A few of us in Sheboygan have been working hard to keep foos alive with the intent of bringing up the next generation of foosers. Our league has been growing stead for the past 4-5 years and this year we've been able to grow to seven 4-man teams this year. (We were actually just 1 person short of having eight 4-mans teams and had to turn 3 people away) We've got one person traveling from Milwaukee, another from Fon du Lac, and a regular sub from the Juneau area.

In case anyone is interested, this is what we are doing-
- making efforts to get to know the recent college grads at work. Many played foos at school and are interested in continuing.
-balancing our teams in strength. We try to even the A players with the B players so that everyone stays competitive.
-focusing on having fun, not bickering over specific calls or no calls. No griping about "slop". Friendship and playing the game is more important than gaining a single game of foosball.
-playing every other Thursday (vs every Thursday) makes it easier for those with families and busy lives to commit to league. Our season goes from the first of Oct to the first week in April.

I encourage all of you who are in leagues or just interested in foosball, to think outside of the box to keep the sport alive and growing.
