The U.S. Junior Development Program provides the most comprehensive, elite player development program is the United States for 1998-2004 born AAA, AA and Junior A/B players.
We believe that to advance to Junior and/or 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 programs, the Junior Prep Camp and 19U Prep Camp, focuses on pure player development. The Prep Camps are 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 Camps, we have incorporated a competition-based aspect to our program by putting together a USJDP Selects Team to compete in some of the most prestigious International Junior Hockey Tournaments in Europe & Scandinavia.
Over the past 15 years, players from over 20 different countries have participated in our program, including players from Russia, Latvia, Switzerland, Belarus, Austria, Germany, France, Mexico, Slovakia, England, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Japan, Hong Kong, the Czech Republic and of course the US and Canada.
This unique development and competition model features the optimal amount of exposure, development and competition to create the perfect off-season development program.
