How can HockeyClan help HOCKEY RINKS?
There are a lot of great services that we offer for the general public, but HockeyClan can specifically help hockey rinks in many ways.
- Advertising is expensive and it is difficult to manage what benefits you get from it. There is no central location where rinks can post your clinics, camps or private lessons…until now. HockeyClan allows rinks to post without restrictions your camps, clinics, tryouts, private lessons, power skate lessons, anything you can think of in their classifieds system. Register your brand, activate the account by email (check SPAM folder), login and place an ad today. This is all FREE!
- We are allowing hockey rinks to expand their brand through our site using their staff or coaches as bloggers. They can write an article on a topic (skating, turns, drill, youth hockey, etc.) or can submit an instructional videos to us to gain the most exposure. Videos typically garner much more interest than written articles. The choice is yours. Just contact us and submit a sample of your work and request to be a blogger. You can email us an instructional video or article to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Rinks can have their coaches and schedulers register on the site and click the checkbox stating that they are a coach or scheduler. This allows them to be searched on the site from our search box in the main navigation. This will make them easy to find, and allow their services to come up for potential players/coaches/clients.
- Rinks and coaches can post ads or forum topics that help them find a player if needed for the season or for a tournament.
- Rinks can post forum topics about a specific tournaments they are running to discuss the level of play from the other teams going to that tournament. This enables teams to find the proper competition level for their teams.
- Rinks can use the system, once logged in, as a group/team messaging system. Email notifications will be sent out whenever something is posted to the PRIVATE group. Each team can have their own private group and choose the option to even have a private forum in the group! In this group, everyone can share pictures, videos and documents privately. Perfect for your team moms and dads. This will soon be available in our app, which is being developed. Again all of this is FREE!
- Rinks can provide coupons for their camps, clinics, ice time, pro shop or snack bar with our coupon system. Just send us the info and we will create a coupon for you.
- Rinks, if available, can even email video clips of games to us, entering the players into the Youth and High School Hockey Plays of the Week!
- Rinks can also be a part of the only ice hockey social network! They can follow their players, friends, families and other coaches.
- Rinks can also create public groups for their open hockey skates. Then they can add their open hockey skates using our form (requires login) for all of their open hockey skates. Rinks can collect every member they want utilizing our open hockey sign up sheets. Then we can help you add the players and get this started. This utilizes our events management system so that users can RSVP for the open hockey skates. This is a great service to provide for your players. Now they will know how many people, and goalies, are showing up! Again this is completely FREE!
We tried to make this a no-brainer for all hockey coaches, families and rinks. Try it out, and let us know if we can improve something. We are constantly adapting to feedback.
