By creating an Allcal calendar, parents and team members will be able to keep track of all the team’s practices, scrimmages, games, and tournaments right on their phones.

Keep everyone updated

The calendar works in real-time, so any changes get automatically updated on every single person’s calendar. Instead of calling or texting each parent to let them know a practice or game has been moved, the coach can simply make the change on his or her own phone.

Every parent will get the new information, as well as a push notification that makes sure they know about the change.

Share with everyone

Parents can even use Allcal to share information about each game with their family members and friends.

By simply linking the event to a shared family calendar, or sharing the event directly, parents can feel confident that everyone invited to the game will get the last-minute change as well. No more calling and mass-texting your entire family, every time the volleyball court gets changed – its so easy that even Grandma and Grandpa can simply look at their phone and see the latest information.
