REMIND Texts 
  • We will be posting information regarding our summer training, conditioning/practice schedule, and other fun things we're planning for the upcoming season. We'll be posting information on the blog site, then we'll send REMIND texts with links to any blog updates.
  • If you still need to log on to REMIND, text @learwoodc to the number 81010. You will then receive team texts and blog update links.
  • If you would like to remove yourself from REMIND, reply LEAVE @learwoodc to the latest text message.
  • One last thing, REMIND texts are only one-way communications (I've turned off two-way communication). This means the coaching staff can only text you, but you cannot text us. However, you can contact us at the following email addresses:
If you have any questions, please let us know! We'll be sending more information regarding our pre-season soon!
