Launching our new and improved ice schedule
The 2017-18 season is underway at the West Central Events Centre. Ice was successfully prepared in the Events Centre Arena last week for programming over the weekend. Check our schedule for public skating, shinny, and parent/tot skating times. Programming at the Co-Op Arena begins on October 10.
We are excited to launch a new online facility calendar and booking system that will change the way our ice schedule is presented. We appreciate your patience in advance as we transition to this new system. It’s an ongoing process that will be tweaked and refined along the way and we’ll be working with users of the facility to get more of their information online. Some things will look a bit differently but we are confident the overall user experience will improve once everyone gets familiar with the system.
Instead of publishing a new Ice Schedule document weekly, we are redirecting to our new online calendars. At /kindersley.ca/thingstodo/iceschedule, you will find a link to West Central Events Centre (WCEC) page, as well as links to the Iron Horse Kindersley Klippers and Kindersley Minor Sports websites.
Here’s a quick breakdown of how to find what you’re looking for:
- At the bottom of the West Central Events Centre (WCEC) page, you will find a schedule of all the current bookings for the entire facility. You can also view individual schedules and availability for the Co-Op Arena, WCEC Arena, Multi-Purpose Room, etc. by selected the applicable area in the sub-facility list.
- Click on the View Facility Calendar button if you wish to view the schedule in month format.
- “RESERVED” will appear for all time periods that are currently booked for a private group. At each group’s consent, we will begin to display names (i.e. KMS or Skating Club) and other information for the public. As the season progresses, we will work with user groups to post their content and provide links to their sites.
- Public Skating, Shinny, and Parent and Tot Skating times will show on the calendar as these are public programs scheduled by the Department of Community Services. A click on a public program will bring up information about that session such as start and end time as well as which arena the program will be happening in. If you choose to click on “View More Details” it will bring up more information such as the rules, ages, and at the bottom if will have a complete schedule.
Note: The public programs list can also be found by clicking the “Things to Do” and then selecting “Town Programs and Activities”. *Please note that this schedule may change without notice and times will be added throughout the month.*
We will evaluate the success of the online facility calendar throughout the season with the intent of introducing online self-booking for next year. We look forward to your feedback and suggestions for improvement.
