Fort Erie Minor Hockey is pleased to announce that we will be using a new Web and Scheduling Platform for the upcoming hockey season.

This new platform provides the organization with enhanced capabilities when it comes to scheduling for both our travel programs as well as our house league programs.  The new platform integrates fully with our neighboring hockey associations to ensure a seamless experience with scheduling and game results.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why change web platforms?
There are a number of factors that went into the decision to move to a new website.  First and foremost is the improved scheduling capabilities that exist within the new solution.  The solution provides a dedicated scheduling module that will ensure more timely scheduling updates and will allow games scheduled by other organizations to update to our website directly without any manual intervention.  Further to this, scores from other centres will update directly on the website as well.   

Does this change increase costs?
Costs are comparable between the old and the new platform.

Are team specific sites available that managers can update directly?
Yes.  This feature is available and will be communicated with the Managers prior to the launch of the upcoming hockey season.

Is there any Android or iPhone App available?
At this time, there is not an app available, however, the new website does modify itself visually to fit properly within a browser or any of the popular web applications.

How will I get schedule update notifications without an App?
A full tutorial will be posted, but schedule additions, cancellations and changes will be available via the following methods.
  1. Directly on the website.
  2. ical updates-  ical updates will work with most popular calendar phone applications.  Updates will automatically update to your phones or email clients calendar.
  3. Text Message- Text message notifications when a schedule has been modified.
Has the registration process changed?
At this time, the new website does not impact in the registration process in any way.
