2023 CCM Minnesota Hockey HP15 Program

The 2023 CCM Minnesota Hockey High Performance 15 Program is designed to provide players born in 2008 the opportunity to train and compete against players of similar age.

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 in late February. A nomination alone does not guarantee an invitation to tryouts.

  • Phase 1 ($110 to MN Hockey): HP 15 begins with player tryouts within the various Minnesota Hockey Districts. Players will be split into groups and will receive four hours of tryouts and a participant jersey. Tryouts are closed to spectators.
  • Phase 2 ($175 to MN Hockey, $100 to District 6): District 6 will select up to 30 players who will train for 10-plus hours with the District coaching staff. After the pre-festival preparation, 20 players will be selected for participation in the HP 15 Spring Festival.
  • Phase 3 ($250 to MN Hockey, $100 to District 6): The final 20 will participate in two round robin seeding games and the HP 15 Spring Festival (April 21-23) at the Plymouth Ice Center in Plymouth, Minnesota. The round robin format will have each team play three games in their pool. There will be three pools of four teams. The District team will have the opportunity to compete against the other Districts and showcase their skills against the top players from across Minnesota.
  • Phase 4 ($700 to MN Hockey): 102 players will be selected from the Spring Festival to participate in the High Performance 15 Development Camp in St. Cloud (June 11-16). Housing and meals are provided. From this camp, a select group will be invited to participate in the USA Hockey National Select Camp. More information on this process can be found at
  • Phase 6: The USA Hockey National Boys Select 15 Development Camp will be held in Amherst, N.Y. in July 2023. USA Hockey and Minnesota Hockey pay some of the Minnesota player expense. The best players in the United States from all USA Hockey Districts team up with the best coaches in the USA to participate in a player development camp.
