The future looks bleak for Canadian minor hockey | Toronto Star

Enrolment in Hockey Canada teams is currently 572,000 players, down more than 200,000 from its peak. And the prospects are grim. In the next decade, some say there could be 200,000 fewer kids playing the game. Yet Hockey Canada remains apathetic to the injury problem.

A major overhaul of minor hockey is needed in Canada ó and soon. A detailed, systemic investigation of the issues confronting minor hockey is crucial.
The average annual registration and participation cost is about $1,500, according to the RBC survey; some families simply canít afford this. Local availability of facilities and resources can also be an issue.
