Ip banning only works on people who don't know how to change it.
Do you know any of the kids? Do they play for any of the teams or are they just random kids who act like jerks?

That doesn't help the problem. A couple of determined trolls can shut down relevant discussion in any thread on a forum.

This sounds like a case of John Gabriel's Greater Internet Dickwad Theory. Showing up at their field and asking whats up with the e-rage in a non hostile manner could embarrass them into letting it go for a while. (Go for genuine confusion, as if you don't understand trolling at all. (but why would you bother someone online? Isn't that a little silly?")
If they're on a team, talking to their team captain, field owner and any other local sponsors about their antics (with links to back you up) would be a good move if that doesn't work.

I've talked to a former sponsor. He dropped them. For the same reason. Checking into other local sponsers.

I'm not sure how knowledgable the forum admin is, but:

Ban the username.
If the associated ip returns with a problem username again ban it.
If the associated ip returns with a problem username again, contact the provider.
The provider will almost always freeze that customer for up to 30 days.

We have done this on our field forum, it works.
