ÖEHV and My Ice Hockey digitalize the youth sector
Press Release from 31.1.2023
With its partnership with My Ice Hockey, the Austrian Ice Hockey Association is taking the next important step in terms of digitalization and professionalization in the domestic youth sector. The coach/player software from My Ice Hockey will specifically standardize player evaluation within the selection teams from U14 to U20 and thus provide all coaches with important information. The system will also be used for all women’s junior national teams, the women’s A-national team and the Para-national team.
The app-based application captures interviews, evaluations, test results, statistics and much more, which can be output as player dossiers. Players are evaluated according to standardized criteria, which creates an improved overview and supports the national team coaches in their daily work.
The tool will be used in all men’s junior national teams, from U14 to U20. My Ice Hockey will be implemented step by step until the summer. From summer 2023, the IT system of the new ÖEHV partner will be used exclusively.
Florian Mühlstein, ÖEHV Training & Development Manager Junior: “Besides a standardization of player evaluation, the direct exchange between national team coaches and club coaches is an important aspect. Through My Ice Hockey, we ensure the greatest possible transparency, as the respective club coaches can access the data, information and evaluations of their players. We are happy to have gained an established and experienced partner in My Ice Hockey, who also cooperates with the established A-nations Switzerland and Germany and who will incorporate all their experience into the development of the software. For our national team coaches, this digitalization step means an enrichment and a relief in their daily work.”
Marco Bäschlin, Managing Director Force8 AG (producer of My Ice Hockey): “We are extremely pleased to be able to cooperate with the ÖEHV. We are convinced that we complement each other very well and can help shape the digitalization in Austrian ice hockey.”
About My Ice Hockey
The philosophy of My Ice Hockey is simple: we want the administrative work for ice hockey coaches to be simplified and more efficient. We do this with our software program, My Ice Hockey. This tool is programmed by an experienced ice hockey coach. Therefore our slogan is not an empty phrase: from Coach to Coach.
My Ice Hockey greatly simplifies the workflows of ice hockey coaches. Part-time coaches become more efficient, more structured and can be accompanied better.
We took up the trend of simplifying processes by means of electronic tools seven years ago. Since then, we have been constantly developing My Ice Hockey with state-of-the-art programming technologies.
