Hockey Rink Review App – Rink Rater

Hi – I’m Senan Gorman, Hockey Dad & designer behind the Rink Rater app. As I was standing in an older rink that was way colder than expected,  I thought – “It would’ve been nice to know how chilly this rink is!”  A few off-side calls later (some questionable), the idea for the Rink Rater app was furiously ‘jotted’ notes into my phone and the rest is history…to be made.

If you’re a Hockey specific business, have a hockey product, offer Camps, Clinics or Coaching, etc., we’re currently accepting marketing partnerships to participate in the app and would be happy to discuss a collaboration.

Please Contact Us if you’d like to be included in the Rink Rater App!

Our Featured Partner, MyHockeyRankings.com:

Rink Rater My Hockey RankingsMYHockey was developed as a way for fans of youth hockey to spread the love of the game. It started simply as a set of links to hundreds of clubs so people could easily locate clubs/teams to assist in scheduling games. Links were good, but soon it was obvious that we wanted real information about each team, their record, their league, who they are playing, etc. It quickly became apparent a team’s record was not a viable indicator of their strength.

This led to questions about which team was truly better and exactly how you might measure a team’s strength or weakness. Within a year, we realized that the site must have some sort of team rating/ranking to be the tool that we envisioned. What started as a quest for locating opponents of the same skill level, MYHockey Rankings evolved as a tool to help youth hockey coaches, managers, players and fans learn more about the sport we all love.

These images tell a story of what the Rink Rater app is all about!

Celebrating its 41st season in 2016-17, the NAHL, the only USA Hockey-sanctioned Tier II Junior league boasting 24 teams in 12 states from across North America, prides itself on the social maturity and skill development of student-athletes ages 16-20 with aspirations of advancing to collegiate and/or professional hockey.

The NAHL offers junior hockey players the opportunity to develop, learn, train, grow and succeed, while playing for free. The NAHL is unique in the fact that a vast majority of players begin their NAHL careers without an NCAA opportunity, but earn one through the course of their development in the league.

The NAHL’s dedication to player development is demonstrated by the league’s high-profile annual exposure events like the NAHL Showcase in September, the NAHL Top Prospects Tournament in February and the NAHL Robertson Cup Championship in May, which have all evolved into hockey’s most prominent and popular of its kind and are a must-see for NCAA programs and NHL teams alike.

During the 2015-16 season, the NAHL set a new single-season record with 259 NCAA commitments, 67% of which were NCAA Division I commitments. In addition, 12 NAHL players were listed on NHL Central Scoutings Players to Watch list for the 2017 NHL Draft and five NAHL players that played in the league this past season were selected in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft.
