New in town? This app lets hockey players connect and find ice time

Canada is easily one of the best places to play hockey in North America. Think about it: If there’s a frozen lake that’s been approved for safe skating, we’re on it. Organizing games at our local public skating rinks is like second nature to us.

But if you’ve just moved to Canada or want to play hockey for the first time, you may not know where to start.

Luckily, there’s an app for that and you can join it right away: Hockey Community. It’s driven by a group of passionate people with the desire to grow the game of hockey, everywhere.

“We love seeing the sport we all enjoy grow, not just locally but across the globe,” says one of Hockey Community’s founders, Ryan Samson. “We’ve seen first hand what a simple game can create in a community. The stories, friendships, and all the camaraderie are one of the many things we’ve encountered as being part of Hockey Community. We want to see more!”

Available for free download now on Google Play and the iTunes App Store, Hockey Community has a bunch of impressive features that you can use.

  • Discover and join events, including shinnys and tournament games.
  • Use the goalie finder if you’re missing your goalie for a game.
  • Organize and create events.
  • Buy and sell gear.
  • Create and manage teams.
  • Meet players nationwide.
  • Discover arenas, outdoor rinks, hockey shops, leagues and tournaments around you.
