How to use Volt Chat

Group Messaging:

  • Your teams in Volt are automatically converted to group message channels in Volt Chat.

  • Athletes and coaches in your team will be able to message the group from within the channel.

  • Athletes can see your messages in the Volt athlete app.

  • Coaches can see your messages whenever they're logged in to app.voltathletics.com.

Small-Group Messaging:

  • A coach can create a small group message in Volt Chat to direct message

  • If you only want to message the football kickers on the team or send a special message to goalies on the soccer team, you can create a small group message to only include these athletes. Use the "+" icon to add the athletes you want to chat with.

Direct Messaging:

  • You can search for and start a 1:1 message with any athlete who is on a team that you're a coach of.

Coach Notes

Team Note

To write your entire team a note (for a given day of training), go to the Dashboard and click the corresponding day (Day 1, Day 2, etc.) at the top of the page. Your entire team, no matter what program they are training on, will be able to see this Team Note at the top of their workout for the day. (E.g., "Primer: Squat Mobility. We have Challenge Sets on our Back Squats today. Go crush 'em!")

Athlete Note

To write a note to an individual athlete (for a given day of training), go to the Dashboard and click the corresponding day to the right of the athlete's name. Only the individual athlete will see this Athlete Note at the top of their workout for the day. (E.g., "Riley, do the Squat Mobility Primer before your workout today. This will help you work on reaching full depth on your Back Squats!")

Why Use Volt Chat or Notes?

Use these communication tools to give your team instructions about their workouts or to send a motivational quote! These tools can be really useful when working with athletes who need specific instructions—like those returning from an injury or illness (e.g., "The Athletic Trainer has cleared you for squats, but take it easy!"), or athletes who need extra mobility/flexibility work (e.g., "Do 2 rounds of the Upper-Body Mobility Finisher after your workout").
