How to Set-up an Email Address Alias

Claremont Running Team (CRT) emails are sent to parents/guardians

For the safety of minor youth Runners and Student Volunteers, CRT communications from its coaches, volunteers, or others, sent by email, phone, or text are sent only to the parents/guardians of minor children -- never to the minor.  However, if you have more than one minor child Enrolled as a Team Member, or if you yourself are Enrolled as a team volunteer, each of you (All who are Enrolled including parents/guardians and minor children) needs a unique email address.  Below is information on setting up unique email aliases for a single mailbox so that parents/guardians need not create new mailboxes yet can still receive email in their own box, even when sent to unique email addresses for their minor children.

What is an email alias?

An email alias is a unique email address that arrives in, or is forwarded to, the primary or real email mailbox. By creating an alias email address for each Youth Runner and Youth Volunteer, all their email correspondence will arrive in the parent/guardian's email mailbox, yet it is still identifiable as to which Enrollee it pertains.  Having alias email addresses will enable you to individually sign-up and manage multiple participating Youth Runners and Youth Volunteers on the CRT website, each with a unique email address -- yet allow all emails to be received in a parent's or guardian's mailbox.  After you have created an alias email address, use it on the CRT website to Enroll multiple Youth Runners or Youth Volunteers in the same family.  Please make note of any new aliases and the associated CRT passwords for future use.

How to make an alias:

Gmail:  Without creating a new account, Gmail allows you to create an unlimited number of new aliases email by adding a plus sign (+) after your current email address, and before the "@" sign.  All emails sent to the new alias email address (followed by a "+" sign) will be received by the original email address.  For example, emails sent to johnsmith+bob@gmail.com and johnsmith+jane@gmail.com will both go to the mailbox johnsmith@gmail.com.  When signing up a child to be a member of Claremont Running Team, if there are multiple children, use aliases to make sure that each child has a unique email address.
