The Kånken Youth Retention Award

Is your ice hockey club successful in recruiting, educating and keeping young boys and girls in your development program?

Apply for the 2022 Kånken Youth Retention Award for the chance to win €10 000.

The Alliance of European Hockey Clubs, together with our partner Fjällräven, will for the second year, reward a youth hockey club in Europe with €10 000 for their work in developing and retaining young ice hockey players, boys and girls.

With the Kånken Youth Retention Award, the E.H.C. Alliance and Fjällräven wish to contribute to growth within European youth hockey, with a focus on retaining young players in their program. Our contribution of €10 000 is meant to be a reward and encouragement for a club that focuses on youth development.

The club applying for the award must be in Europe and the club’s program must be specifically focused on youth development.

The application period for the 2021 Kånken Youth Retention Award has expired.

Welcome back next year!
