1. Existing Twitter users - add the hashtag #MOsoccer to any tweet
that offers final scores. That will offer a real-time feed for the
media, coaches and fans to see results throughout the state.
2. New Twitter users - before creating a Twitter account, consider
creating a new email address to administer the account so that it can
remain with the school when they move on. It can become an
administrative email address for Twitter, a Facebook Page, any other
web services they may use to support their program. Once created, then
visit https://twitter.com/ to create an account.

When will kids be on Twitter? Immediately after school and when they
are at home. Same with parents.
For non-smartphone users, Twitter users can use Text Messaging (or
more specifically SMS). Here's a link with information -
A Twitter account is not needed with the new "Fast Follow" program -
Note that SMS/text messaging prices apply on your mobile account.
