We are proud to announce the 2018 CCM Hockey Showcase for 1998-2003 birth year AAA, AA and Junior A/B players in Denver, CO, May 25-27, 2018 as presented by CCM Hockey.
The CCM Hockey Showcase is the #1 scout and coach attended Junior A Showcase in the U.S. Last year we had 396 Bantam-Midget AAA/AA and Junior A/B players and 125+ coaches and scouts in attendance from 21 different North American leagues, and now 14 different countries.
The CCMHS is a Junior Hockey Showcase, not a pro hockey showcase. The purpose of the CCMHS is to help move all participants on to Junior, Major Junior and NCAA college hockey. Due to this stated purpose, our recruiting efforts are focused on bringing in the best Junior and NCAA coaches and scouts possible. By attending the CCMHS you ensure that your name, talents and stats will get into the hands of the coaches and scouts that can help you make the jump to the next step in your career.
Why choose the CCM Hockey Showcase?
There are a lot of Showcases out there, why should we attend this one? Simple, our proven track record of developing and moving players to the next level.
Over the past 18 years, the USJDP, Colorado Thunderbirds and the Rocky Mountain Roughriders have moved over 800 kids on to Junior A, Major Junior, the USNDTP, NCAA Hockey and even Europe. We have a proven track record of moving kids on and up to the next level.
Development and exposure is what our three organizations are known for and what we believe in. We are not here to put a 16-year old in the NHL, we are here to move them on to Junior A, with the ultimate goal being NCAA or Major Junior hockey.
