USA Hockey has nurtured the growth of female hockey since the 1970s, and today, girls hockey is among the fastest-growing youth sports in the United States. In the 2018-19 season, more girls and women participated in ice hockey than ever before with nearly 83,000 lacing up the skates. Over the past 10 years, girls and women's hockey participation has grown by 34%.
USA Hockey is hosting a virtual leadership conference entitled Game On: Empowering Women in Hockey Together on Friday, Feb. 19 and Friday, Feb. 26. Building off the inaugural event that took place in Anaheim, Calif., in February 2020, the 2021 conference is intended for current and future leaders in youth hockey and will provide attendees an introspective look at how leadership can develop positive team dynamics and skills to apply at the grassroots level.
Time for the conference on both days is from 3:00-6:30 p.m. ET. To register for the 2021 event, click here. Please note, registration is limited and on a first-come, first-serve basis.
