The recently distributed 2016-2017 Michigan Amateur Hockey Association Annual Report named Fox Motors Hockey Club as the top ranking youth hockey organization for growth and retention in 2016-2017.
This report focuses on the foundation of USA Hockey’s player base – the 8 & under age category. It examines the entry level age group at both the National and the Affiliate level for the past five seasons, as well as the past three seasons at the local association level. The objective is to help all levels of USA Hockey’s structure understand their past performance and create achievable growth goals for the 2017-18 season.
Additionally, USA Hockey has instituted the 2 and 2 Challenge. The 2 and 2 Challenge, is a program that utilizes existing national growth programs, resources, and tools to help youth hockey leaders grow participation. To achieve these growth goals, the 2 and 2 Challenge asks associations to add two new players and retain two additional players than the previous season’s total. Fox Motors Hockey Club did achieve their 2016-2017 2 and 2 Challenge goals and furthermore, was recognized as the organization with the most player growth and retention for 2016-2017 for the state of Michigan.
We will continue to strive to introduce this great game to boys and girls in West Michigan as well as offer the development opportunities for hockey players of all abilities and desires, contributing to success.
