The Girls 16/17 Camp takes place in St. Cloud, Minnesota and includes 152 players from all 12 USA Hockey Districts. The camp features 80 forwards, 56 defense, and 16 goalies in the 2005 and 2006 birth years. At the 16/17 Development Camp, USA Hockey provides a competitive and challenging learning environment for participating players with on-ice training (drills, small area games, competitions, etc.) and off-ice training (strength & conditioning, team building, mental skills, nutrition, classroom, etc.). In addition to USA Hockey’s priority of focusing on player development, this camp is an evaluation-based camp to determine which players will advance in the remaining available spots for the Girls U18 Select Camp.
