All-in-one registration and communication system to manage your hockey/skating events

Modern hockey and ice skating facilities have migrated to online event management through OpenSports to manage a high volume of daily registrations for drop-ins, public skates, stick n shoots and much more!


MedStar Capitals Iceplex

MedStar Capitals Iceplex - practice arena of the NHL’s Washington Capitals and home to hundreds of programming options for adults and children - needed a solution that would allow them to sell drop-in spots online and allow attendees to easily change their RSVP. Now with OpenSports, parents can register their kids online, and MedStar knows exactly who has paid and who is in their facility at all times.

MedStar relies on a handful of event admins who post daily events and can easily communicate with customers on the fly through the web or app. Handling the full gamut of programming including freestyle skating, public skating, drop in, stick n puck, classes, lessons, and even skate sharpening has become a breeze for MedStar admins who can rest assured that the attendees list automatically manages itself through the automatic waitlist and refund deadlines. Since the waitlist does all of the cumbersome work for them, admins never have to message players when a spot opens, or worry about last minute drop outs.

We are proud to be the solution for MedStar’s drop-in programming and work closely with the management team at MedStar to build new features such as customizable memberships, event filters, and more in-depth reports that allow them to stay on top of all transactions.
