Associations can get started growing for the 2017-18 season again with the 2 and 2 Challenge! The 2 and 2 Challenge guides youth hockey leadership through national programs and tools to drive participation at the 4 to 8 age group. By growing hockey at this age group, programs will experience long-term growth as these kids continue to develop.
By participating in the 2 and 2 Challenge, your program will be accomplishing two things:
1. You will drive participation in the 8 & under age group and ensure that your program continues to grow as these players graduate to older age levels.
2. Your association will establish itself not just as the best hockey program locally, but as the best youth sports option in your community!
