HockeyClan.com is building this inclusive community to allow parents, players, rinks and coaches to benefit from our unique platform. Extensive forums are available to discuss anything related to hockey. Classified listings are available for almost anything hockey including equipment sales, rink to advertise camps or clinics, coaches to promote private lessons or clinics and even helping find a team to join. Coupons will be available for rinks or hockey community family businesses to use to promote a product or service with a discount. Own a pro shop? Have extra ice time available going unrented? Own a bagel store? Give the hockey community a deal!
Some of our most exciting additions are the open hockey and private skate management components. Through our system rink owner, hockey directors and players who rent the ice privately can first create a public group. They will be the admin of the group and can invite players to join the group. For open hockey the group should remain public. For private skates it should be a private group. The admin will then go to our add hockey skate event form, choose a group, enter their event information and choose open hockey or private skate. These events will be distributed to the group members by email. This will allow players to RSVP and see who is going to the skate from the event page. Email notifications and privacy options can be toggled by the individual users. No more driving from work and realizing only 5 guys are there to skate. No more showing up and realizing there are 0 goalies. Now we can all rest assured that open hockey and private skates will run smooth!
Finally, we aim to develop an extensive news network for all levels. Feel free to join on as a blogger whether you are a writer, player, coach or parent. Coaches can add articles, videos or anything else they want. Either using our blogger submission form or by emailing everything to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Some of our higher level bloggers are paid to write about hockey. Others, just starting out, just do it because they love it! You all have important things to say and differing opinions on topics. Whether it’s to recap a game, talk about a trade on your favorite team or blog about youth hockey, we want you to share your insight to make the community more informed. Write an article about your kids team or league and we will help you publish it. Maybe you can be the next great sportswriter. Now you have the chance. Learn more in our FAQs menu.
Please don't forget to take a look at our $1000 Scholarship Contest available for Bantam and Midget hockey players.
