The purpose of the CCM High Performance Program is to identify, train, educate and evaluate Minnesota's best hockey players. The competition throughout the program gives each player the opportunity to measure themselves against others in his age group, gain knowledge about his development and to be exposed to outstanding coaching.
The Spring and Summer Festivals provide excellent opportunities for our players to be seen by junior, college, and NHL scouts. In addition, players have the opportunity to be evaluated for potential participation in national camps.
Traditionally, Minnesota has about a 50% turn over in players selected to national camps from one year to the next. In 2012, there was about 58% turn over from the previous year's National 15 list and 38% turn over from the previous year's 16 list. This is proof of the large talent base here in Minnesota, our dedication to a fair, non-biased evaluation process, and the continued development our our players.
High School coaches are strongly encouraged to nominate their 2001 eligible players for the program. The nominations should be sent to the appropriate district GM. If you have any questions regarding the tryout process please feel free to contact me at the email contact listed below.
