Senegal Equipment Donation
Thanks again to all the Edge families who participated in our equipment donation program last June. We are happy to report that the equipment (including 90 pairs of boots, 30 balls, and lots of kits) is now in good use with the DeCouvert Football Club in Thies, Senegal.
The photos and short videos below show our donations being distributed to players in the DeCouvert Club. Your donations really have made a difference for this club and the kids it serves. Please continue to save soccer shoes and other equipment, and we will once again organize a collection during registration in June. A special thanks to Brendan Max for organizing.
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.
