The Manitoba Junior Hockey League (MJHL) is proud to officially announce that the 5th annual MJHL Prospect Development Camp will take place in Winnipeg at the impressive Seven Oaks Arena Complex from July 14-18.
The Prospect Development camp is by invite only, geared towards current MJHL Prospects born in the years 2004 and 2005 who are eligible to play in the MJHL for the upcoming 2021/22 season.
“The MJHL Prospect Development Camp provides the next generation of MJHL Players with the knowledge and resources to be successful both on and off the ice, an experience of what playing in the MJHL is all about, and the platform to showcase themselves to coaches and scouts from all levels of hockey,” explained MJHL Commissioner, Kevin Saurette.
“This event continues to grow in stature, both on and off the ice, and we are excited to host this important league event once again this summer. When you look across the MJHL right now, many current players have participated in this camp with many more having already moved on to higher levels of hockey through this camp and a year in the MJHL,” Saurette concluded.
The camp activities will emphasize the elements these players will need to focus on to transition successfully from elite minor hockey to elite Junior A hockey.
In addition to MJHL coaches / scouts, each year the Camp is highly attended (In-Person or Virtually) by scouts from higher levels of hockey including the WHL, USHL, NCAA, U Sports and the NHL, providing an amazing opportunity for players to further showcase their abilities.
Players will receive both on and off-ice skill development led by experienced professionals in their respective fields. The on-ice program will consist of skill and practice sessions along with modified games / scrimmages, the off-ice portion will cover elements related to athleticism and mental skills, as well as the technical and tactical skills required to play in the Manitoba Junior Hockey League.
The MJHL will continue to monitor and adjust to public health orders in lead up to the planned event in July.
