You sign your kid up for a sport/activity and when you fill out the information, you provide an email address. Coach then initiates contact with his team about first practice, first game etc via email. You don't check your email and you call the sports organizer to say that you have had no contact from your child's coach about anything. You are informed that the coach sent out an email and you respond with "Oh, i never check that account"
Do you think we have reached a day and age where if you provide an email address, you should be expected to check it for communications? Or is it reasonable to still expect people to call everyone in case people *don't* read their email? Should organizers in this type of situation still have to consider that some people don't like communicating this way.
I am talking about people who provide email addresses. Obviously if none is provided, the coach would be aware and should make an effort to find a way to contact that individual.
