I downloaded the App, now what?
The first time you open the App, you’ll need a Redeem Code. If you are on an NLSA team, your manager can provide that. For everyone else, email firstname.lastname@example.org
What if my child doesn’t have a cell phone to run the App? Or I don’t want to install the App on my child’s phone?
That’s no problem. Run the app on your phone, and then connect with your team manager on the best way to get her/him a screenshot of the certificate on game/practice days?
Can we run the App on multiple devices?
Absolutely. Just share the login credentials with whoever is using that device, that way they can complete the questionnaire or pull up the certificate any time.
Is there an easy way to save my e-mail and password to make logging in quicker?
Sort of. While the App doesn't use TouchID or FaceID, for those of you with an iPhone there is a work around that, while not perfect, speeds up the process. It's also great if you don't want to share the login info (or make your player remember it). Click here to see how to set that up.
If my child has the app on their phone, do they need to do the Questionnaire themselves?
Nope. If you use the same login credentials for the App on your phone and your child’s phone, then you can complete the Questionnaire on your phone and they can retrieve later on on their phone.
Can my child or anyone else in our family appear in more than one account?
Yes, there's no issue with that at all. So if you have multiple "accounts" in your family, and people are listed on the User List in each of those accounts, that's fine. Child care help, grandparents, they are all welcome and able to set up an account. At the end of the day, what's most important is that we have a Green Certificate with the player or attendees name on it. It does't matter which account generated that Certificate.
Can my child practice/play if we haven’t provided the Green Certificate?
Unfortunately, no. But not to worry, you can complete the Questionnaire at the field, and show the certificate to your Team Manager. Your child will then be permitted to join the practice/game.
I made a mistake in setting up a User on my account. How do I fix that?
No worries. Just send an email to email@example.com and we can either fix the error or remove the User. This is only for errors when you create a User within your account. If you made a mistake completing the Questionnaire, you can redo the Questionnaire.
How do I do that? How do I redo a Questionnaire if I answered incorrectly or if circumstances changed later in the day?
That’s easy. Just open up the App and on the User List, if you are using an iPhone or iOS device, just swipe from the right edge of the screen towards the left on that User’s listing and you will see a Redo button appear. If you are using an Android device, press and hold on the User’s listing until it highlights, and then swipe from right to left.
I filled out the Questionnaire but it's not letting me submit. What gives?
That happens when one of the required questions isn't answered. The most common culprit is the Team Selection question at the very top of the form. Scroll back up, and make sure you've selected the appropriate team from the drop down menu.
I completed the Questionnaire and got a Red certificate. What does that mean?
It means you won’t be able to attend that day’s NLSA event, and we suggest you consult with a medical professional for further guidance. Please remember, it’s nothing personal. We’re just trying to do the best we can to provide the safest environment for our players, fans, coaches, and referees.
How about a Yellow Certificate? What’s that mean?
Simply put, there was a response in your Questionnaire that needs follow-up, and until we get that squared away, the individual cannot attend that day’s event. If you do get the Yellow Certificate, you’ll need to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Although that email address is monitored regularly, it’s not constantly monitored, so if you wait to reach out and it’s too close to game/practice time, we may not be able to address the issue before the start of the event, and if the issue isn't addressed, the individual will not be permitted to attend that day's event. So the sooner you reach out to us that day, the better.
Why are you asking for my contact info when I first use the App?
Good question. The contact information (name, address, email address, phone number) for the adult setting up the account is used solely to comply with our township's contact tracing requirements. This is in line with the Guidelines from the NJ Department of Health on Youth Sports, which requires all Club Sports to cooperate with Local Health Departments regarding contact tracing. The information is put into a spreadsheet nightly that is sent to the Township so that in the event someone at the practice/game later tests positive for Covid-19, the township Health Department can begin contact tracing. We are not otherwise accessing, selling, using, or distributing the information. In fact, we're not even looking at it. The system on the back-end creates the spreadsheet and we forward that to the designated representative at the Township.
I have another question that you haven’t addressed yet, how do I get an answer.
Real easy, just send an email to email@example.com and we’ll be happy to help.
