Congratulations to all the Massachusetts Hockey players nominated to attend USA Hockey’s Select Camps this summer!
Approximately 1,050 players are invited to the USA Hockey camps each summer. The lists with 64 girls and 42 boys nominated for invitation from Massachusetts are posted as PDF links below.
Since the camps' launch in 1977, USA Hockey’s National Player Development Camps have been a springboard for countless future Olympians and professional players such as Katie Burt, Alex Carpenter, Charlie Coyle, Sammy Davis, Jack Eichel, Noah Hannifan, Frank Vatrano and Jimmy Vesey.
Players earned their invitation to the national camps through their performance at a series of tryouts and festivals held over this past season in Massachusetts.
The national camps are designed so players return home afterward with the tools to further develop their skills over the course of the coming season and beyond.
The USA Hockey National Player Development Camps for 15-year-olds, 16-year-olds and 17-year-olds provide the United States’ top young players with age-appropriate on- and off-ice training and coaching from elite-level instructors, as well as the opportunity to compete against their peers from throughout the country.
The national festivals and 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.
All the camps the players will be attending will be held at various locations dependent on the age and skill level. Click here to see the various dates and locations.
