About The Program

The Selects Hockey Program was formed in 2003 to give young athletes an opportunity to compete against, develop and play with the top teams and players in the world. Our North American Boys Spring youth hockey teams are invite-only and run from ages 11-15. We have more than 20 different Selects teams across North America and Europe that boast an impressive list of alumni who have gone on to play in the NHL, CHL, World Juniors, and Division-I college hockey. Rosters are comprised of the very best AAA youth hockey players across the U.S. and Canada.

We are committed to working with dedicated, talented young hockey players from around the globe in their offseason, providing them with the highest level of coaching, development, education and competition.
