  • TESTING
  • Our testing is very specific.
  • Hockey International has been doing player testing for many years and have accumulated player data at many levels including the US Women’s National Program and college players.    
  • We will test players at the beginning & end of the season.  
    • The testing data shows our players (and families) how they compare to the top players in the country.
    • This "objective" data will give you a direction on how to build your future training PLAN and what you need to work on in the off-season
  • PERSONAL PLAYER DEVELOPMENT PLAN:  
    • Players should have a long-term development plan and understand what they need to work on and we will help outline this.

SEASON / TRAINING / GAME INFORMATION:

  • We are aligning our organization with the Eastern Junior Elite Prospect League (EJEPL) - New Southeast Division (which will consist of two southern showcases and a league showcase) plus a league playoff (if we qualify)
  • We also will work with our Northeast (NEHGL/EWHC) contacts for possible tourney/showcase options
