2013 Junior Prep Camp Dates
Week 1: June 23 - 29
I was very impressed with the players at the 2012 Prep Camp. They were all very talented and hard working, with a real desire to improve and do whatever it takes to make the jump to Junior A hockey. I enjoyed coaching at the camp in 2012 and very much look forward to coming back in 2013!

The U.S. Junior Development Program provides the most comprehensive, elite player development program is the United States for 1993-99 born AAA, AA and Junior A/B players.
We beleive that to advance to Junior A, and then ultimately college hockey, a young elite-level player must train with bigger, better, faster and stronger players. It is our goal to provide these older, elite players just that: a comprehensive training program that provides the optimal balance between intense, age appropriate skill development and world class competition.
Our flagship program, the Junior Prep Camp, focuses on pure player development. The Prep Camp is run in one of the top collegiate venues in the U.S., with a staff of NHL, NCAA and Junior coaches, and utilizes one of the most advanced weight rooms, the Pat Bowlen Training Center, to provide a high-intensity, physically demanding player development environment.
To compliment the pure player development of the Prep Camp, we have incorporated a competition-based aspect to our program by putting together a USJDP Selects Team and competing in some of the most prestigious Junior Tournaments in the central Europe.
This unique development and competition model features the optimal amount of exposure, development and competition to create the perfect off-season development program.
