Custom Classes

Callouts

To create a callouts layout container on the home page create a layout container and add the custom class callouts. Add 5 text block elements within the container. For each text block element add a single line subtitle, an image at the minimum size of 300px x 245px and up to 4 links or text within the text field. Use original image if sized at 300px x 245px.

heroImage

On the homepage to create a heroImage create a layout container with the custom class heroImage. Add a text block element within this layout container. The subtitle is used for the display text and the image attached is used for the background image. The text in the text field is used as the sub line. Make sure to use images with a height greater than 360px and a width greater than 1500px.

displayImg

To add a custom page header image add the class displayImg to a photo element and it will be inserted into the header.

Suggested image sizes for exact cropped view:

  1. Max: 1267px x 300px.
  2. Min: 950px x 300px

If you want more of the image to display and not rely on a cropped height of 300px you can use any image with a height higher than 300px and a width at least 1267px. The image will be adjusted to fit well enough in the space. For example you can have an image at 1267 x 600px to see more of the image.

accordion

Create a layout container and add the custom class accordion to the layout container. Add only text block elements within this layout container. All other page element types will be hidden as the accordion feature only supports text block elements at the moment.

Make sure to add the subtitle for each text block element as the script relies on this to create the button.

rightPanel

To add content into the right Panel create a layout container and add the class rightPanel to it. This content will be added to the top of the right Panel.

To override the default lower rightPanel updated through the site guide add the class rightPanel static to a layout container on that page. Make sure to use this only on one of the layout containers for that page. If you want the rightPanel static to be empty simply create an empty layout container with the custom class rightPanel static.

The default lower rightPanel located on the site guide has the classes rightPanel static default. This helps the code separate it from other rightPanel static layout containers that may potentially live on the site guide.

To manage a set of rightPanel static layout containers you could create a set here on the site guide and mirror them manually on the desired page. Or you could choose to manage them from content templates.

regBtn

To add a custom registration button create a link page element and add the custom class regBtn to it. This button will be inserted to the right of the breadcrumbs on desktop and to the bottom of it on mobile.

preLayout

To add a double column child page style create a layout container and add the class preLayout. Within each double column layout container add a single photo element, a text block element and a link element in that order. Example use: Tournaments overview pages.

  • Recommended Single Image size: 505 x 225 px

preText

To create a custom styled preText block element create a Text Block Element and add the class preText to it. The Subtitle is hidden by default for this custom class and you need to add an H3 Heading into the text area.

To enable the subtitle add the class preText addH3

If you want to use the preText style with out an added image use preText noImg.

sponsorBar

To create a sponsor bar on the bottom of an interior page create a one column layout container with the custom class sponsorBar and add each single photo element within the layout container. Make sure they are transparent PNGS.

Recommended image size:

  1. 100px x 87px.

Counting down: 35th USA CUP kicks off in four weeks

06/14/2019, 11:30am CDT
By Barclay Kruse, NSC Chief Communications Officer

Registration numbers look strong, and 49th and 50th states are in the fold!

Blaine, Minn. (June 13, 2019) – With the kick-off of the 35th annual USA CUP youth soccer tournament at the National Sports Center (NSC) just four weeks away, the tournament is again tracking to attract close to 1,200 teams.

Set for July 12-20, 2019, USA CUP is the largest soccer tournament in the Western Hemisphere. Last year’s tournament attracted 1,150 teams, the third largest in the history of the tournament. The high mark for team registration was set in 2016, with 1,178 teams. Teams are still being accepted into the tournament at this date, but it looks like the final total of accepted teams will again fall in the same range as recent years.

“Until the NSC can add more playing fields, the tournament’s capacity is right about where we have ended up the last four years,” said USA CUP director Jen Een. “We are optimistic the NSC will build additional fields in the future, which will allow us to accept more teams.”

Aaron Schmidt, USA CUP Recruiting Director, reports that 19 countries are solidly registered for the 2019 tournament, as of this date.

“Some international teams are still working to secure visas, so we may add an additional country or two,” said Schmidt.

Here’s the early look at the international line-up for the countries confirmed for the 2019 tournament:

Brazil, Canada, Cayman Islands, Costa Rica, Denmark, Ecuador, Haiti, Iceland, Jamaica, Japan, Liberia, Mexico, Nigeria, Panama, Peru, Puerto Rico, Sweden, Trinidad and Tobago and the U.S.

Project to install artificial turf on fields A3/A4 has begun

If you’ve visited the National Sports Center campus in the past week, you may have noticed that construction is underway on the installation of new artificial turf fields on fields A3 and A4.

Here’s an update on what’s happening.

The contractor, Dimke Excavating, has removed the black dirt from the site, and piled it on one long pile in the middle of the field. Currently, they are trucking the black dirt over to the north side of the campus. That removal process should be completed by the end of the week.

National Sports Center announces long-term partnership with Minnesota United

05/23/2019, 10:45am CDT
By Barclay Kruse, NSC Chief Communications Officer

The National Sports Center will remain the home of Minnesota United’s Training Ground for at least 15 years

GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn., (May 23, 2019) — The National Sports Center (NSC) and Minnesota United FC formally announced a partnership that will cement the NSC as the home of Minnesota United’s Training Ground and the home of soccer in Minnesota. The partnership will provide far-ranging and long-term support to soccer at all levels in the State of Minnesota, from youth to the professional level.

In continuing to make its home at the NSC, MNUFC has built a world-class locker room and robust training facility on the campus, including two dedicated full-sized natural grass training fields, an indoor training space, players’ lounge, workout room, treatment rooms and a full-service cafeteria. Additionally, the NSC offers offices for the sporting side of MNUFC — coaches from first team to the Development Academy as well as for training and player operations staff.   

Spring Lake Park Schools and the NSC partner to install artificial turf on two outdoor fields on the campus

05/21/2019, 4:15pm CDT
By Barclay Kruse, NSC Chief Communications Officer

Blaine, Minn. (May 21, 2019) – The National Sports Center (NSC) is excited to announce a partnership with Spring Lake Park Schools to install artificial turf on two of the NSC’s outdoor grass fields. The fields, currently designated A3 and A4, are located south of 105th Ave. NE, directly north of the Main Parking Lot, and northeast of Centerview Elementary School.

The district and the NSC will share the cost of the project, the components of which include artificial turf and lights on both fields, a scoreboard on A3 and improved fencing to keep balls from rolling into the adjacent parking lot. The budget for the entire project is approximately $2.2 million.

The fields will be configured for use by multiple sports – soccer, lacrosse, ultimate and potentially baseball.

The district will have priority use during normal school-day and after-school hours. The NSC will take over use during non-school use hours – typically evenings and weekends. The NSC will have access to the fields for its major tournaments, including USA CUP in July.

“This project is the latest example of the public benefit from the innovative public-public partnership between Spring Lake Park Schools and the NSC that began with the construction and opening of Centerview Elementary School last September.” said Todd Johnson, National Sports Center Executive Director.

Johnson pointed out that the NSC is moving forward on a program to eventually add up to 12 outdoor artificial turf fields on its campus. The first stage was the addition of two turf fields in the Stadium in 2018.

“Our partnership with the NSC continues to yield great things for our students,” said Superintendent Jeff Ronneberg. “By working together, we are able to provide facilities that our students can use for physical education classes and athletic practices, along with use by the community through the NSC.”

This project was approved by the Coon Creek Watershed District at its May 13 meeting. Construction will begin immediately, and the new fields should be ready in early August 2019.
