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).
