A record 315 associations in 45 states participated in USA Hockey's 2 and 2 Challenge, a program that played a significant role in the record number of American players overall during the 2013-14 season.
Associations that commit to the 2 and 2 Challenge follow a systematic year-long plan of utilizing grassroots marketing tools and national events in an effort to add two additional new players and retain two more players than their previous season's 8-and-under player totals.
Congratulations to CAHA associations that completed the 2013-14 season’s 2 and 2 Challenge!
