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.

calloutDates

Create a layout container with the custom class calloutDates. Add any number of link elements within the layout container to create a bar that lists links horizontally. Example on the USA CUP website homepage.

respTwo

Create a two column layout container with the custom class respTwo. This style is designed to be used on the home pages. Styling is similar to a tab element.

respTabs

Add the custom class respTabs to a tabbed element with two tabs with one columns. This will hide the tabs on desktop but show them on mobile. Style is designed for home pages.

Example Subtitle Headline

Example Headline

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Curabitur facilisis nibh velit, id bibendum nunc ornare at. Suspendisse eget neque eu tellus pharetra tincidunt id eu risus.

Champions crowned at 21st annual Stick It to Cancer hockey tournament

Annual tournament at the Schwan Super Rink raises funds to benefit breast cancer research

Blaine, Minn. (April 16, 2019) – Many of the players at the Stick-it to Cancer hockey tournament at the Schwan Super Rink, April 12-14, remembered last year’s tournament and the epic weather it dished out. Over 20-inches of snow fell during the tournament weekend forcing cancellation of some games.

This year, with much relief, the big April snowstorm came two days ahead of the tournament, allowing time for the roads to be cleared in plenty of time for the puck drop. In the end, the 45 teams playing in the 21st annual cancer benefit tournament had clear roads and clear rinks to skate on. And a cause to believe in.

Flashback: the second opening day of Major League Soccer in Minnesota nearly brings a repeat weather performance

04/12/2019, 12:15pm CDT
By Barclay Kruse, NSC Chief Communications Officer

Months ago, as the date approached for the April 13 opening of Allianz Field in St. Paul, the new home of Minnesota United FC, a few of us on the staff at the National Sports Center (NSC) began whispering, “Wouldn’t it be great if the weather was just like it was two years ago?”

Perhaps we were being a little sadistic, but there was also a little romance behind that wish.

Blaine, Minn. (April 10, 2019) – Snow may be in the forecast this week, but that won’t deter the 45 teams playing in the 21st annual Stick-it to Cancer hockey tournament at the National Sports Center this weekend. After all, they are playing for a higher cause – finding a cure for breast cancer.

The annual Stick It to Cancer hockey tournament, set for April 12-14, will draw both youth and adult female teams, as well as Co-Ed teams, to play for a championship, but more importantly, to raise funds to fight breast cancer.

“At most tournaments the goal is to win a championship,” said tournament director Kathy Brodzinski. “And that’s important at Stick-it to Cancer for sure. But our teams never lose sight of the greater purpose -- the mission of fighting breast cancer. I think that makes winning a championship even more meaningful.”
