SMS Notifications:  Since we're starting up outdoors next week, it's important to be registered with SMS (text messaging system).  Laws dictate there can be no swimming for 30-minutes after the last lightning strike or thunder clap.  We'll be activating the SMS System (texting & email) if anything should occur before/during a practice and if we'll try to have practices or cancel them.        In the Help & Training (upper, left side) you can type 'sms' to get the setup procedure (takes about 5 minutes).  It's also mentioned in Weekly Notes back in October/November.          Also, if there's inclement weather...and you don't have SMS...make sure we are having practices when you drop off your swimmer(s).  In the past, we've canceled before practices due to weather, but parents either didn't know since they didn't get the SMS messages (or hadn't checked their email).  So it's important to have this in order to know if we do have practice, if it's ending abruptly due to weather, etc.       If questions, please see Barry
