Player Development Camp Tryouts
Massachusetts Hockey is pleased to announce that we will be conducting tryouts to select players to attend the USA Hockey Player Development Camps and the Massachusetts Hockey Player Development Camp this summer. Any registered USA Hockey player born in 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, & 2001 is eligible to attend. It is strongly recommended Non-Massachusetts residents tryout in their respective district. In extreme circumstances, a preapproval from the player development committee chair is required.
During the Festival Tryouts and Festival Weekend, the players will be evaluated by experienced college hockey coaches who have no direct affiliation with any of the players trying out. Our goal is to improve the integrity and consistency of the player evaluation process by using highly qualified and professional coaches.
For Open Tryouts, players will need to register for one of the Open Tryouts being held throughout Massachusetts. After all of the tryouts are completed, Massachusetts Hockey will conduct the Festival Weekend. A goalie evaluation session will take place to further evaluate the goaltenders skills prior to the Festival for all goalies who attended an Open Tryout. The goalies will then be selected to the Festival.
During the Festival Weekend, a parent meeting will be conducted by the Head Evaluator to explain the tryout process and expectations, the USA Hockey Player Development Camp and the Massachusetts Hockey John Cunniff Player Development camp, as well as answer any questions.
