The Boys Select 15 USA Hockey Player Development Camp begins today at Northtown Center in Amherst, New York. The top 1999 born players from around the country will gather for a week of intense training and competition.
There will be 25 (11.6%) Minnesotans participating in the camp out of a total of 216 players, marking the most players from any one state. The players were chosen based on their participation in and performance during the Reebok Minnesota Hockey High Performance Programs which continue to play a vital role in player development in Minnesota.
The selected Minnesotans recently finished a three day Pre-National Training Camp. The players were given the opportunity to fine tune their game under the direction of the area's top high school and college coaches including on and off-ice sessions.
USA Hockey’s Player Development Camps serve a dual purpose for players. The camps are the primary opportunity for players to be identified for participation on teams for current and future international competitions. However, the main goal of the camps is to fuel player development through practices, games and presentations. They receive instruction from a variety of coaches from USA Hockey, the professional minor leagues or NHL, college and junior programs as well as the top prep schools.
