Soccer- Player Card Printing on Plain Card Stock Updated March 25

Massachusetts Youth Soccer Association will now allow you to print on plain card stock instead of the USYSA supplied stock. Those of you in other states will need to check with your league or state association.

You will need to purchase Avery 5390, "Name Badge Insert Refills." There are 8 on a sheet. Amazon has them for around $17 for 400. When I checked Staples, it was $24.

You will have to email parents on the teams afffected and instruct them to login and go to their family page. Once there, they will click on the child's name and upload a digital head shot. They will only have to do this once or at least until they age out of the picture.

Here is the Tutorial Part 1 - Member Picture Editing

The picture of the player or coach must be 200 pixels at its longest edge. It is OK to be taller than wide although a square is fine. This tutorial will walk you through preparing a picture. You should share this link with your parents and coaches . They do not have to leg in to see it.

Rules for Blast Email Attachments

Blast email allows you to add an attachment, subject to these limitaitons:

1. The attachment must be less than 1 megabyte. That will eliminate most color documents.

2. Commercial flyers are not allowed. It turns into an almost automatic spam message and slows down our system.

Please Do Not Send Sponsor or Commercial Email Using the Blast Function

Sending an email blast naming a sponsor, a 20% off sale, a discount or any other related email is a violation of the can-spam act since the sender is not the company that is offering it. In some case, we are seeing a 10% bounce rate which means the ISPs consider it potential spam.

At least 4 clubs have sent this type of email this mornining alone. The result may be a slowdown on delivering all email to Verizon, Comcast, Yahoo, Gmail and AOL domains.

AdminSports & Heartbleed Security Update

On April 7, 2014, researchers disclosed a vulnerability in a technology called OpenSSL that powers encryption across much of the internet. The vulnerability is commonly known as the "OpenSSL Heartbleed Flaw."

Our team took immediate action to secure AdminSports infrastructure against this flaw. We closed any exposure that might have existed and wanted to let you know that AdminSports is not vulnerable to the Heartbleed flaw.

Although we have no reason to believe that any part of our service has been improperly accessed due to this vulnerability, as a matter of best practice we would like to recommend that all our customers reset their passwords. To reset your password, visit My Account and change your password in the Login Details section of your Account Page.

Thank you for being a great customer. Have a great season!
