2 and 2 Challenge Registration

Welcome to the 2 and 2 Challenge Registration for the 2018-19 season! The 2 and 2 Challenge is a call-to-action for local associations. It is a blueprint that guides youth hockey leadership through national programs and tools to realize their goal of acquiring 2 new players and retaining 2 additional players than the previous season's total.

By participating in the 2 and 2 Challenge, your program will be accomplishing two things:

  1. You will drive participation in the 8 & under age group and ensure that your program continues to grow as these players graduate to older age levels.
  2. Your association will establish itself not just as the best hockey program locally, but as the best youth sports option in your community!

*If you or your association participated in the 2 and 2 Challenge in a previous season, please register with the same email address for portal access.

If you've previously participated in the 2 and 2 Challenge, please utilize the same email address.

If you do not find your association, then USA Hockey currently does not have your association registering members at the 8 & under age level. Please have your association registrar contact local Affiliate leadership to get authorized for the current season
