Other documents to be
Communication - Verify
Email and Text Messaging Capability
Please be sure to verify all the email addresses on your account. We have resolved several situations where families were not receiving all emails by just verifying all their email addresses. In order to verify (or re-verify) all email addresses on your account, login to your account and then please follow steps 5-9 in this document.
Similarly, we now have the ability to send text messages from our Team Unify system by the use of the free moblie application "On Deck". This will help to receive those urgent messages as soon as possible (such as "practice is cancelled!"). To receive text messages from the team, you must verify your cell phone number on your account. To do this, login to your account and then please follow the steps in this document.

Time Trials - May
Our team will hold Time Trials in May on two Fridays during our normal practice time. We are currently finalizing the dates and will communicate them to the team as soon as possible. The purpose of Time Trials is to provide a baseline time of each swimmer for each stroke. This helps coaches to better coach your swimmer and to prepare them properly for meets. In addition, we will run Time Trials much like a dual meet, which means we will setup our pool like we would an actual dual meet. This will also be an important opportunity to practice some of the key volunteer positions (computers, timers, stroke/turn, etc.). Please make every effort to attend Time Trials for both you and your swimmers' benefits!
