Oak Park Open Cup
We are excited to announce the Second Annual Oak Park Open Cup,4v4 soccer tournament, which will take place on Saturday July 27th at Ridgeland Common.
The Oak Park Open Cup is fun, one-day street style soccer tournament for boys and girls in the U8, U10, U12 and U14 age brackets. You can create your own teams with friends, team mates or neighbors. The open Cup is great way to bring our soccer community together for the purpose of having fun and raising money to support local charities. We look forward to having you be part of it.
Thanks to all of the Edge families who participated in our donation program this year – it was a huge success! We collected 112 pairs of soccer shoes, over 100 Chicago Edge game jerseys, 87 soccer balls, and many other valuable items for donation. In total, we collected twice as much gear as we did last year, the first year of this donation program.
Six extra-large storage containers of our donations will be shipped soon to the Decouverte Soccer Club in Theis, Senegal. Once the equipment arrives in Senegal, we will give you an update (with photos) on how the equipment is being used by the Decouverte Club. Special thanks to Julia and Evan Max, who once again cleaned the soccer shoes, tagged each pair with Chicago Edge labels, and helped organize and pack all of the donations.
For regular outdoor league games the system sends out automatic game reminders via email 48 hours before an event. (Text reminders - if a cell # AND provider has been entered in your account - will go out 2.5 hours prior to an event)
Those are the easiest ways to RSVP as the email contains a simple YES or NO button.
(those reminders are sent out even if you have already RSVP’d for an event - I guess the system wants to give you the option to change your status)
Often though the coaches need to know sooner the status of your child, especially when it comes to tournaments as lots of paperwork has to be turned in, which takes time to prepare.
For those situations you can set your status in advance.
Simply log into your Edge account. Once logged in, you will see your Family Account.
Next to your player is a small calendar icon.
Click on that and it will take you to all events for his/her team.
On any event click the little Thumbs Up icon and on the subsequent screen you can set attendance for your child
Note: There can be issues when you have more than 1 player. If you have been viewing another teampage and then go through the steps outlined above, it can be that you won’t see the RSVP screen. When that happens, make sure that the CORRECT team is displayed above the events. If not, make sure you select your child’s team from the dropdown menu above the events. That usually takes care of the problem. If you still experience problems, don’t hesitate to shoot me an
SI App: Another option to RSVP is to make use of the free app that comes with our web system provider. The app is called SI Play (Sports Illustrated Play) and is pretty popular amongst our families. Simply go to your usual app store and locate the app, install it and log in the same way you would on the Edge webpage. The app will automatically recognize what team to display.
Note: There is a known issue though with the app when starting a new season. Your child’s team is not always updated automatically. If you see the previous season’s team, simply log out and log back in. If it’s still wrong, delete the app and reinstall it. That usually solves that issue.
