What is USA Hockey’s Adult First Goal Program?

usah adult program ahaienewsThe Adult First Goal Program is equipment based and designed to provide USA Hockey-registered adult hockey leagues a national platform of resources to introduce new adults to the sport. Being a good partner in the business is about joint efforts between USA Hockey and registered adult leagues to grow the game.
