Pacific District Girls Player Development Camp
USA Hockey Pacific District Girls 2023 Player Development Camp
The 2023 Pacific District Girls Player Development Camp will be held May 4-7, 2023 in Summerlin, Nevada at City National Arena. The camp will consist of elite players within the Pacific District at the 14, 15, 16, & 17 age levels.
Camp information, including hotel accommodations, will be available in early 2023.
What is the format of the Camp?
The Camp will emphasize skill development and provide an opportunity for players to get instructions and feedback from college coaches and current NCAA players/mentors, then measure themselves against the best players from the Pacific District. Players attending the camp will be placed on teams, with a team leader, upon arrival and will be on the ice with NCAA College, Tier I, Prep School, and USAH National personnel twice a day. There will also be off- ice sessions, hockey related educational seminars, and college fair. Through this process, Pacific District players will be evaluated for selection to the National USA Hockey Select Camps.
How will players advance to the National Camp?
All of the camp’s on-ice instructors and coaches are asked to evaluate players throughout the camp for one or more birth years. USA Hockey scouting will be specifically focused on selecting players to the 18U Select Camp directly. At the conclusion of the camp, the individual instructor/coach’s player rankings will be compiled to form an aggregated player ranking. From there, and based on the allocations allotted to the Pacific District, players will be selected to advance to the National Camp.
Who is eligible to attend and how do I qualify for the Camp?
All female US citizens whose primary residence is within the Pacific District and are age 14, 15, 16, and 17 are eligible to compete for an opportunity to attend. Each Affiliate in the Pacific District (CA, OR, WA, NV, AK) ) has been given allocations to the Camp. Each Affiliate holds a Player Development Camp to select players to attend the Pacific District Camp. All players wishing to attend the Pacific District Camp can only advance to the Pacific District Camp through their respective affiliate.
I go to school and play out of my District. Am I still eligible to attend?
USA Hockey determines player eligibility for camps based upon a player’s primary residence (where your parents pay their taxes). You must tryout through your district process. If you cannot make your Affiliate (State) camp, then you need to work through your Affiliate to arrange to be evaluated at a camp local to you. Do not attend a camp local to you unless you have coordinated with your State Player Development Director.
Contact your Affiliate and your State Player Development Camp Director for details and to make arrangements.
Why should 14U players attend the Pacific District camp if there is no 14U National Camp?
Besides the opportunity to “be seen” by a significant number of coaches and scouts, this camp provides huge player development opportunities and will enable the 14U player to experience what they will see the following year as they compete for an opportunity to attend a National Camp.
