The 2 and 2 Challenge is a comprehensive growth program for all USA Hockey associations that register 8 & under players. This program is a blueprint that guides youth hockey leadership through national initiatives and tools to realize their goal of acquiring 2 new players and retaining 2 additional players than the previous season's total.

Associations that accept the 2 and 2 Challenge will focus on the three components that drive growth: Acquisition (new players), Retention (repeat players), and Conversion (transitioning try hockey kids to full time youth hockey players).  By participating in the 2 and 2 Challenge, your youth hockey association will establish itself not just as the best hockey program locally, but as the best youth sports option in your community.

As an added bonus for your growth efforts, participating associations will receive free starter equipment packages and national recognition. Last season, 264 associations successfully completed the 2 and 2 Challenge and over 2,300 starter equipment packages were awarded.

To see a full list of associations that completed the 2 and 2 Challenge and start growing your association, visit www.2and2challenge.com.

This season, 264 associations across the country were able to successfully complete the 2 and 2 Challenge.   The breakdown of associations completing the 2 and 2 Challenge are:

  • 143 associations achieved Gold status 
  • 30 associations achieved Silver status 
  • 91 associations achieved Bronze status 

As a result of their efforts in growing youth hockey, these local associations will be rewarded with OneGoal starter equipment packages totaling over 2,320sets. 

USA Hockey would like to recognize these associations and congratulate them for their hard work and dedication throughout the year.  For a full list of associations completing the 2 and 2 Challenge, please click on the document link below.
