Adult Recreation

Involvement in adult recreational hockey has increased dramatically; Hockey Canada and its member branches are in year three of a five-year partnership with Canlan Ice Sports/ Adult Safe Hockey Network, and more than 97,000 players were registered for the 2013-14 season, up from 12,000 in 2010-11. The goal is to surpass 100,000 registrants in 2014-15. Hockey Canada and Canlan continue to work on a recruitment plan, which is implemented annually to increase membership across the country, with positive evidence of growth already seen in a number of branches without Canlan facilities. The future of adult recreational hockey is an exciting one, and Hockey Canada is looking forward to continued growth in this segment of its membership.
