Each season, thousands of Under-18 level female hockey players participate in their district tryouts and compete for the opportunity to advance to one of USA Hockey’s National Girls Player Development Camps. The 2015 summer series of USA Hockey Development Camps began with the inaugural 2015 Girls U-18 National Select Player Development Camp hosted in Biddeford, Maine, from June 27 – July 3.
The camp brought 66 (36F, 24D, 6G) of the top Under-18 players in the U.S. together to train and compete for an opportunity to advance to the 2015 USA Hockey Women's National Festival in August. There are no set allocations for the U-18 Select Camp, but all twelve of USA Hockey’s districts were represented.
Among the many benefits of adding this new U-18 Select Camp to the girls player development structure is the opportunity to increase the number of Under-18 girls who have the opportunity to participate in a USA Hockey National Development Camp. By adding this select camp, the number of participating girls was increased by 17 percent.
