ProHockeyIQ Solution

What is the ProHockeyIQ Solution?

ProHockeyIQ offers a cloud based membership solution through a one-time payment, ranging from 30 days to 365 days of active search.

I have a traditional sports agent, why do I need ProHockeyIQ?

If your traditional sports agent provides you with the necessary focus and contacts, then you could use ProHockeyIQ as a compliment. If however, your sports agent does not have the bandwidth to serve you as a Tier 2 athlete, ProHockeyIQ would be a more cost effective support for you.

Is ProHockeyIQ only for North American teams and players?

No, ProHockeyIQ is a global network for Hockey Clubs and Players. We are looking to help teams and players find new and interesting options all over the world.

What kind of information will be included in a Player profile?

After a player registers as a Player Member, there will be statistical information, detailed contact information and other relevant information about the player with regards to education and other off-ice aspects. There is also the possibility to add references and conditioning test results.

What kind of information will be included in a Hockey Club profile?

After a hockey club registers as a Hockey Club Member, there will be information about the hockey club, its facilities, where it is located and detailed contact information for key staff.

As a player, after I have set up my profile, how does the search feature work?

The search feature will allow you to search for teams based on parameters that are important when deciding where to play. In order to review your results in our team database, you will have to purchase a time period for our active search. Under this period, you may search and review as many teams as you wish. You can then send a contact request to your search results. If the team accepts your request, then both parties will have each other’s contact info. All accepted contacts are saved under a tab that you can review, even when you have not paid for active search.

As a hockey club, after setting up our profile, how does the search feature work?

Very similar to that of a Players search. Hockey Clubs will be able to search for players based on certain criteria that they find important in evaluating a player. To search for players, Hockey Clubs first purchase a number of days of active search. After reviewing their list of matches, Hockey Clubs can send requests for contact information to players. The payment for active search works the same way as for players, and similarly all accepted contacts are saved for future review. One difference for teams is they have the option to post Open Slots. Open Slots allow teams to post (and organize) their current roster needs, and can specify that they wish to search for those slots.

Can players and teams make it so nobody can contact them, for when there is no need to find new matches?

Yes, each party can use a "Do not contact me" feature by simply marking a checkbox.

Why can't I alter my statistics, weight, height or position?

Unfortunately, all changes to statistics have to be made directly through EliteProspects. We are simply a partner of theirs, and cannot alter it on their page. We do not allow our members to alter their profile height, weight, statistics, or birthdate because we want to ensure all of this information comes from an unbiased, outside source. Please contact EliteProspects via their "Contact Us" pop-up on their homepage.

ProHockeyIQ Job Board

How does the ProHockeyIQ Job Board work?

The ProHockeyIQ Job Board allows coaches to search for open hockey coaching positions with teams all over the world.   Coaches can pay to create a coach listing that allows them to promote their coaching experience, which can be seen by teams all over the world.  Teams can pay to create a job listing that provides details of the open position on their team, such as the job title and job description. If a coach finds a job listing that they wish to apply to, they can provide their information on the listing page and the Team can consider them for the position.  As a ProHockeyIQ Hockey Club or Coach Member, you have the option to automatically fill out your team's information.  Also, if you have active search on your account, you and your connected coach will be able to create a new listing for free.

How much does the job board cost?

As noted previously, any Hockey Club Member and connected Coach Member with active search can create a listing for free. For Hockey Clubs that do not have active search, coaches, and other staff types, please refer to the Pricing Section for details.

Can ProHockeyIQ remove Job Board Listings??

Yes.  We reserve the right to remove any listings at any time without notice, and without refund, if we determine that the contents of the listing are in non-compliance with the ProHockeyIQ Terms and Conditions.  If you have any questions, please contact support.

Is there any guarantee for a hockey club to find the right player or coach?
