Greetings Storm Family, 


I'd like to take this time to welcome everyone to the team. we have officially kicked off the start of the 2015 Track & Field season and our first practice is behind us. 


The Team is now full.  If you are interested in becoming a part of our Track & Field program in the future, please be sure to join our newsletter and make sure you're on the sign up information list. 



This will be the last newsletter sent out to Cross Country and Sign-Up List, please use the link at the bottom of this email to check and update your newsletter list subscription, make sure you are on the Track & Field List. Starting next week, the newsletter will only be sent to the Track & Field list. 


Practice this week will be on Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday. Monday is a holiday so there will be no practice on Monday. 


Distance kids will meet at Central park in the field near the restrooms. We will have coaches at both locations for drop off and pick up, please try to pick up from Central park first, as the distance program will always end before the track program. 


Mardi Gras Madness is this Sunday if you are interested in running a 5 or 10 k run be sure to sign up and be part of the Storm Team. Online registration closes tomorrow (Tuesday).

Distance - Will meet at Central Park on the field near the Restrooms (Across from the basketball courts). 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm Please pick up kids from Central park before heading to Saugus high School if you have children at both practice sites. 



If it is raining practice is canceled. However we will practice in a light sprinkle. This makes it tricky, many times it is not raining at the track when it's raining at home. Do not drop off your athlete if there is a chance for a canceled practice, please stick around 

Please be sure to text STORMTF to 41411 to be added to our urgent alert system, in the event of a canceled practice, we will send a group text alert out telling parents to pick up their athlete. 

or text "follow @stormtrackclub" to 40404

Urgent Message Alert System
If you would like to join our Urgent Alert Text System, on your cell phone text the word "STORMTF" to 41411 and you should be greeted with a welcome message, we use this system rarely for very important urgent alerts, for example, We cancel practice early due to unforeseen circumstances
It's been brought to my attention that if your using T-Mobile, you may have to contact them to have Text Message Blocking shut off while you enroll. I believe once your enrolled you can turn it back on. Click here for more information
Please be sure to check with your cell phone provider if you are having trouble connecting to our urgent alert text system. 

We will try to help you, but in most cases if you get an error trying to connect, I suggest you contact your customer service and see if there is some type of blocking on your phone preventing signing up for these types of text systems, I've been told that some games use text systems to bill your phone, our system will not bill your phone, we are paying for it.

Alternatively: If you use Twitter, you can join our twitter feed. We also tweet all of our urgent text alerts.


To sign up for twitter alerts,

1) text "follow @stormtrackclub" to 40404
2) You should get confirmation that you are following us
3) Urgent text alerts will be texted to you the same as if you joined the alert system. 


I believe this will work even if you don't have a twitter account.   


We do tweet out a link to our newsletter each week also, so you will get more information from us via twitter than our Urgent Alert Text System.
