HC a.k.a. the Hockey Community


As many have seen we endorse the Hockey Community here at Floorballcentral. Why? Because they build a system that also include Floorballers to find connections and games.

This is the latest from the Hockey Community

We're pleased to have you as a partner on our blogs directory and we wanted to update your about our new Iphone App that just hit the App Store after fourth intense months of hard work!  

We focused on 4 main areas for the first release of our iPhone app:

  • 1. Rink schedules: we built a software for rink managers so they can upload their schedules and ice times which feed directly to our iPhone App and a dedicated mobile site. QR Code posters are also provided to the rinks, making it easier for players access HC (see screenshot attached). Planet Ice has 5 locations using our technology in BC.
  • 2. Social Discovery: Teams can request an extra player or goalie at any time and players in the area will be informed about this new opportunity. Our goalie finder tool will help organizers find a goaltender in a record time. In a city like Vancouver, we have more than 150 goalies signed up.

    In each of our 8800+ facilities across more than 60 countries you will be able to know where local teams are playing and when future games are scheduled.
  • 3. Reputation: We think players should be able to build their hockey reputation, we created a number of badges rewarding the players based on how much they play and contribute to the community.  It helps to give the player credibility so others will see that this player is reliable. 
  • 4. Team pages: a place where you can discuss with your teammates easily.

Every section is enhanced by smart algorithms that suggest teammates or potential players based on your previous games. Currently we are also working on an HC Android app. Our fastest growing countries are Canada, USA, Sweden and Belgium. 

Thanks,

Alex Toulemonde & the HC Team

Caution

Research suggest that eye-injuries are more common in Floorball as compared to Tennis, but less common as compared to Squash (similar to Racquetball).
To minimize this risk of injury Floorballcentral recommend: Use certified protective eye-wear (mandated in many European areas for the youth). Do not lay down on the court. Follow the rules strict on stick height.

Also if you get addicted to this sport - do not blame us!
