How to Set-up an Email Address Alias

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

For the safety of minors and Runners, 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 child Enrolled, or if you yourself are Enrolled as a volunteer, each of you (All who are Enrolled) needs a unique email address.  Below is information on setting up unique email aliases so that parents/guardians can receive in their single mailbox email for all Enrolled persons in their family. 

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 Runner and Volunteer, all correspondence for a Runner or Student Volunteer 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 Runners and Volunteers, 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 to sign up multiple Runners or 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.
