Raincity Athletics on Slack

02 October 2015

Hey RAthletes!

With so much going on in the coming months (CF24, CAL, PALEOctober, etc) I finally decided it’s time to invite everyone into our little Slack chat group.

The coaches and staff at Raincity Athletics use slack for almost all of our team communication. Within it there are also public groups for members. These groups automatically pull in blog posts (based on categories) as well as Social media feeds (based on #rathletes, and other hashtags) all into one place.

I know many people are already overwhelmed by the Facebook groups, email etc – and if you fall into that category, then don’t worry about joining our Slack! This will merely be a base level chat/communication tool between the different groups to help facilitate better communication for the upcoming events etc. Simply put, it’s just to ‘chat.’ All posts, announcements, etc. will still go where they have always gone! This will merely replace the countless Facebook messenger groups etc. that are starting to form.

If you received the invite, feel free to accept and there’s both a mobile app & desktop app you can download. If you’re not interested, feel free to ignore it 🙂
If you didn’t receive the invite but would like one, just e-mail thor @ raincityathletics.ca

Everything you need to know about using Slack.

Simon is the Head Coach and Owner of Raincity Athletics. “Discovering a new level of health has changed my life, not only in how I look feel and perform, but how I feel about myself both inside and out. I want to help as many people as I can discover their ‘athlete within’ no matter what level that may be, which is why I love our slogan: Find Your Fit. Our bodies are nicer than any car, house, or pet we’ll ever own, and yet we constantly abuse them like we can buy another one if it breaks. I strongly believe if we can maximize our physical health and performance it will have a positive affect on our lives in more ways than anyone can imagine.”
