The best way to stay in-the-know with how Team Missouri is doing while we are out in Seattle is through our mobile app. We will send out nightly newsletter recaps to those of you on our email listserv, but for real-time updates, you will want to have the mobile app. It's a great way to track the team, look through all of the newsletters in one section, see the daily schedule, read up on delegate bios and see the user-posted photos from the Emerald City.

Whether you will watch Team Missouri athletes compete in Seattle or you just want to follow their progress from afar, the Team Missouri mobile app has feature to enhance your experience cheering them on:

  • Schedules
  • Newsletters/updates on daily competitions
  • Maps/directions
  • Communicate with other parents/coaches
  • Photo gallery
  • Alerts from SOMO

There are two ways to download our app:

  • 1. Open the app store on your mobile device and search ‘Whova.’ Once Whova is downloaded, open that app and search ‘Team Missouri’ or ‘USA Games’ and select ‘2018 USA Games: Team Missouri’ and you’re good to go.
  • 2. Scan the QR code in the poster below to take you directly there

We will also be sending out nightly newsletters updating you on the progress of Team Missouri. Those newsletters will be emailed AND posted to the mobile app. If you want to receive the newsletters and updates, but don’t want to sign up for the mobile app, please email Schatsiek@somo.org. The best way to stay up-to-date as competitions are going on, however, is to download the app and receive real-time alerts from Seattle!

We are still working on adding a few things here and there, so make sure you check back in near the end of June to get the full experience.
