AHAI is proud to present the 25th annual series of Seminars on the opportunities in ice hockey after high school. We’ll talk about Men’s and Women’s Division I, III, Club Hockey, Junior College, Prep Schools and Junior Programs. A wide array of topics will be discussed that will include short discussions on:
- Making a College Hockey Team – “What does it take besides hockey skills?”
- Financial Aid – How do you apply?
- How to pick the right school for you?
- NCAA and the new stricter rules for admittance for athletes.
- Making the Grades – How important is it?
- Should I play Juniors/Junior College before college?
- Prep Schools – Should I go or should I stay?
- USA Hockey Camps/Festivals
- America’s Showcase Team
- Chicago Blackhawk Alumni Scholarship Program
There will be an Open House where more than 20 colleges and Junior teams will be available for you to talk with. Attendance is a must for all players (male & female) born in 1999. Players born in 1998 or 2000 are also welcome to attend. This seminar will be a must for the 2000’s next year.
Attendance will assist in consideration toward AHAI sanctioned Player Development events including, but not limited to, AHAI sponsored Clinics, America’s High School Showcase, etc. High School, Bantam & Midget age players and Girl’s born before 1999 who have not attended a College Night Seminar in the past are also encouraged to attend. Everyone else is invited and encouraged to attend this FREE Seminar, including parents and friends of ice hockey.
