TO: All players born 1997-2001
RE: Changes and dates for the USA Hockey National Development Camp and the Central District Development Camp
I want to apologize to all for the delay in getting this information out to everyone. USA Hockey is in the process of making some changes to the National Camp program, and like any change, in order to make them effective with the least amount of “hassles”, it takes time…so here are the IMPORTANT DATES FOR 2015:
February 15 – 28, 2015
Online registration for USA Hockey National Development Camp and the Central District Development Camp. Any player interested in an opportunity for an invitation to attend the National or the Central District camp must register for this tryout.
March 13 – 15, 2015
Central District Tier I & II (if necessary) playoffs for USA Hockey National Tournaments, hosted in St. Louis, MO.
March 26 – 30, 2015

April 9 – 12, 2015

April 17 – 19, 2015
Tryouts for the National Development Camp and the Central District Development Camp at Blue Line Family Ice Center, Fond du Lac, WI. Any player interested in attending either camp MUST tryout this weekend.
May 21 – 24, 2015
National Female Goalie Camp for the top 18 goalies in the nation (ranging in age from 14 to post-grad National team goalies). When additional information is released on this camp I will post information on all available websites.
June 21 – 26, 2015
Central District Development Camp hosted in Green Bay, WI. (142 players for 1997-2001 birth years).
June 27 – July 3, 2015
National U18 Select Camp, location TBD. (66 players will be invited; additional details will be released as I receive them).
July 8 – 14, 2015
U18 Girls National Development Camp hosted in St. Cloud, MN. (180 players for birth years 1998-1999).
July 17 -July 23, 2015
15’s Girls National Camp, hosted in St. Cloud, MN. (216 players – 2000 birth year).
CHANGES THIS YEAR:
There will be NO National Development Camp for players born in 2001, but for years the Central District has offered a development camp for players that are turning 14 in this birth year (2001), and this year will be offering 6 teams of 17 players (2 goalies, 6 defense and 9 forwards) for 2000-01 players. For the 1997-1999 birth years we will be offering 2 teams of 20 players (total of 142 players) from the district attending this camp. In late January the staff of DI, DIII and Club Hockey coaches and counselors will be announced along with the cost of the camp. ANY PLAYER INTERESTED IN ATTENDING THIS CAMP MUST ATTEND THE APRIL 17-19 tryouts in Fond du Lac, WI.
The National U18 Select Camp will be made up of 66 players in the three age groups that USA Hockey is offering at the National Camp. Additional information will be made available when plans have been finalized (hopefully mid-January at the USA Hockey Winter meeting).
Also in mid-January, the plans for the Central District High School Showcase Team in Pittsburgh will be finalized and again will be made available on all websites in the district.
Hopefully I have explained to all what is available for all players born in 1997-2001, and am looking forward to working with all as the Central District continues to grow and develop girls’ hockey.
If you have questions/concerns about any of the opportunities available for all registered USA Hockey players feel free to call or email me at 920-758-3063 or firstname.lastname@example.org
