April 4, 2019
Guilford, Connecticut - The New England District of USA Hockey has announced their selections for the 17U Boys 2019 USA Hockey National Player Development Camp. The top boys’ hockey players were selected to represent New England following their performances at the New England 17U festival held in March at Attleboro, MA.
We are excited to congratulate Jon Horn from the Elite Hockey Program, on advancing from the New England District to the 17U (2002) USA Hockey National Player Development Camp, held June 25 – June 1, 2019 in Amherst, NY.
Horn will have the opportunity to skate with the other top 2002 birth year players in the country at the Select 17 USA National Camp. The USA Hockey’s National Player Development Camp will consist of top 2002 players that will be involved in intensive practices, games and off-ice training all geared toward strengthening young American hockey players.
“We are excited about the opportunity that Horn has earned at the national level.” Said Peter Alden, Elite Hockey Program President. “It’s an exciting time for these young players who have the chance to go up against the best and work with USA Hockey’s outstanding coaching, guidance and training”.
About the USA Hockey National Player Development Camp: The USA Hockey National Player Development Camps for 15-year-olds, 16-year-olds and 17-year-olds provide the United States’ top young players with age-appropriate on- and off-ice training and coaching from elite-level instructors, as well as the opportunity to compete against their peers from throughout the country.
Players earn invitation to the national camps through their performance at a series of state- and district-level camps held each season. The camps are designed so players return home afterward with the tools to further develop their skills over the course of the coming season and beyond.
The USA Hockey National Player Development Camps also serve as an evaluation environment for players competing to represent the U.S. at international tournaments and events including the Ivan Hlinka Memorial Cup, the Under-17 Five Nations Tournament, and the Under-18 National Festival in Lake Placid, New York.
Since their launch in 1977, USA Hockey’s National Player Development Camps have been a springboard for countless future Olympians and professional players.
