Swim Weather Alerts

Swimming + Weather= Fun times ahead

Today is no exception!

We often swim in the rain. If there is thunder or lightning we will cancel or delay. The best/fastest way for coach to communicate these very last minute changes to you is to sign up for TEXT ALERTS through the On Deck app (you should have received an invitation for this via email.) Parents and swimmers alike can sign up for the text alerts; here's how:

On Deck Alerts


To add a cell number for texting messages please follow the steps below. This MUST be done for the number to be activated for use through OnDeck. Ideally an account holder will perform the below steps, as it requires retrieving a verification code from their cell phone and entering it on the site.

  • Sign In to the website.

  • Go to your account profile. In the side menu click My Account > My Account .

  • To add an SMS number for one of the athletes in the account, click the Members tab and then click their name; otherwise stay on the current screen.

  • Enter an SMS cell number and select its Carrier .

  • Click Save in the upper right and it will send that number a verification text.

  • Check your cell phone for a "Verify your SMS" text from notifications+reczznhstpa , and open it. Note that some cell carriers can take awhile to deliver the message.

Tap the link and you should see one of three possible messages.

  • "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.

  • "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.

  • "Sorry, the code XXXX did not match any codes." If you receive this message please email us and we will walk you through how to fix the problem.

Please take a moment to work through this process. If you have any questions or problems please let us know. See you tonight!
