Anybody heard of it? Had any experience with it? I am thinking about implementing it at my YMCA and possibly all of the Y's in the region. From what I have seen, it looks legit. Any feedback would be appriciated.

Question Advertising on craigslist?

Craigslist is a free great cheap online flea market How many of you advertise on clist? Do you get any clients off of clist? It wouldn't hurt to run an ad on there, but it is a cheap swap meet site, where everyone goes there to buy cheap.

becoming a coach

I played soccer for 13 years and would love to be a coach for a soccer team. What qualifications are needed at various levels? elementary and high school? Would a CSCS suffice? What kind of pay do these coaches make?
