One Call Now Information
We are proud to announce that we will once again be using the One Call Now service for additional means of communication!
Head Coaches were supplied with phone lists which the parents will be asked to verify and prioritize their phone numbers.
Once these are returned, the team phone roster will be added.
All calls will show 440.723.4378 as the origin (which is the league phone number)
Not only will the League be able to mass-call, but each team will have their own account to use! If you haven't verified your number with your coach, bug them!

In addition, the service has the ability to send text messages. 
In order to accept text messages, you will need to text the word ALERT to 22300 from each cell phone you wish to receive texts from. This will opt your cell phone in.
