Sports Illustrated Play App Reviews

Great way to stay on top of your kids sports.

This app has kept our family In order through multiple sports seasons. Only problem is I can’t figure out where to see snacks schedule

Worst sports team app

Worst sports team app to use. Not user friendly. Team Snap App blows this away and I would recommend using that over this any day.

Failed App

This does not work well at all. There are plenty of other options- just don’t pick this one as you will regret your decision. And good luck contacting support for those of you who made the mistake to use SI. They don’t exist.

Deleting a family member

I do not like how when you delete a family member, they are still able to see/comment on everything. How do I fix this?

Horrible! Emailed, called for over 2 years never got a reply. WHY CAN SOMEONE NOT HELP FIX THIS SIMPLE MISTAKE. Do not understand why my name can not be changed from my daughters that is on there currently. Having 3 children playing sports and use the app it DOESNT ALLOW!

Maps to fields don’t work

Maps to fields take to a different state

Lack of compatibility

If you upload photos on a PC with the main site, you will not be able to view the photos on the mobile app


App would be fine if it worked...”network error” more often than not and I know others on the team have issues as well. We missed a practice because couldn’t get on to check messages/calendar.

Doesn’t auto sync

App will not automatically show daughter’s new teams unless I run a fresh install of the app.

Great idea if it worked

The app does not work

Difficult to local your team

Yep is but not very intuitive it is difficult to locate your team it takes a lot of time and only allows you to find a team after several hours

Less than stellar

The App is confusing, has a ton of useless advertisements and when messages are sent to you if you close them prior to reading them they are nowhere to be found. You have to go back in through the email link. When you need to reset your password because you forgot it over a year, you can get a link sent to your email, but it just logs you in. This means that every single time you have to get a link and access through email instead of just getting to reset your password. When I run a team as team mom I would NEVER use this app. Shutterfly Share or Team Snap is a million times better. I always vote no on this if given an option for the youth leagues we are involved with.

Why commercial ads?

The app is really good and very helpful. The only reason for the 4 stars (instead of 5) is the commercial ads popping up in the schedule

A few kinks but overall a great app

A few issues with accounts showing players not signed up when they are on parents emails but overall a good app.

Not User Friendly

This app was written by NASA scientists!

Hard to use

My app it’s giving me a hard time I can’t find my team I got invited twice from 2 different teams and its frustrating because I can’t find them it doesn’t give me an option to look for my team it just gives me an option to create a team .... It needs to be fix I wanna keep up with my team and be able to know my schedule

Need to fix glitches

It continually asks for confirmation to the same events and never records the response. This is extremely frustrating as both a parent and a coach when trying to track attendance.

Not working properly

A family member not getting the whole message???

Time zone

Great so far but how do we schedule in our time zone? Everything comes up as eastern time. How do we switch to pacific, we’re in California. Or is it not possible?


It’s kind of cool. But I have two kids in the same league (diff teams) and for some reason, when I do the “team chat” from my phone (regardless of which child’s team I’m chatting to), it shows the message coming from one of my two children (and always the same child) rather than me. Very weird. No way to adjust it, either.

Good app/

This app gets the job done. Sometimes leaves old or extraneous information, but maybe that’s the league leaving clutter. Glad there’s an app with instant info re: practices, games and stats.

Not as helpful as I’d hoped.

I am seeing notifications of game and practice changes for other teams going back two years in my feed. I tried hiding them one-by-one, but it takes forever and doesn’t seem to work. There should be a way to keep the feed for current year only, and limit to my son’s team. I do like the simplicity of subscribing to the team’s calendar!

Awful. Just awful!

Every year, same kid, same team, I have to uninstall the app and start all over. I don’t get alerts, too many adds, ugh. Don’t bother with this- use TeamSnap instead!!!


SI app is too cluttered, difficult to use when in a rush. Only works half the time - won’t allow me to invite my son (even tho he is on the roster for his team), do I can’t get the team schedule. Messaging function is also poorly designed and difficult to use.

