Brady Schultz Selected for the USA National Camp
July 1st, 2019
Guilford, Conn., – We are proud to announce that Elite Hockey Program’s own Brady Schultz has been selected to attend the select 15 USA Hockey National Player Development Camp! Each year, the top players from each state in the region are selected to take part in the New England District Camp with hopes of being awarded a trip to USA Hockey National Player Development Camp. That being said, Elite Hockey Program congratulates Brady on his selection, and we are looking forward to seeing him compete with the best players in the country at this national festival.
The New England District announced these selections after concluding their own camp this past weekend in New Hampshire. These few players selected in the New England region will represent the district on the countrywide stage at USA Hockey National Player Development Camp from July 15th to the 20th in Amherst, New York.
Schultz will be among the nation’s top players from the 2004 birth year at the camp. Aimed at developing the country’s next generation of elite-level players to eventually compete against the top players in the world, the camp will consist of rigorous practices, competitive games, intense off-ice training sessions, and progressive seminars.
“It is an honor to take another step forward in this process and dream of mine,” said Schultz, who will not only be exposed to the nation’s top players, but also to the top-tier coaching and mentorship that USA Hockey has to offer.
The Elite Hockey Program congratulates Brady on this tremendous accomplishment! We look forward to helping him prepare for this event and having him as a crucial piece of our 16U Premier team this 2019-2020 season.
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 across 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.
