  • ENTREPRENEURS AIM TO LINK TEAMS TO ATHLETIC CAMPS

              TX-based Rebound Sports, which is involved in youth
         sports camps and clinics and headed by Bart Nolde and Earl
         Fitzgerald, was profiled by Rozel Sciulli of the TAMPA
         TRIBUNE.  Fitzgerald and Nolde have "hopes of cornering the
         market on athletic instruction."  Rebound Sports first "took
         root" in Tampa, and found a 50-50 partner in the Yankees,
         which bought 5,000 shares of the company's common stock. 
         Fitzgerald and Nolde have developed a five-year, seven-part
         business plan for Rebound Sports, which "begins with youth
         camps involving 15 or more different sports and more than
         300 events a year involving about 33,000 children."  It will
         eventually include adult and day camps, programs for the
         physically and mentally challenged, a product line and a
         scholarship program in each city.  The goal at the end of
         the five years is to expand to 15 cities with each of the
         seven parts at every site.  Each category is estimated to
         net $1.2M annually.  Talks with the Bulls "are in the early
         stages" and the Astros "may be re-visited after showing
         interest in the early years" (TAMPA TRIBUNE, 1/5).
