Atlantic District Tryouts

We will be holding our tryouts March 13-15, 2015 for our Summer camp and Select Players.  Tryouts will be held at the Loucks Ice Arena at the Lawrenceville School in Lawrenceville, NJ.

Loucks Ice Center
Lavino Field House - Lawrenceville School
Lewisville Rd.
Lawrenceville, NJ 08648

Female players with the birth years: 1998, 1999, 2000 and 2001 are encouraged to participate in the Atlantic District tryouts.  Participating players will be evaluated by a team of independent coaches under the direction of USA Hockey staff.  Players will be selected to attend the Atlantic District Development Camp in Voorhees, NJ as well as USA Hockey National Player Development Camps held in St. Cloud. MN and Lake Placid, NY based on individual skill level.

USA Hockey has re-designed the National Player Development Camps in order to promote and provide increased development for girls.  Key points of change include:

  • U14 players, (2001BY) will not attend National Development Camp in St. Cloud, MN. Our 2001 birth years players are highly encouraged to attend tryouts, and if selected, attend the AAHA District Camp.  The number of U14 players allocated to attend the AAHA camp will increase.  Information regarding additional U14 Development will be made available at tryouts

  • The number of players attending the 15U National Player Development Camp will increase

  • A new U18 National Player Development Camp consisting of players from 15-18 has been added and players who are eligible for this camp will be selected from the AAHA tryout in March

More information regarding the USA Hockey National Player Development Camp and our AAHA Player Development camp will be made available at the tryout weekend.

USA Hockey Girls U18 National Player Development Guide

USA Hockey continues to evaluate and analyze the growth and development strategies for our female hockey programs.  Thanks in large to the work done at the affiliate and district levels, we have seen tremendous growth since 1998.  As we evaluate the growth and needs of our programming, we continue to make modifications that will enhance the effectiveness of our development programming and our national team success.  The enclosed guide outlines our recent adjustments to the U18 development programs that will continue to meet the needs of the overall growth and the advancing depth of our player pool.

This plan generates a 17% increase in the number of female players between the ages of 15-17 who will participate in our National Girls Player Development Camps.
