Here's How TeamSHOUT Works

Have you ever been a coach that finds himself scrambling to cancel practice last minute? Well, with SportsSignup's new TeamSHOUT, a new easyAlert feature you can now send team text messages from any mobile phone directly, without login or access to a mobile browser (your mobile phone must be able to send text messages). 

Coaches send a text message to: MYTEAM ("short code" 698326) and must precede their text message with the word "shout", which will indicate that this message is intended for the coaches team. Within a few seconds, the message is sent to the entire team and a confirmation is sent back to the coach from SportsSignup easyAlert. Note: Just like with an easyAlert members cannot respond to your TeamSHOUT message.


TeamSHOUT messages are sent as a standard easyAlert message, which means EVERYONE on the team, including other Team Helpers (coaches, managers, parents volunteers, etc) will receive an email with the notice, and a Text Message if their phone(s) is/are opted-in to easyAlerts.
