Each summer USA Hockey conducts Select Player Development Camps for young athletes from throughout the country. The athletes are chosen from tryouts conducted within USA Hockey Districts, with some slots reserved for at-large selections. The goal is to attract the best players, in their specific age group, to our national program. Jessica was selected and is playing with the U14 group this week.
The purpose of the Camps is to identify, train, educate and evaluate the USA's best athletes. Individuals are selected by Districts to attend the week-long event. During this week, our players are evaluated by our national scouting program, college and junior recruiters and professional scouts. The competition gives each player the opportunity to measure themselves against others his/her age, gain knowledge about his/her development and to be exposed to outstanding coaching.
Good Luck Jessica! Track her progress:
