To aid in parent-to-parent communication, a McQuaid Crew discussion group has been established on "Groupme.com". GroupMe is a free group messaging system that works on any device, even SMS (text). You can use it to chat directly with other parents or ask questions of the entire group without having to share your cellphone number with anyone.

It's very simple to use, just click on this LINK to join the discussion.‚Äč When joining, please use your real first and last name so that we may ensure that all participants are affiliated with McQuaid Crew.

This group is not monitored by McQuaid Crew coaches and board members. If you have a question for a coach or a board member, please contact them directly.
