Sync Team Calendars
Submitted By webmaster on Fri 04 04, 14
The Windsor AAA Zone team calendars are able to be sync'd with your personal computer or smart phone to allow players, parents and coaches to have up to date notifications of their practices and games.

Follow the following instructions:

Step 1: Get The Address to the Calendar Feed

This website has a single address which is used to generate the calendar feed, and that address needs to have some incoming parameters which tells the feed what team(s) schedules to return. The basic format for this address is webcal://(your domain name)/webcal.ashx?IDs=(one or more team IDs).

Each team in the site has an ID which you can see in the address (URL) when you navigate to that team's site. So if you know the ID(s) of the team(s) you want to create the calendar feed for, you can manually type them into the feed's address.

So if you know the ID(s) of the team(s) you want to create the calendar feed for, you can manually type them into the feed's address. However, to make it easier to configure the feed's address just copy the following feed addresses into your calendar:
Minor Atom     - webcal://windsoraaazone.net/webcal.ashx?IDs=1033
Major Atom    - webcal://windsoraaazone.net/webcal.ashx?IDs=1034
Minor Peewee - webcal://windsoraaazone.net/webcal.ashx?IDs=1035
Major Peewee - webcal://windsoraaazone.net/webcal.ashx?IDs=1036
Minor bantam - webcal://windsoraaazone.net/webcal.ashx?IDs=1037
Major Bantam - webcal://windsoraaazone.net/webcal.ashx?IDs=1038
Minor Midget  - webcal://windsoraaazone.net/webcal.ashx?IDs=1039
Major Midget  - webcal://windsoraaazone.net/webcal.ashx?IDs=1040
