The Pre-Draft Showcase is one the largest tournament in North America with 80 Teams competing for the Championship.
Our program is unique as we try to arrange for our teams to get the best bang for your buck! We use this event to evaluate talent for the BCHL and promote players to NCAA Colleges. We try to have our teams in the Boston area for 2 days prior than the event to ensure we have enough time to see colleges, practices as a group and allow for families to see the city. We coordinate College visits and practices prior to the event. 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 players from North America. Midget AAA, Jr. B or Jr. A.
Hotel - Hilton Dedham $135 NIGHT We have already reserved our block of rooms and once your spot is confirmed with our team, you will be given an access code to call and add your name on one of the rooms.
Team Practices We are anticipating to have a practice Wednesday and Thursday in Boston area prior to the event.
2 Practices will be in Boston prior to tournament (NCAA coaches will participate in one of the team practices)
1 Team seminar for parents and players
1 Team meeting for structure and hockey chalkboard
Itinerary We would ideally be at the hotel Tuesday May 7 so we can start our tour and practices on Wednesday. Keep in mind we will schedule an activity by organizing NCAA school visits and meeting with NCAA coaches to answer questions. We usually get a favorable schedule and organize our schedule to allow families to have some time to visit the city.
Staff We pride ourselves in having excellent staff focused on helping players but realizing the importance of having fun within the game in a controlled environment.
