- Can I check facility availability online?Yes! Clicking here will provide access to our Pickering Soccer Centre Facility Scheduling Portal. The Portal will facilitate two types of access for our customers (both current and potential).
For customers who wish to look at the events running at the facility, they may now have access to the PSC Facility Events Calendar. If, for example, you want to find out when Drop-In Soccer is running, you can check the calendar. No user logon is required.
For customers looking for an available time slot, user logon is required. You will be able to search the Facility, by date, time, and field or room of your preference, and then submit an email request for an available time slot. No request becomes a booking without formal email acceptance from PSC booking staff.
IMPORTANT: In order to avoid account duplication, customers who have previously booked/rented time at the Pickering Soccer Centre are asked to email firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance with creation of a logon. Please do not create a new account on your own.
- What information is required to set up a booking?The first thing that is required is a customer account for you and your organization. Information needed to set up an account includes:
- Contact Name of person arranging/using the booking
- Mailing address, including postal code
- Preferred contact phone number
- Preferred contact email address
- Name of your organization
Then we need to set up the actual booking. We need to know the following:
- What space do you require? Specify full, half, quarter when booking a field and full or half when booking a room. For room, be sure to indicate setup requirements: classroom, theatre style? Do you need audio equipment? Do you require the kitchenette to serve food?
- Duration of your requested rental – 60 minutes? 90 minutes? etc
- Date of your requested rental (give options if you can)
- Time frame of your requested rental – are you looking for, as an example, 1pm-3:30 or 8pm – 10:30?
- Please describe your event – is it a training session, a game, a classroom session, a team meeting?
Once the account and the booking are set up, you will be sent (via email) a booking invoice.
- Once I have set up a booking, what happens next?
You will receive an email with attachments. One of the attachments is the booking invoice, the other is a Terms & Conditions document. Also attached is a “Stop Sign” document that outlines what is not allowed in the dome.
If you also receive an email indicating that a Digital Signature PIN has been created for your account, it will enable you to digitally sign contracts and other correspondence created on your behalf. We recommend you record the PIN information and store it in a safe place for future reference.
If the digital signature function has been enabled for you, you will be requested to sign with your digital PIN to approve your new booking.
IMPORTANT: ALWAYS READ YOUR TERMS AND CONDITIONS AND REVIEW YOUR INVOICE FOR ACCURACY! Without reading and then digitally or manually signing your Terms and Conditions, and making a deposit payment on your booking (in accordance with the information outlined), your date/time-slot IS NOT FIRM and can be cancelled at the discretion of the Facility Manager or the Booking Coordinator.
