Happy 4th of July everyone. As a fun little holiday tie in, I figured I would like to share some insights on USA Hockey growth in Washington State.
As you should be able to see, we had a 2.6% increase in USA hockey memberships last year which coincides with our steady growth since 2002-2003.
When you break it down by age groups, you can see that a lot of the growth is coming from our lower age groups with a combined 6% increase for age groups 9 to 10 and younger.
Breaking it down further by isolating female USA hockey memberships, you can see huge growth percentages as more and more girls view hockey as a viable sport to play growing up.
