Introducing ePlaySJ – The City of Saint John’s Facility Booking Software


The City’s Parks and Recreation Service Area is pleased to launch ePlaySJ, a new online booking system for City arenas. Saint John arena users will now be able to request ice time from their computer or mobile device, thanks to the new software.

Recreation staff have been using the software now for about a year with leagues and other primary arena users. It is now available to the general public. ePlaySJ allows citizens to view arena schedules, request ice time, create and manage their accounts online. A deliverable of PlaySJ, the Parks and Recreation Strategic Plan, the software aims to improve access to City facilities and streamline the rental process for both users and staff.

Anyone from a senior hockey league to a parent booking a birthday party can use the system. A link to ePlaySJ can be found at www.playsj.ca.
