TeamApp

We are using a smartphone app to facilitate easier communication between coaching staff, athletes and parents. TeamApp is designed for use on smartphones (android and iPhone), iPads and iPods, and can also be viewed online. It is free to download and does not incur a membership fee.

TeamApp keeps member contact details private and students cannot communicate with each other through the app.

To download, go to Team App:

  1. Sign-up using your name, date of birth and email address. You'll be sent an email to confirm your registration.
  2. Search for BSHS Girls Athletics and request access to the group athletes, coaches, or parents (whichever applies to you).
  3. Once your request is approved you will be able to see news and upcoming BSHS track and field events.

Students must attend training sessions weekly to be eligible for a pocket.

Students who train with an outside coach at a recognised athletic venue must attend 5 school training sessions and show written evidence from their coach that they have attended regular training in the lead up to the GPS/QGSSSA carnivals.
