Teams can request blackouts to the McKnight Ice Schedulers at any time throughout the season. Blackouts can be used for team fundraising, tournaments and events.
Example: Team wants to do a bottle drive - request a blackout for that day and your team will not be scheduled for a practice.
** This is not to be confused with the Hockey Calgary Scheduling Window Requests for the seeding & regular season.
Teams must request blackout dates from Hockey Calgary according to Hockey Calgary rules, which prevents teams from getting games booked on those dates. If you request a blackout with Hockey Calgary, DO NOT forget to request the same blackout with McKnight.
If a team requests a blackout with McKnight, practices and home games (where possible) will not be booked during the requested period BUT we cannot guarantee that away games are not booked at that time.
Rules for 'making up' lost practices due to a requested blackout:
If you would like to request a blackout date please complete the following form.
** Teams still have the ability to trade with other teams for ice. The Blackout process will allow teams the option not to have to find trades because the team would not be scheduled on those dates.
If you have any questions regarding the above, please do not hesitate to contact your division coordinator.
