When you first signed up to lead your child’s soccer team, you probably thought the actual coaching would be your main responsibility. But someone should have added team manager and assistant to the job title too! No one told you how much time you’d spend reaching out to other parents to share game locations, order uniforms, assign snack duty, and figure out carpooling. Making sure the team is in the right place at the right time is critical. You’re most likely dealing with multiple phone numbers per family, and keeping them organized can be stressful. That’s where Hiya comes in:

Whether you’re in coach mode, at the office, or enjoying some of your valuable free time, you want to know who’s calling.

When the dad of your standout midfielder is calling to let you know your player has been knocked out with a cold all week and can’t play, you want to make sure you answer. When you’re getting the third call for how many days now from a number that’s offering you a “free vacation,” you probably wish you could block it.
