Can I get a FREE Web site?
Yes. During the site building process, you will be asked to choose between the Basic PLUS and FREE levels of service.
Do I need an access code to get started?
No. Rosters will not be managed on your Web site. Therefore, access codes are not required in order to create your Web site. Once you create a site, you will be asked to register for your site. You will be able to send invitations or provide admin access to others in your league.
Are the Web sites secure?
Visit www.eteamz.com/company/privacy/children for details.
Since roster information will not be managed on your Web site, the listing of personal player information on your league Web site is only at the league's option and for local use. Even if leagues opt to post names for communications purposes, only the creator of the League Home Page and the member(s) of your league management who have been specifically granted "Administrative Rights" will be able to access this information.
Additionally, site access can be restricted to specific areas, so that some volunteers may only be able to enter league schedule information or create league news stories without being able to view any league or team player lists that may be listed on the site.
Our Active Team Sports servers are housed in a state-of-the-art network operations center that provides a high level of physical and network security to your data. The site is constantly monitored for disruptions, and we perform internal and external security audits to further protect all sensitive information.
Are there admin only areas on the Web site?
Yes. If you're an admin for your site, you will automatically be taken to the main admin work area of your site when logging in via the Admin link on the main site page(s). Only admins will have access to this area. From this work area, you will be able to "preview" any page you are working on to see what your visitors will see and learn about the latest tools and tips about using your Web site.
What's my role as a League Information Officer?
LIOs are still responsible for league wide implementation of the online programs offered. This takes coordination among other league officers and team volunteers.
Is there an IO Support Center?
There will be an all new area for admins to go for help. The area is called Home Town Little League and you can use it as a guide to building your own league site. Check out all the features by visiting www.eteamz.com/hometownllb.
Do we report our officers via our Web site?
No, the reporting of your league officers will be reported through the Little League Data Center.
Click here to access the LLB Data Center.
Do we manage league rosters on our new Web site?
No. A Little League Data Center has been created for this purpose and your Little League Web site will be separate from the Data Center.
Click here to access the LLB Data Center.
Will we be able to promote our local sponsors?
YES...and there's even more functionality with your LLB PLUS site, when you choose the "Advertising" option. Give yourself the ability to put up multiple ad banners for ALL of your sponsors - and set them in rotation. You may also set the priority level for the banners, so some banners can display more than others!
How will we communicate with the members of our league?
With an LLB PLUS site, you can create email lists - into special group categories - for all of your members. Email a group of people (by category) all at the same time. Inform a specific group (like your board members) or anyone at once about updates, schedule changes or any news you have.
Is MessageCast available?
Yes, MessageCast is available on both FREE and PLUS Web sites. Click here for details.
Will parents have to give permission for children to join?
Yes, for those kids that are 12 years of age or younger. We provide a safe, fun, personalized, and informative online community for connecting players, coaches and families to the sports they love. To uphold this community, we are committed to safeguarding our users' privacy, especially the privacy of our child users. In an effort to put parents in the driver's seat, the Federal Trade Commission has established new rules for Web site operators to make sure that kids' privacy is protected while they are online. These rules, which went into effect on April 21, 2000, are part of the 1998 Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).
The law requires that Web site operators post comprehensive privacy policies on their sites, notify parents about their information practices, and obtain parental consent before collecting any personal information from children under the age of 13 or allowing kids under 13 to publicly post personal information such as on Web pages, bulletin boards or chat rooms without their parent's consent. For kids, this means that they will not have free reign of all that the Web has to offer, unless their parent provides consent.
Do teams register for their own Web site, or should the league set one up for them?
It is recommended that each team set up an LLB Web site on its own, so that they can choose the type of site that best suits its own needs. Since there is not a flow of team roster information from the league to the team, teams do not have to wait for the league to set up a site, or grant them access. Links to your team site can be easily posted on the league site.
Alternately, team sites can be created as part of league site. However, special invitations from the league are required in order to gain access. Additionally, team sites that are part of league sites will be subject to site capacity limitations by the league
