Minnesota Hockey, in partnership with Titans Athletic, is excited to announce the details of the Minnesota Hockey / Titans Athletic Spotlight Classic (“Spotlight Classic”). The event will provide players at select classifications with an opportunity to celebrate their season at Andover Community Center on March 17-18.
The Spotlight Classic has been bringing players throughout the state together for an end of the season spotlight event for ten years. In 2017, over 745 players from 81 different Minnesota Hockey associations participated.
The event is structured as an all-star type of format in which teams are created with players selected from different communities to play together against similarly built teams. Players at the following levels are eligible to participate: Squirt B, Squirt C, 10U B, Peewee B2, Peewee C, 12U B, Bantam B2, and Bantam C.
New this season, Minnesota Hockey will provide players with the option to participate in select on-ice clinics at the Minnesota Wild’s new practice facility, TRIA Rink in St. Paul. The skill clinics will be led by Minnesota Hockey’s Player Development Team.
The format for selecting players will be at the discretion of the association or coaches, but Minnesota Hockey and Titans Athletic encourage consideration to be based on more than just skills. Characteristics such hard work, dedication, sportsmanship and a pure love of the game also deserve to be rewarded and should be included in consideration.
Participants in the Spotlight Classic will have the opportunity to participate in one 80-minute practice/scrimmage with their new teammates before playing in the highlight of the event, a Spotlight game. Players will also receive socks, a game jersey and a special locker room experience.
There will be a limited number of games and player and coach spots. Player selections will be accepted on a first come, first serve basis.
