ONE CLICKEICE (OCI)
This scheduling software is used to:
- Assist teams when they are wanting to give up a practice ice slot.
- Assist teams who are looking for additional ice times for their team.
It MUST be noted, that when using the "Take & Give Tool", in OCI; until another team has taken your teams' ice slot, YOUR team is responsible for using that ice slot to ensure it is NOT burned. ONLY after another team "takes" the ice slot, does it become the 'new' teams' responsibility.
Coaches and/or Managers will receive their login credentials for OCI, in their SW Welcome Package. If you have not received your Welcome Package by the time your team has been created, please contact the Ice Scheduler.

WHAT IS A P90?
A P90 is an effective way of scheduling teams so that they can benefit from receiving both shared ice and full ice within a 1 hour practice.
The start time is offset by 30 minutes to allow each team to have full ice for 30 minutes and also share ice for 30 minutes.
Ice Time is: 5:45pm - 7:15pm, PW4 and PW5 are scheduled.
On their calendar, PW4 will see 5:45pm-6:45pm, and PW5 will see 6:15pm-7:15pm. The calendar will also indicate the team you are sharing with. As PW4 is on the ice first, they will have full ice for 30 minutes, and then PW5 will come on the ice at 6:15pm. The teams will then share the ice for 30 minutes, until 6:45pm. Then because PW5 is last on the ice, they will have the last 30 minutes as full ice.
AGE DIVISION LEAGUE SCHEDULING GUIDELINES
There are no set rules but rather guidelines that Hockey Calgary uses when scheduling the league games. For consistency, Southwest Hockey utilizes these same guidelines when scheduling practices. However, the Association (or teams) may schedule outside of these posted guidelines for such events as; evaluations, exhibition, tournament and practice times; as deemed necessary.
