NA Prep has put together an excellent select program for highly skilled athletes that will represent western regional hockey, in one high-level tournament that will take place in the spring of 2019.
Nine forwards, six defensemen and two goaltenders will be individually selected to join the North American Prep Western Development Program centralized out of Whitefish, Montana. Players that are selected can either be recommended by their coach or chosen by NA Prep development team to represent the western region, there are no try-outs or evaluations, and players are selected by their proficiency and hockey merit.
The 17 players will compete in one major tournament, the Alberta Champions Cup Tournament, in Calgary, with eight states having the potential of being represented on the roster. So far, California and Montana are leading the way in the roster occupancy, with five natives each.
NA Prep is the newest and fastest growing hockey program to hit the west, and we are excited to get this underway. Player's that are selected to attend the NAPDP will arrive 36 to 48 hours before tournament competition and take place in 4.5 to 6 hours of player/team development and activities before participating in the competition. We look forward to bringing you the western regions first developmental program.