Subscribed calendar doesn’t update changes

I’ve only used it for 2 weeks. Everything is fine except for one issue. I have too many calendars and I need them all to sync to my iPhone calendar. It was great to find out I could subscribe to my sons team and not have to manually add them. The issue is the team has canceled a practice and also updated the start time of another. Neither of those updates have passed to my calendar. What’s worse is because it is a subscribed calendar it won’t let me make edits in my own calendar to correct it. I really need everything in one place. Fix this issue and I’ll give more stars.


This app is horrible!!


Great potential although after years of you all saying you’re working on it it, it still isn’t what it should be.

Photo loading is temperamental.

I was able to load picture one week, then never again. So frustrating. Please advise or fix.

Absolute garbage

I can’t even see my team or my schedule or anything. I don’t want to “create a new team”. I already have a team in the league’s system! Why can’t I just see the same info that’s available on the league website at the very least?

confusing and you need a laptop to change anything

this software was OK before SI Play bought it and took out all you could do (add games, practices, update scores etc) with fhe app. Now you have to go through the website with a laptop to change or do anything. The navigation is as if they never showed it to anyone who didn't write the code. 2 years and it is still. confusing. Not one person likes it.

Can’t perform main function

I can’t complete the simple, only reason for using and I am sincerely trying to understand?????

Best league app by far


No tech support

Have used app for several seasons. This season has been a mess. Somehow I have 4 accounts under my email address but none are connected to my teams. My wife’s account show me connected under her email address but I can’t make any changes. To top it off, their 1-800 number is disconnected so I can’t even get help fixing any of this.

Not Ready for prime time year 3

I used the app last year -found it to be a fairly simple and easy to use app to connect to our league athletics youth hockey league -schedule,now in year 2, no easy intuitive way to unhook last years team and connect to this years team/schedule , BTW the main # on your contact page does not work, nor does the app support link on the App Store


This App no longer functions goes into display an freezes

Update Didn’t Work

The app is constantly loading and never allows me to access anything. Happened before the update and is still happening now.


This is a great app! You get your schedule, roster, and it is so easy now because instead of making my parents when my games and practices are, I just look at the app!! It has the times dates and everything! It’s a great app!😁

Uploading pics

App spins and gets bogged down. Trying to upload pics to my roster and my profile...

Can link to team

My team has invited me probably 4 times, and when I use the email link and log in it still says I don’t have any teams, and asks if I want to create a team. Very frustrating.


Can’t be added as a family member to see schedules. Just worthless.

Overall pretty poor

It has a limited number of features compared to other apps like having multiple family members easily added to the player profile, simple navigation for email sending and texting the team. The feed feature is cool though for the team.

Simply Terrible

Clumsy, limited and inconsistent with virtually no tech support.

Worst app I HAVE to use!


Glitches between Seasons

When my kids changed teams this fall, the app still held their team info from the previous spring. There should be an option to on join a team. Ultimately I had to uninstall the app and reinstall it. What’s funny is I still continue to receive notifications from one of my daughter’s former coaches for a team she isn’t on any longer. Neither one of us can figure out if it’s something he did or something that I did. The app is helpful for managing three different kids’ schedules, but this glitch adds unnecessary confusion.

Needs work

App doesn’t refresh or upload pictures. Not very user friendly

Never works

Needs major overhaul


Very difficult to use. The app is so cluttered with ads and needless graphics that you can’t find the critical info you need.


Confusing, not user friendly , old teams and heir schedules stay on there when you should have the option to delete

No support

This app is very buggy and finding support is like finding a needle in haystack. try clicking the support link on iTunes app page. 404! Unacceptable. Try googling. Zilch. Contacted the parent company Sports Engine and I got laughed at! Although app is free, this is funded through their pay website so support should be offered. My advice is to find another sports website who support their app.

App confusion

I downloaded the app.. SI play... In my emails from the teams coaches I open that app which it says little league .. Then it goes to the S I play app .. and that's what I downloaded supposedly..the team is on both sites. But totally different.. more pictures.. wrong direction s to the game .. options to your team are different.. But the messages are on both apps.. why this happened I have no clue..
