As part of its mandate to make the sport of hockey more accessible to all Canadians, Hockey Canada and BC Hockey are proud to announce TeamHub, a new online team management tool that helps minor league coaches, managers, players and parents share rosters, calendars and stats in one central location at no cost to members. Available through Club Hockey Canada’s revitalized website, members now have access to a highly personalized, bilingual solution to simplify team management.
TeamHub was designed with the input of hockey team managers and coaches in order to meet their hockey team management needs. Through the Club Hockey Canada online community, everything is now centralized with a broad range of free features developed to simplify team management, such as:
- Messaging: Get a quick message out to the whole team
- Roster: Track and update the roster with who’s on the team and who’s playing tonight
- Calendar: Share the team’s game and practice calendar with parents and team members
- Stats: Keep track of the team’s wins and performance against other teams
- Photos: Share photos of great moments with team members and parents
“TeamHub further demonstrates Hockey Canada’s commitment to grassroots hockey by giving minor hockey teams an easy-to use, free tool to organize themselves, providing the ability to focus on the game, not the administration,” said Melody Davidson, General Manager, Hockey Canada’s National Women’s Team Programs. “Offering TeamHub to teams for free is a big cost savings for many teams out there and a great way to help lower the cost associated with the sport.”
“Canadians are talking and we are listening by doing what we can to make hockey accessible to everyone,” said Bob Nicolson, President and CEO of Hockey Canada. “Through Club Hockey Canada, we extend exclusive discounts to registered hockey participants, direct opportunities to lower the cost of hockey registration and various other hockey expenses, and with the addition of TeamHub, we provide a free online team management tool to make hockey life easier for team managers and coaches.”
In addition to TeamHub, Club Hockey Canada members can buy staples like gas and groceries, and sporting equipment through an online store while earning Puck Bucks that can be used towards the cost of hockey registration fees, ice time, tournaments and more. The website also offers exclusive benefits from leading Canadian companies, as well as host contests that members can participate in on an individual or team basis. More than half a million households in Canada qualify to be a part of Club Hockey Canada.
Club Hockey Canada is the exclusive online destination for Canadian hockey players, their parents, coaches and officials, brought to you by Hockey Canada and its member branches. All children and adults who are registered with Hockey Canada to play, coach or officiate hockey, including Canlan adult recreational players, as well as parents/guardians of all registered children under the age of 18, are automatically enrolled in the Club Hockey Canada program.
