Bulk outbound texts can be sent to the Student-Athlete Roster from ARMS on the Web or the ARMS Coach mobile app. Bulk texting through ARMS is one-way communication, meaning that recipients cannot reply to the text.

Texting from the Web

From the Team module:

  • Click on the page for Rosters

  • Check the box to the left of the athletes to receive the text

  • Select Send Text from the menu at the top of the list

  • Staff can optionally be included on Team Texts

  • Only Athletes and Staff with a mobile number on their profile will receive the text
