USA Hockey announced today a multi-year extension with partner Toyota, one of the most prominent automobile manufacturers in the world.
Toyota will continue as the title sponsor of the Toyota-USA Hockey National Championships for the youth, girls’/women’s, high school and sled hockey divisions, a status it has enjoyed since 2012.
“We’re excited to continue our relationship with Toyota,” said Dave Ogrean, executive director of USA Hockey. “They’ve been a terrific addition to our corporate partner family and we’re particularly pleased to have them involved with our national championships.”
The Toyota-USA Hockey National Championships are held each spring and mark the culmination of the season for teams across the country.
“Toyota and USA Hockey have established a great relationship to inspire the journey of the players, coaches and fans, and we look forward to going places together for seasons to come,” said Ed Laukes, vice president of marketing for Toyota.
