How to start a school sports club or team

Interest can best be aroused and maintained by organizing a club from the zealous members of the archery class, if such a class is already in existence either as a part of the required physical education program or as an intramural or extra-mural activity.

It is not necessary to start with a large group of members. In fact, it is preferable to organize the club around a few deeply interested members at first, until the management of the club is firmly established. Officers of the club should be elected to preside at meetings, to take charge of arranging tournaments and regular archery activities, to take care of equipment, publicity, and membership, and to repair old and construct new equipment.

Are the Houston Astros racist?

It’s trendy in the news to point out the Houston Astros are the first team to play in the world series in the last 50 years without a black player. The last team without a black player on the roster was the 1953 Yankees.

Does it matter? It seems to matter to Joe Morgan who said:

Of course I noticed it. How could you not? But they’re not the only ones. There are two or three teams that didn’t have any African-American players this year.

I didn’t notice.
