Organize Your Drop In or Pickup Skates

Pickup Hockey Simplified

Managing your available ice time for maximum profitability is how we can help. Those compressors keep running the the massive utility and labor expenses don’t go away. You need the ice full and active as much as possible. Our app will do that for you! 

With this app we make it easy. The players will help you build your drop in skates by inviting their friends more often.

One thing we were amazed about in this process is how the players not only love the system, they use it as a tool to recruit for you!

Check out the screen shots, it is really quite simple – hockey player proof!

 

Download in App Store

Your app with your logo and graphics will be in the Apple and Google app stores for download. When they register, they agree to your Skate Rules and Terms so everyone is on the same page.

Player Profile

The player enters name, phone, position and drink preference. The position and drink preference can be changed before booking skates. 

Toggle To Book

A simple tap and the button toggles to booked. The number of skaters booked displays on the left. The day, date and time are displayed and the blue “info” button shows the skate list.

Skate List Management

Scroll down the list to see who is skating. An admin or coach can assign locker rooms, jersey colors and mark paid. The grid at the top totals to organize teams and after skate beverages.

App Setup & Your Skate Rules

 All Players must accept your Liability Waiver, Skate Rules and Terms of Use. The Skate List is set to 28 Skaters and 4 Goalies. 

The Player selects Forward, Defense or Goalie on their profile, which can be changed by them prior to booking a skate. They also select their skill level which will help with organizing skates or finding players to recruit for special skates or league play.

You are set up with two classes of players, we call them Skaters & Grinders. Skaters can book ice time up to two weeks in advance, all other skates are unavailable to them. Grinders have access to your entire schedule, regardless of how far out you book them. This allows you to keep spots available for regulars and continue to build your skate list for subs to fill in as needed. The larger your list, the easier it is to keep your skates full.

One hour prior to ice time the skate is frozen. No one can add or drop. They will call or text you so you know about last minute drops or skaters that want to come out. 

You have a Penalty Box feature. When a player “no shows” on you, put them in the Penalty Box and they must pay their ice bill to you to get out. 

You can Bench players. Is there a trouble maker coming out? Bench him! 

Book unlimited skates per month. 

You have the ability to remove a skater from a list. A player will call you to say he can’t make it and can’t get to his phone – or is too lazy. You need the ability to open up that spot so someone can fill in. We make it easy for an Admin to tap a player and hit OK to delete from the list.

Assign the player who whines the most, or a staff member, to be a Coach. The Coach can assign jerseys, only an admin can mark a skater paid. That way you can let a regular player set up the teams without losing control of marking people paid.

Optional Push Notifications

With a bit of coding, we can set you up with a way to send push notifications to players. Push notifications display on the players phone with their other app notficiations. You can segment players in a variety of ways including a message just to goalies, those who have not booked in a while, or those in a specific event. This is a powerful feature to communicate with your list.

To get your own rink version of the Perfect Skate app we have a plan for you. We will build and place in both the Google Play and Apple iTunes store your mobile app for just $600 and a monthly maintenance fee of $80. That is only $300 for each app development, a deal you won’t find elsewhere!  With your purchase of your app you also receive 1,000 cards to hand out to build your list. We are confident that if you follow our system and plan that you will profit from increased attendance and keep you players active and happy.
