HELPFUL TIPS FOR FAMILIES

MOBILE APP

Sport Ngin Mobile App

Sport Ngin has a mobile app for your Apple or Android device.  With the app, you can follow your team's schedule and other team information.  You can download from your app store.

There is a link to the Mobile App on your team page, or see Sport Ngin's website for more details. http://www.sportngin.com/mobile

To add you team, click "Add a team" and enter the Team ID, which can be found in the upper right corner of your team page (by the link to "Download our Mobile App).  Or you can search for "Owatonna Fastpitch" and look for your team name (i.e. Crush Orange, Crush Black).

SYNCH YOUR CALENDAR

iCalendar (iCal)

Sport Ngin allows users to subscribe to iCalendar (iCal) feeds, which easily sync HFC calendar events with your personal calendar.  The iCalendar Feeds are continuously synced with the most up-to-date calendars on your website, keeping subscribers aware of the latest additions and updates.

For more information on iCalendar Feeds see

How to add an ICal Feed to a Smart Phone

To subscribe to a particular team's calendar.  Access the team's page and click the iCal icon below the calendar.  This will show a window with the link which will need to be copied into your calendar software.

 

If your family has children on multiple teams, you can combine the feeds into one.  To accomplish this, access the team page for one of your players.

  • On the team page, click the View All link under the calendar.  This will take you to the calendar page with the team as the selected "tag".
  • To add the other team(s), click Show Tag Menu below the blue bar indicating Currently Selected Tags.
  • Once that is expanded, you can select the appropriate team calendars you wish.
  • After selecting the appropriate teams, click the Subscribe to iCal Feed at the bottom of the calendar to access the link for copying to your calendar. 
     

ADDING ADDITIONAL EMAILS

Additional Emails for Communications

A player can only be tied to one primary Sport Ngin account.  This is the account used when you registered your player.  The primary email address for that account will receive emails sent from coaches on the Team pages.  If you would like to add an additional email for your child's team communications, there are two options.

  1. Add the email as a secondary email to your account.  Sport Ngin has a help topic that explains the steps here
    Secondary email addresses only receive profile notifications sent by an organization (i.e. from Coaches/Team pages).
  2. If the other email is tied to another Sport Ngin account (i.e. both parents created their own Sport Ngin account with their email), the account can be linked to the Player's Profile.  To do this:
  • use the drop down arrow next to your user id to access the account menu
  • click on the Profile option
  • select the Profile you would like to link an account to
  • click Add next to Linked Accounts
  • specify the email address of the other user.  Note if that email address does not have a Sport Ngin account, they will be invited to create one.

Option 1 is an easy and straight forward solution that does not require creating and maintaining a Sport Ngin account.
