The newly created USA Hockey Membership Development Department has the unique charge of growing participation in hockey among those already smitten with the game and those who’ve never put blade to ice.

Calling All Youth Hockey Associations and those “Growing the Game”!

For the past 7 years USA Hockey has partnered with Total Hockey to uncover new and innovative ways to grow the game of hockey! Tell us what your USA Hockey registered youth program is doing to increase the number of 8-and-under hockey players in your association and you'll get a shot at winning 30 Learn To Play (LTP) equipment sets from Total Hockey.

Participation in youth hockey around the country continues to grow thanks to our great volunteers and the new programs they are implementing. USA Hockey’s membership development team is committed to sharing your creative ideas with associations around the country. The winning idea will receive 30 sets of beginner equipment from Total Hockey, while 2nd and 3rd place will earn 20 and 10 sets respectively.

If you have an original idea that has helped grow your 8-and-under youth membership, please submit your entry for this award to GrowTheGame@usahockey.org. To be eligible for the Total Hockey Grow The Game Award, you need to be a current USA Hockey association that registers players in the 8 & under age category. All submissions need to be of a growth program currently being utilized by a USA Hockey association. The deadline for entries is May 16, 2014 and the award will be presented in June at USA Hockey’s Annual Congress.
