Minnesota Hockey announced today the selectees and alternates for the 2017 CCM High Performance 14 and 15 Summer Camps. The week long camps for the top boys and girls hockey players in Minnesota will be held during June at St. Cloud State University in St. Cloud, MN.
The Girls 15 Summer Camp will take place June 10-15, with the Girls 14 taking place concurrently from June 11-15. The Boys HP 15 Summer Camp will be held June 17-22 and the Boys 14 will run from June 18-22.
The players selected for the summer camps were determined based on players’ performance in the 2017 HP 14 and 15 Spring Festivals on April 21-23. A total of 120 players move onto the HP 14 camps and 102 advance to the HP 15 camps.
Players at the summer camps will be exposed to a series of on-ice and off-ice development opportunities while training with and against the best players in the state. They will have the opportunity to learn from prominent college and high school coaches who team up with current and former college hockey players to serve as coaches, role models and counselors for each team.
The top players from the Boys and Girls 15 Summer Camps will be chosen to represent Minnesota Hockey at a national festival/camp sponsored by USA Hockey involving the best players from each of the USA Hockey districts. The national festivals/camps are used by USA Hockey to identify the top performers in each age group for possible opportunities to represent the U.S.A. at advanced levels of national and international hockey competition.
The Boys and Girls 14 Summer Camps are final phase of the CCM High Performance Programs for that age group.
