Sign-Up to Receive Text Reminders from Woodside!

Remind101 is a website originally setup as a safe way for teachers to text message or email students and parents, but we think it will work perfectly for Woodside too for last minute reminders/updates!  Whether it's a social event, weather-related shutdown, practice cancellation, etc., you'll have the information right away!

Depending on the list you subscribe to, you can receive reminders, practice/meet updates, etc. as well as receive general club closure information in the event of an emergency.  As long as your cell phone plan allows for free incoming texts (no smartphone necessary), it doesn’t cost anything to subscribe (and you can always choose to receive an email instead of a text).  

Once you subscribe to a group, you should receive an automated text within 10 seconds asking for your name.  This categorizes you within the Remind101 app since no one at Woodside ever sees your cell phone number, just the name that you provide.  No information you provide will be shared with anyone and you can opt out at any time. You can think of this as a modern-day telephone chain.  Back in the “olden days”, it might take countless phone calls and lots of time to disseminate a message to our swim or tennis team families.  Now we have the capability of sending out one message that all of our subscribed families can receive instantaneously!  For example, if you don’t have a child on the tennis team, you need not subscribe to that list so you won’t be bombarded with messages that don’t pertain to you.  Here are the lists that you can subscribe to; you may subscribe to any, all or none. We welcome you to join any and/all lists that you’d like.  You can also invite your teen children with phones and texting plans to get their own reminders!
