Instructions for Text Alerts

INSTRUCTIONS FOR SETTING UP TEXT ALERT SYSTEM

In the order for our Coaching staff to communicate with parents and swimmers faster (practice updates/changes, etc...), we first need you to verify/validate your cell phone numbers. If you would like to receive text alerts, see the information below on how to set this up.

Account validation and Member validation – are two separate things.

Here are the steps that you need to follow to do both:

  1. Log into your account on the CGAC website.
    2. Click on "My Account", under the log in button, a drop down box will appear
    3. Click on "My Account" again in the drop down box, this will open your
    “Account Contact Information”.
    4.  In the 1st section called "Account Contact Information" toward the
    bottom are SMS and Carrier options with open boxes next to them.
    5. Enter your cell phone number and your cell phone company and click SAVE. If both parents/guardians want to receive text message alerts, you have the option to enter a second cell phone number.  Follow Step 4 above if entering more than one cell phone number.
    6. You will receive a text message on your phone within a few moments.
    7. Click on the blue words in the text that you received to verify
    your account.
    **You will not receive text messages until the setup is verified.

If you want your swimmer to also receive texts: Click the Members tab on the account page and then on the swimmers’ name that you would like to receive text message alerts.  Enter their cell phone number and the carrier name and then click SAVE.  They will need to confirm the text on their phone to activate the texting.
