COACH FAQs:

 

I can’t see my roster or I see last year’s roster in my SI Play App?

Uninstall the App & then re-install it.  

If that doesn’t fix the problem, please try the help options below.

Note:  You will not see any team details until rosters are posted (you will get an email when this happens)

 

I’m having trouble using the SI Play app?

REMINDER: YOU CAN ALSO SEE ROSTERS, SCHEDULES, TEAM MESSAGES, ETC. ALL THROUGH THE ESMLL WEBSITE.  LOG INTO YOUR ACCOUNT, THEN CLICK “TEAM WEBSITE” NEXT TO YOUR TEAM NAME. IT HAS ALL OF THE SAME FEATURES AS THE APP.

 

Please try the Self-Help options below before contacting league administrators. Admins do not have any additional training in web/app support.

 

In the SI Play App:  on the menu at the bottom, click “More”.  Scroll down to “Help”. You can click then click “Self-Help” for answers to many common questions; or click “App Support” to contact the SI Play support team.  They respond to questions very quickly.

How do I see what fields are available to schedule my practice?

NOTE! YOU CANNOT SEE FIELD AVAILABILITY IN THE APP! YOU MUST BE ON THE ESMLL WEBSITE!

 

Go the the esmlittleague.com homepage. On the menu at the top of the page click "Schedule". Click "Calendar View" on the view choices. From the drop down menus select Baseball or Softball. Leave the second drop down menu as "All Divisions". DO NOT select any of the "Hide" options.

 

Each day will show a list of games/practices already scheduled. You can click on each item to see what fields are already taken.

 

NOTE: The High School & Eastport fields are reserved for Softball. The South Street, North Street & Turf fields are used for baseball.

 

If you cannot find a field for the day/time you want you can still practice - just use the grass! Every shed has a set of throw-down bases. (Also see “small space” practice guides at the bottom of  "The Perfect Practice Plan" doc)




 

When/How will I find out if my game is Rained-out?

Practices:  Coaches can decide if they want to cancel a practice, however if field conditions are extremely bad the league may cancel ALL events to preserve the fields.  

Games:  Coaches cannot cancel games.  League Administrators will announce cancellations via a league wide text/email at 4pm on weekdays and 8am on weekends.  You can also check the Rainouts/Cancellations link on the website main menu.

**If you are playing a team from a different league, please call/text that coach immediately to let them know if games are canceled**

 

When will my game be re-scheduled?

Baseball:  Games will be automatically rescheduled and will appear on your team calendar.

 

Softball:  Please contact the opposing coach and find a date that you are both available. Contact Sara Palace with the new date. She will confirm if there is a field available & update your team calendar.

 

Please note:  League Administrators spend countless hours making up game schedules.  Rescheduling is time consuming and involves coordinating multiple teams, umpires, etc.  We often have many make-ups to schedule due to weather. Therefore, please do not request games to be rescheduled due to personal schedule conflicts - all teams have at least 2 coaches; if one is not available you can still keep your game as scheduled.


 

What should I do if there is no umpire at my game?

If an umpire is not at the field by 10 mins before game time please call Jon Plesent (631.767.0591) fo baseball or Sara Palace (631.466.4263) for softball.  We will get in touch with the umpire company.
