To provide information services: buying guide, product locator, product exchanges, product videos, classified ads, and rules/standards for hockey.
To provide research: cost-of-doing-business survey, sales of hockey equipment, participation in hockey, sports logo sales, used equipment, salary surveys, and human resource surveys.
To create a collective voice regarding issues with including but not limited to Internet sales, manufacturer relations, government, safety, and bringing in new participants.
