CORRECTED: New Tryout Times – Same Days

CORRECTION: Apologies – in an earlier post, tryout days were listed as being in August. They are still in September on the 20th and 27th.

EDGE Club Tryouts, originally scheduled from 6pm to 8pm on Saturdays, September 20 and 27 will be rescheduled one hour earlier to 5pm to 7pm on those same days.

PLEASE KEEP IN MIND that we are filling teams via our Open Gyms. Many teams are full. So there will be a select few open positions on many teams. And we’ll likely be looking at a specific position for those teams. So we highly encourage anyone who wants to play to come in to our Open Gyms!

5 Million Gmail accounts hacked – passwords leaked

Hi EDGE families. It’s Coach Walter, here. For those of you who don’t know what I do when I’m not coaching, I am a software engineer with experience in web and information security. Yes, it’s true that over 5 million gmail accounts have been hacked. But DON’T use the “isleaked” site first released on the blogoshpere to confirm if your account has been compromised. NEVER check your account on a site that request that you put in your username and password to check if it was compromised. That’s just a trap to steal your identity – which is what I’m guessing that isLeaked site was doing. If you used the isLeaked page, you’ve likely created a new leak. CHANGE YOUR PASSWORD IMMEDIATELY! No matter what haveibeenpwned.com or knowem.com says. To safely check your account, use https://haveibeenpwned.com or http://securityalert.knowem.com. Or even better, just change your gmail passwords along with any other account assoicated to your gmail where you used the same password. Please feel free to share.
