Prior Lake Athletics for Youth - 30 July 2022 - Watch Video

Here are the steps written out:

  1. Navigate to
  2. If not already signed in, at the top of the page, click Sign in.
  3. In the upper right-hand corner, click on your Account Initials/Profile Photo > Go to My Account.
  4. On the left-hand navigation, click the Settings tab.
  5. Under account information, second line, click Edit.
  6. Enter the new email address and click Add Email Address.
    • NOTE: If you receive an error message that means your secondary email address is already in use. You can not have two SportsEngine accounts with the same email address (primary or secondary).  If you get this error you need to merge your two accounts together, please email
  7. Navigate to your email's inbox.
  8. In your inbox, open the "Verify Email" to verify your email address.
  9. Once you have verified your secondary email address, your email address is updated.

When I try to create an account, it says my 'email has already been taken'?

The SportsEngine system only allows for one unique email address to be tied to a single SE account. If the system recognizes that your email address already exists, then you have already created an SE account at  some point, it might even have been with a different organization, that is okay, you use the same account across all orginations that use SportsEngine. If you don't remember your password, enter the same emails address and use the forgot password link to reset it.

If you already use your SE account to log into another organization's website, then all you need to do is 'join the network' for any additional organization's you would like to be a member of. To do this:

  1. If not already signed in, at the top of the page, click Sign in.
  2. In the upper right-hand corner, click on your Account Initials/Profile Photo > Connect to Site.

I created an account, but I am not receiving the Activation Email.

First,  If you don't receive the email within a couple of minutes, be sure to check your Spam/Junk folder in case the email gets flagged as Spam.

Next, add "" to your Address Book and let us know to resend the activation email.

**We would like you to try all methods of account creation to ensure that you can receive email communications through our website.
