Contest Encourages Efforts to Grow the Game

03.15.10--ST.LOUIS

Total Hockey teamed up with USA Hockey to challenge youth hockey organizations to grow the game for the second year in a row.  The Grow the Game Award encourages youth organizations to submit a story describing how they are helping grow the great game of hockey in their local community. The winning submission receives a $2,500 gift card to Total Hockey for their local hockey association.

Entries will be judged based on four criteria: creativity, transferability to other local programs interested in growing the game, media and marketing potential, and the overall impact the program had on the local youth association. The deadline for all entries is May 1, 2010 and all submissions should be sent to kevink@usahockey.org. The winner will be presented with the award at USA Hockey’s Annual Congress in June.

As the Exclusive Ice Hockey Equipment Retailer of USA Hockey, Total Hockey launched a campaign promoting the growth of hockey starting at the youth level. This initiative encourages hockey in the community by creating awareness of the sport, enhancing interest in the game among children and ultimately increasing involvement by learning to play hockey at a local level.

Current endeavors of Total Hockey focus on growing the game worldwide. This includes the further development of sled hockey, providing starter equipment packages to Learn to Play programs at local youth hockey associations and introducing the sport to local youth by implementing hockey in physical education programs.  All of these efforts continue to work toward Total Hockey’s ultimate goal of increasing overall interest in the great game of hockey among America’s youth.
