The purpose of the CCM High Performance Program is to identify, train, educate and evaluate Minnesota’s best hockey players. The competition throughout our 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 Festival and Final 54 provide an excellent opportunity 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 had about 50% turn over in players selected to national camps from one year to the next. In 2012, there was 58% turn over from the previous year’s National 15 list and 38% turn over from the previous year’s National 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 of our players.
Registration is currently open. To register, please contact your Section General Manager (see below) or High School Coach.
More information on the structure of the program and associated fees will be posted this winter.
Boys HP 16 players will be selected from 2001 birth years.
