HP14 Program Information

The 2023 CCM Minnesota Hockey High Performance 14 program is designed to provide players born in 2009 the opportunity to train and compete against players of similar age. Eligible players played on a AA/A, or High School team for the 2022-23 season.

Players are nominated to tryout by their AA/A and High School coaches. The District will select and invite players based on nominations. Invites will be emailed.  A nomination alone does not guarantee an invitation to tryouts.
