Are you seeing security errors? 

Rest assured, our site is secure when you are on any page asking for personal information (registration, email lists, etc.).  It is also secure when you enter financial information such as PayPal numbers, banking and routing numbers and credit cards.  

Our site is secure for those activities that require it. We purposely use the SportsEngine/League Athletics software for our site because they provide the best security available to protect our kids and our sport so we can enjoy the game! 

Use either of these addresses to avoid the errors:

http://www.dblax.com or http://dblax.com 

 

Here is more info on the nature of these errors and why we get them

1.  When you first bring up our site, and you use this address: http://www.dblax.com or http://dblax.com you will successfully see the homepage, yet may still see a 'not secure' warning in the URL field.  We do not gather any personal or financial information from this homepage, therefore, it is not secure. It doesn't need to be.

However, when you click on 'Register Now!' or 'Join Our Email List' the 'not secure' warning disappears. On our site, this means you can enter your information securely on these pages. On other websites, you might just see the URL change from HTTP to HTTPS, refecting the secure status of that particular page. 

2.  When the address you enter looks like this: https://www.dblax.com or https://dblax.com you will see the scary errors the first time you try. Feel free to override them, it will not compromise your system. Don't use the 's' at the end of http, and you can avoid these errors.  

Every browser is different. We tested our site with Safari, Chrome, Edge and IE, and each have their own settings that will affect when and why the errors are displayed. 

3. Some browser versions will display just the dblax.com in the URL field after you type it in, then add the 's' in the background and the URL will automatically change to this: https://dblax.com, and you'll get the errors. Sneaky buggers. 

4.  Some browsers will display the 's' in the URL field on the pages that are secure, and then NOT display the 's' on pages that aren't secure.  

5.  Depending on the settings of your browser's cache, you might continue to get errors when you use the 's' after initially accessing the site, and you might not. They keep us guessing.

The good news is that the companies behind these browsers and their confusing behaviors are just trying to protect us from all the bad guys out there. To learn more, feel free to read up on SSL Certificates and how they work - its a guaranteed sleep aid :)
