Email and Text Alerts
If you want to be informed on any late breaking news (pool closing, practice changes, etc), please sign-up for Text & Email alerts. It’s VERY easy to do and you can register multiple email addresses and cell phone numbers – so make sure to register mom, dad, swimmer, nanny, grandma – anyone who wants to have up-to-the minute news delivered quickly. Note – these messages are short and this will NOT be used for sending newsletters, handouts, etc – only “emergency” type notifications.
Simply click on “Game Cancelled” where the lightning bolt is on the far left side of the screen. Click on Get Started. On the next screen, click on Sign Me Up! Enter the email address where you want alerts to be sent and then make sure the “create a FREE account button” is highlighted and click Submit. You will receive an email verification code sent to the email address you just submitted – enter that on the next screen, choose a password and complete your contact information. (You must be 13 years old to create an alert account. If you want your swimmer to receive alerts and they are younger than 13, you will need to “override” their birthdate.) Once you submit that information, the next screen will ask for your cell phone number and carrier for text alerts. Again you will be sent a verification code which you will enter on the next screen. After your phone number has been validated, you will be asked which alerts you would like to receive. We recommend you sign-up for “All Team Members & Coaches” and also for the age group(s) of your swimmer(s). After you click on save, you are done and you will be the first to know all the latest news from HWAC!
