Spring 2019 CHHC Prospects Program

Welcome to the 2019 CHHC Prospects Evaluation Registration with Chicago Hawks Hockey.

CHHC PROSPECTS CAMP

This is a camp for the top players (approximately 25) at each birth year.  It is designed to produce elite hockey players by building on their existing skill set. Players will train together and against one another in scrimmages and small area games to develop their skills, work on game situational play and improve their overall competition level.

During the 7-week camp, selected players will be offered the opportunity to compete in at least two tournaments and possible exhibitions games.  This means that not every player will be asked to participate in every tournament or game.  Please note that if your player declines the opportunity to participate in a tournament, he or she will not necessarily be offered a third opportunity.  Additionally, it is important that you accept or decline playing opportunities as soon as possible so that we are able to fill our rosters.
