The $3.5 million gym that opens at the Edgewood Recreation and Community Center next month could provide an ideal venue for a sport that proponents insist promotes fitness and wellbeing while instilling pride and a sense of accomplishment in participants. Councilman Dion F. Guthrie, who represents the southern area of the county, wants to start a boxing program in the nearly 11,000-square-foot gym. The full basketball court, with bleachers, could make room for a portable boxing ring, he said.

Team Kaya's dragon boat sped quickly past others racing along the waters of Baltimore's harbor Saturday morning, leaving other teams to wonder if it had a secret weapon. "It's that girl in the front. Look how small she is," said one man, wondering out loud if smaller team members mean a lighter, faster boat. The 17 teams competing in Saturday's event hosted by The Baltimore Dragon Boat Club at Tide Point Marina had spent weeks training for the grueling races, in which they paddle at top speed for 500 meters - at least two minutes for most boats.

So are the fishing poles. Now, the Severna Park store, part ofthe Baltimore business established in 1904, has taken the last of the tennis rackets and badminton nets off the shelves.It seems that in the recession-plagued 1990s, fewer sports enthusiasts are shelling out money for luxuries like golf, tennis, squash, croquet and racquetball.

The Washington Bullets and Capitals said yesterday that the television rights to their games have been purchased by Bethesda-based Home Team Sports, where the games have aired for the past 12 years.HTS officials said the contract would run at least past the year 2000. Sources familiar with the negotiations have said the deal would pay more than $10 million a year between the clubs, up from about $6 million they currently receive.The marriage appears to be forced, since the clubs had received an offer from Fox and TCI and only stayed with HTS because the regional sports channel had clauses in their contracts that gave it the right to match.

Every child needs to move, but not every child likes sports. Some don't welcome yet another rules-dominated, adult-run activity. Some lack athletic talent. Some have parents who can't afford the fees or can't chauffeur them to practice. But sports or no sports, every child still needs to move -- and it's a need our world conspires to deny. From schools with shrinking recess times to streets without sidewalks to homes filled with mesmerizing screens, today's environment encourages immobility.

These are strange times indeed. In Greece, all team sports have been suspended for a two-week period after hooligan violence led to the death of a fan before a Greek Cup women's volleyball game. In Jamaica, the British coach of Pakistan's national cricket team was found dead recently under suspicious circumstances after the team suffered a World Cup loss to Ireland. Next thing you know, our NHL players will start braining each other with their hockey sticks and our NBA players will start chasing fans into the loge section.

The Orioles signed 28-year-old outfielder Jason Dubois as a minor league free agent in December.

Tradition. In the sport of lacrosse, and for those who are passionate about the game, tradition is a word that means practically everything. Where did you go to high school? Whom did your brother, your father and your sister play for? How many times did your family make the trip to watch the Final Four? Maryland or Johns Hopkins, whose side are you on? Do you remember Paul and Gary Gait? Do you know the story of Morgan State and the Ten Bears? Does Boys' Latin vs. St. Paul's mean more to you than Ravens vs. Steelers?

The soccer tournament on this page was a "classic," which may seem odd, especially if you are getting acquainted with youth sports. But use of that word has meaning if you are into youth soccer, which like all team sports for kids comes with an array of competitive jargon. Here is something of a primer on how youth team sports are organized: AGE GROUPS: Players as young as 4 or 5 begin in "clinics," or introductory play. Age groups evolve into "rec-level" and then "travel" teams for players through high school age. Through it all, the idea is to keep things competitive with players of similar coordination, experience, physical development and ability.
