The 2018 Annual Business of Ice Hockey is a great resource of information on participation and sales data in the United States and it is now available!
You can find out what happened with overall participation in hockey in the United States in 2017 along with data by age, household income and region. Sales data is also included for hockey skates, sticks and helmets and ice skates along with a projection of sales for 2018.
Members of the Hockey Dealers Association, and National Sporting Goods Association members with an interest in hockey, should have received a free electronic copy of the report as a member benefit. Printed copies of the report are available to members upon request.
The cost of the report is $295 for non-members. Purchasing a one-year retailer membership in HDA for $150 is a great way to not only receive the Annual Business of Ice Hockey report, but also to keep up with news and information on the industry and to utilize various cost-saving services.
