Passaic County Coaches on TWITTER ---------->
Please CONTINUE TO bear with us ! Our host (Homestead) is currently undergoing maintenance - transferring the data center and somewhere along the line there was a hiccup and many of the desktop SiteBuilder users (US) are unable to access their programs. Some can log in and make edits, but are unable to publish. This is especially true of big sites, and we have 247 pages! The maintenance is NOW scheduled to last through the end of December.
As we are able to make changes to the Home page, a very time consuming endeavor with this problem, we will do so. Our first priority is our county tournaments, followed by the Daily Scores.
