Calendar Questions

You can sync every NJ Bandits Team Calendar with your favorite program (Outlook, Google Calendar, iPhone/iPad, etc.).

Each program is a little different and may require a little bit of work. To sync the calendar for your favorite team, visit the team page. You will notice at the top of each page is a five day view of the team's calendar. This view has three links directly below the fifth day: View All, RSS and ICAL. Click ICAL for the general directions and the link for adding this calendar to your program. Copy the link and paste it into your program.

Google Calendar

When adding the calendar to Google Calendar, it automatically gives it the name "New Jersey Bandits Events". If you are adding multiple Team Calendars to your Google Calendar, we recommend changing the Calendar's name.

Click the down arrow to reveal the Options. Click Calendar Settings. (You can also change the Color Label of the calendar here.)

Change the Calendar Name and click Save.

Google Calendar and iOS Devices

Google Calendars added to your iPhone or iPad do not automatically sync. These additional steps must be taken to allow your Bandits Calendar to appear.

  1. Visit the Google Calendar sync page.
  2. Check or uncheck the names of any calendars.
  3. In the bottom right corner, click Save.
  4. When you're done, refresh your calendar.

Additional Google Calendar Help can be found on the Google Calendar web site at https://support.google.com/calendar/answer/99358.

Event Labels and Tags

iOS Event DetailsEvery item on our Team Calendars has a Title and a Tag. The title is simply the name of the event (i.e. - Practice, Tournament, 18AA Blue at Flyers, etc.). 

If you have added multiple calendars to your iOS Calendar or other software, you can see with which team the event is associated as well as additional information in the Notes or Description of the event. 

Some Event Titles will be generic (such as Practice) to conserve space. Some events may span multiple teams. Instead of listing each team in the Title, we use the tags to identify which team is associated with the event. We recommend using the device or calendar program color labels to assist you in identifying the team associated with the event.

The color of the label for a particular calendar can be set either in the Calendar app or on the Google Calendar web site.


SportsEngine App

The easiest way to follow your team is to download the free SportsEngine App (iOS or Android devices).  Once you have downloaded the app, you can add as many teams as you want! To add a team, find the Team ID on the Team's page. The Team ID can be found directly under the Bandits logo in the banner. Type the ID into the app and your team will appear. Tap the star to add it to your favorites (save the team).

 

By adding a team to your app, you will receive notifications for events and games. Notifications can be customized by team on the Account tab in the app. Team Members (players and coaches) can use additional features such as RSVP and Messaging.


Notifications and Linking Accounts

One of the most important features of our new site are the new communication tools and notifications.  Registering for a free SportsEngine account is the first step. By registering, your profile can be linked directly to a rostered player. Rostered players receive important notifications directly from the team's coaches and managers. Players can also RSVP when an invite is sent.

If you require more than the registered person to receive team notifications, there is a feature that allows you to add multiple e-mail addresses.

These two articles explain the process:

Notifications can also be received via text. This video explains the process. (Access to the Notifications page is on the Account Settings page.)  Please make sure your contact information is correct.


Time To Score

The Ice Vault Arena uses Time To Score for all home games.  If you will be keeping score and would like to learn how to use our computerized system, please watch the following video tutorial:
