After three very successful MJHL Prospect Development Camps, the MJHL is proud to officially announce that the 2020 MJHL Prospect Development Camp will take place once again this summer in Winnipeg at the impressive Seven Oaks Arena Complex from July 23-25.
The camp is by invite only geared towards current MJHL Prospects born in the years 2003 and 2004 who are eligible to play in the MJHL for the upcoming 2020/21 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 MJHL Hockey is all about, an opportunity to work with top level coaches and players and the platform to showcase themselves to coaches and scouts from all levels,” said MJHL Commissioner, Kevin Saurette.
“This event continues to grow in stature both on and off the ice and we are very excited at the talent level of the prospects that have been invited to this years camp. If you look across the league right now, many of the top players from last season have participated in this camp and/or have already moved on to higher levels through this camp and a year in the MJHL,” Saurette concluded.
The main goal of the camp is to prepare the prospects on and off the ice for what it takes to be successful in the MJHL and what it takes to get to the next level (NCAA, Major Junior, USports, NHL). 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.
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 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.
This camp will follow all protocols and procedures associated with the recently approved MJHL Phase 1 return to play guidelines.
Please stay tuned in the coming weeks as more exciting announcements are still to come.
