What you share

Before, during, and after a contest, you may share NEWS (one-way messages) to your team members (coaches and babies), and you may receive news from the HOST-TEAM LEADER.

Team Leaders are also coaches:

Coaches share their screen name and location (City, State, and Country) with babies and other coaches in the same team, and the name, job title, and location with the Team Leader.

In addition, with other teams in the same contest, the Team Leader shares the Team name and location, the aggregated Kangaroo Care duration and average of the entire team, and the number of babies and coaches.
