Grow the Game

We require each program in our league to make a commitment to grow the game within their own organization or commit to partnering with another local organization to work together to facilitate growing the female game.  This is a great opportunity for some of our older players to give back by volunteering at try-hockey-for-free girls events as well as help build a sustainable feeder to each of our league members programs.
