The 2017 USA Hockey National Championships commence Thursday (March 30) in suburban Cleveland, Ohio, with the High School tournament taking center stage.
The High School tournament will feature two divisions: Division I Pure (for single-school teams) and Division II Combined (for teams comprised of players from multiple high schools). Games will be played at the Gilmour Academy Ice Complex (Gates Mills, Ohio) and the Mentor Civic Arena (Mentor, Ohio). The Buckeye State has hosted USA Hockey Nationals on 12 previous occasions, most recently in 2011 when Mentor was the site of USA Hockey's Youth Tier II 18U Nationals.
As part of USA Hockey Nationals, some 4,000 players will compete for American hockey top honors in the sled, youth, girls, high school, adult and women's levels at 11 host sites across the United States between now and late April.
USA Hockey, in conjunction with HockeyTV, will stream all the action online. Games are available live and on-demand by visiting USAHockey.HockeyTV.com, creating an account and purchasing a subscription.
