Step 3 - BAND App Account

The BAND app is how our team will communicate. The team manager or head coach will send text announcements and reminders to both athletes and parents.

 

Click here to learn how to establish your account. You may also click on the above Icon to view the onboarding guide that explains all of the app's features.

Once the athlete's parent/guardian completes steps 1 and 2 above, please immediately complete this step (but only if you don't currently have a BAND app account for Spike Up Athletics) so that you don't miss important EARLY communications. You'll also be able to check to the app to get caught up on any previous information already communicated prior to you or your athlete registering. 

For safety reasons, please do not allow athletes younger than 13 years old to create their own BAND account. We will monitor the BAND app to remove all users who are not 13 or older.

Competition Uniforms

Step 4 - Athlete Uniform Order (Mandatory)

Competition and Travel Uniforms

Because Spike Up Athletics is a competitive track and field club, it's important that our athletes looks like a team and represents our club in the best light possible.  As a result, we require two uniforms: (1) a competition uniform, and (2) a travel uniform. For both our fall/winter and summer outdoor season, the competition uniforms will be the same. However, our travel uniforms will be different for each of our seasons due to seasonal temperature differences. Click on the above icon to acknowledge understanding of our uniform and loaner uniform policies

 

At some point prior to the start of practices, Spike Up Athletics' administration will email the athlete and his or her parents information on how to obtain a loaner competition uniform (if available) and order the appropriate travel uniform.  Athletes will need both a competition uniform and a travel uniform & backpack. See FAQ #7 for a breakdown of competition and travel uniform costs.
