At the recent GROW Illinois Hockey Summit, AHAI set an ambitious goal of 50 participating Host Sites for USA Hockey’s Hockey Weekend Across America, presented by CCM, which is highlighted by a national Try Hockey For Free Day on Saturday, March 1st.
“We see a big jump in new players every time the Winter Olympics occur. After the last Winter Games in Vancouver, we saw a 15% jump in new players and enjoyed our largest total of 8 & under players in USA Hockey history. March 1st will be a unique opportunity for local youth hockey associations and rinks to capitalize on that interest and drive more new families to their programs. We are looking for local programs to commit to be a March 1st host site so that together we can hit new participation records.” – Kevin Erlenbach, Director, Membership Development
The FIRST 500 associations to register as a host site will receive jerseys, giveaway items, marketing tools, USA Hockey sanctioning and much more. Click HERE to learn more/view FAQs.
