USA Hockey continues to evaluate and analyze the growth and development strategies for our female hockey programs. Thanks in large to the work done at the affiliate and district levels, we have seen tremendous growth since 1998. As we evaluate the growth and needs of our programming, we continue to make modifications that will enhance the effectiveness of our development programming and our national team success. The enclosed guide outlines our recent adjustments to the U18 development programs that will continue to meet the needs of the overall growth and the advancing depth of our player pool.
This plan generates a 17% increase in the number of female players between the ages of 15-17 who will participate in our National Girls Player Development Camps.
