Heja – the simple and modern way to communicate within your grassroots team. Join 200,000 teams on the app – including 50,000 grassroots coaches in the UK!
Heja’s team communication and scheduling app is the secret to calming down your group chat and makes running any football team easier for volunteer coaches and managers.
Are you spending your Friday evenings, WhatsApping players or junior football parents, asking for a 👍 or 👎 to find out who’s available – and getting a million and 1 notifications about postcodes and turning up late in reply?
It means everyone on your team – coaches, managers, players, parents, grandparents, team dogs – knows exactly what’s going on, where to be, at which time, and what to bring. It’s dead easy to use. Here’s the best bits of the app.
SCHEDULE YOUR SEASON
Organise games / training / tournaments. A clear schedule for everyone to see listing times, dates, postcodes, pitch locations, and other important info.
KNOW YOUR TEAM’S AVAILABILITY
Players/parents just RSVP if they can come – with automatic reminders going out to make sure. Coaches get neat availability lists showing exactly who’s available.
Coaches communicate important info to all team members at once – and see exactly who and how many have read your message. There’s a group chat, so parents can communicate with one another – and everything doesn’t have to go through the coach.
CONTACT DETAILS IN ONE SAFE PLACE
Store all contact details for everyone on the team in one place with easy accessibility. Sorted.
MANAGE MULTIPLE TEAMS
Part of several grassroots teams? Heja makes it simple for coaches, parents, or players to manage more than one team — keeping all team info in one easy-to-find place! (There’s no cost for organising several teams through the app).
SHARE VIDEOS AND IMAGES
The safe and secure place to share action photos of the team or post tactics and motivational messages ahead of the game. Heja allows you to upload photos and videos directly from your pocket!
NO ADS AND FREE TO USE
The best bit. Heja is FREE for everyone on the team to use, and won’t serve you any ads. In fact, they think ads distract from the experience they’ve worked so hard on — to be the easiest and simplest team management app on the market.
