Boys High Performance 15

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.

  • Phase 1: Players will participate in tryouts within their Minnesota Hockey Districts. In 2022, players must have a 2007 birth date to participate.
  • Phase 2: The top 30 players from each District will participate in a Development phase, with 20 from each District advancing to Phase 3.
  • Phase 3: The District teams compete in three games at the 15 Spring Festival at Plymouth Ice Center in Plymouth.
  • Phase 4: The top 102 players from the Spring Festival will be selected to compete at the CCM High Performance Summer Camp in St. Cloud. 
  • Phase 5: Players will attend the USA Hockey Boys 15 Player Development Camps.

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 players.
