Team Texting - How to add and verify your SMS/cell number

Communication via text is critical to our ability to stay in contact with each of your accounts. This is particularly important for certain notifications, like practice/weather alerts and last-minute important meet information. To add a cell number for text messages please follow the steps below:

  1. Sign In to your account on the WRA website.
  2. If you see an  Email Address Verification pop up, click the  x in its upper right corner.
  3. In the side menu, click  My Account >  My Account.

  1. To add an SMS number for one of your athletes on the account, click the  Members tab and then click their name; otherwise stay on the current screen.
  2. Enter an  SMS cell number and select its  Carrier.

  1. Click  Save in the upper right and it will send that number a verification text.
  2. Check your cell phone for a "Verify your SMS" text from  notifications+gawra, and open it. Note that some cell carriers can take awhile to deliver the message.

  1. Tap the link and you should see one of three possible messages.
    1. "Success! We have validated your primary SMS." (or "secondary SMS" if that's what you were verifying) The SMS number is verified and ready to receive texts from the team. You may skip the rest of the steps.
    2. "Sorry, your primary SMS has already been validated." Sometimes just opening the text will verify the number, resulting in this message. The SMS number is verified and ready to receive texts from the team. You may skip the rest of the steps.
    3. "Sorry, the code XXXX did not match any codes." Continue to the next step.
    4. If tapping the link doesn't work, note the four digit code number in the text message.
  2. Back in your account on the WRA website, click the  Unverified button above the SMS number.

  1. If you got the error in step 8c on your mobile device, click  Resend Verification and go back to step 6.
  2. Otherwise, enter the four digit code from your text message in the  Verification Code field and click  Verify.
  3. You will see  Verified in green above the SMS number. You may need to refresh the screen to see this.
