Soccer registration

Soccer registration higher than hockey

Soccer has become more popular than hockey as a participation sport in this country, with 867,869 players registered with Soccer Canada in 2007 (including 732,521 under age 18) compared with 545,363 with Hockey Canada in 2006-07. The lower cost associated with soccer is often mentioned as the reason, but the lower pressure level - both on kids and parents - might also have something to do with it.
