The U.S. Junior Development Program, in conjunction with the Colorado Thunderbirds and the Rocky Mountain Roughriders, is proud to announce the 2015 CCM Hockey Showcase in Denver, CO., May 22-25, 2015 as presented by CCM Hockey.

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.

Date: May 22-25, 2015

Location: Ice Center at the Promenade (Denver, CO)

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 15 years, the USJDP, Colorado Thunderbirds and the Rocky Mountain Roughriders have moved over 700 kids on to Junior A, Major Junior, the NDTP, US College Hockey and even some in 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.

Coaches & Scouts
It is our goal to have 90 or more scouts and coaches in the building during the showcase scouting and recruiting players for the 2015-16 season. These 90 scouts will see your son play… they will probably not see every game, they cannot see every game, but they will be in the building and will see your son play. That is the purpose of a showcase, to be seen by as many scouts and coaches in one location as possible.

The following NCAA, Junior, Major Junior and AAA teams have attended a previous CCM Hockey Showcase and have indicated they intend to attend once again in 2015. We expect to once again have over 90+ NCAA D1, NCAA D3, USHL, NAHL, WHL, QMJHL and other Junior A coaches and scouts in attendance this year.

Please note:
Once a coach, scout or team commits to attending the CCM Hockey Showcase we will post it immediately to our Facebook page. We encourage you all to “Like” our Facebook page to receive instant updates on all new commitments throughout the spring.
