a cholera outbreak. In mid-November, more than 900 people were dead from cholera and another 14,000 were hospitalized.
The National Collegiate Athletic Association, or NCAA, is the governing body for higher-level collegiate athletics throughout the country

. If you are a baseball player or coach in the NCAA, you need to learn the rules for off-season practice to avoid penalties. Rules and regulations differ between NCAA Division I, NCAA Division II and NCAA Division III, so be sure to check the correct manual.
Division I of the NCAA includes more than 300 colleges and universities. Another 300 institutions are in Division II, and Division III has 400 schools. Schools in NCAA Division I or Division II must meet certain criteria, such as minimum number of sports offered. Division II is less competitive than Division I. Division III is the least competitive. In each category, men’s baseball is a championship sport with an NCAA-sponsored national tournament.
An important role of NCAA rules and regulations is to allow student athletes to succeed in school while they are members of their college or university teams. During regular season and championship season, practices and games can be intense and time consuming. For baseball, the NCAA bans off-season practices associated with the college or college’s own coaching staff to give baseball players the chance to recover from the season. Another benefit is to prevent competing teams from having advantages from extra practice.
The off-season begins at the end of the NCAA baseball championship game. During the summer

, student athletes may not participate in school-sponsored or coach-organized baseball practices. The first pre-season practice may take place on the fourth day of classes or on a specified date in September, depending on which comes first. During this part of the off-season, teams must take at least one day off from practicing per week. Practices include weight training, conditioning and practicing skills and team plays.
The off-season is an opportunity for mental and physical recovery. Athletes can also use the time for strength training and conditioning to reduce injuries when official practices begin again, according to Nyack College. Baseball players in the NCAA can take advantage of the forced time away from their regular teams and practices to improve their own skills. NCAA rules and regulations allow baseball players to play on independent, amateur teams without restrictions.
Basketball tryouts will allow you to evaluate which players coming out for your team will work the hardest and have the most talent. Tryouts also allow you the opportunity to gauge a player’s attitude toward the coaching staff and teammates and see who makes a good fit for the team. Develop a tryout plan that covers all the offensive and defensive fundamentals over the course of a few days to give each player a fair opportunity to show you his or her ability before you make cuts and build your final roster.
The shell drill is one of the most effective team defense drills as it teaches players correct rotation and proper help defense positioning. Place four offensive players on the outside of the three point line and assign a defensive player to each. Allow the offense to pass the ball while the defense shifts into position on each pass. Once your players have the basic movements down

, allow the offense to cut to the basket and move without the ball. For individual defense purposes, pair players up and have them play one-on-one to half-court, zig-zagging from the sideline to the foul lane. After reaching half-court, allow the offensive player to attempt to score on the defender.
A successful basketball player works hard to master the fundamentals. Since basketball is a game that requires players to dribble and pass well, ball handling drills focusing on these skills will help you evaluate players. Stationary dribbling drills such as figure 8 dribbles, between the leg dribbling and crossover dribbling can go a long way in helping you determine a player’s ball handling ability. Full court dribbling relays and zig-zag dribbling with a defender will simulate game situations and also allow you to determine who can handle the ball the most effectively. Simple passing drills such as partner passing, the three-man weave and the four corners passing drill are also recommended.
A team can play great defense, but it will have a hard time winning games without players who can put the ball in the basket. Shooting drills should be done without defense so that players learn how to shoot the basketball and score. Learning the fundamentals of shooting will influence a young player’s success as he or she gets older. Power layups, two line shooting, partner shooting and form shooting will give you the opportunity to teach proper shooting technique while giving your players the opportunity to improve and show you what they’ve got.
A player may have great individual ability when doing drills, but there is no better way to evaluate a player’s skill level than letting him or her play against other players who are trying out. Divide the teams evenly. Pair up players by how well they match up against each other and allow them to play five on five full court games. This will allow you to see if a player can translate his or her individual talent into a game situation.
