How do I register as a Team Captain -AND- as a Teacher with a Student Class Team(s)?

Option 2:  An alternate solution using 1 email address

 

This solution is not recommended and should only be used if you do not have 2 email accounts.

 

Please record all settings carefully indicated in the steps below.

 

Step 1:

 

If you already have a Walk Across Texas account, then please sign in.  Carefully record the password for this account.

 

Or, if you do not have a Walk Across Texas account, then please create one.  Carefully record the email address and password.  Then choose to participate as a Team Captain of an 8 person team.  Add your team members now or later.

 

Step 2:

 

You will alter the email address used for the account in Step 1.

 

By altering the email address used with the account in Step 1, you will be able to create another Walk Across Texas account.  ( Warning: After you alter the email address used with the account in Step 1, you will not be able to recover your password by email.  Please submit a support ticket if necessary. )

 

Sign In to the account in Step 1 and go to the My Account tab.  Add a number to the end of the email address displayed in "Email Address" and "Confirm Email Address" fields.

 

For example, if the original email address used in Step 1 was mikesmith@hotmail.com, then the altered email address would be:  mikesmith2@hotmail.com

 

Carefully record this new, altered email address with your password.

 

Click the Save button.  Click the Sign Out link located at the top right corner of the window.
