The Chowder Cup is one the largest tournament in North America with 32 Teams in each Division competing for the Championship.
We believe it is beneficial to line up school visits with Colleges to provide players and families an opportunity to learn more about NCAA and also have some time to speak with coaches and ask questions. Playing in our program allows players an opportunity to play with a program well connected to College coaches. We have over 100 NCAA division 1 players in our alumni. We believe these visits are not only important but will aid a player to stay motivated to achieve higher academic standards. Our program is well recognized and having friends that are college coaches ensures our program gets scouting during these events. Many teams from Ontario go to these tournaments but none have the relationship with Colleges that we do.
Our team will be formed with AAA players from North America. AA players who sign with AAA teams for the upcoming season will be accepted. The reason we select AAA players 1st is because it is our goal to bring the players from the highest skill level that are the most serious and focused on reaching for the next level. *For players travelling alone we could help and coordinate rides and shared hotel rooms.
