ReBBL News and the Community

The News Team has done a great job of helping to support our growing community. The 33 coaches that have published over 350 articles in the last year deserve a shout out. We will recognize some of the top posts below, as well as who those coaches are with links to their profile and you can read their articles. This year would not have been a success without their support and their willingness to help provide content for the community.

ReBBL News was only a pet project

Before there was a news website, each region published weekly newspapers. As the chief editor for the “REL Round Up”, which focused only on news for REL, the newspaper took 10-20 hours of work just to layout and add images each week. This was not sustainable for myself or my design guy Phil-is-Offical. Building the newspapers using a LaTeX type engine in order to auto-format the design helped, but more and more time was being spent on repetitive tasks. Eventually, I decided it was time to build a website that could give more flexibility to writers and they could publish on their own schedule.

Over the year, ReBBL News has gone through 3 major website redesigns and overhauls. Beyond just changing how it looks, there is now a way to easily post videos as well.

Next season tune in for the home of ReBBL Recaps. Here coaches will find their weekly division recaps.
