What is The Rocky Mountain District Player Evaluation Camp?

The RMD Camp is part of USA Hockey’s player development process. USA Hockey’s Youth Council / National Player Development Committee run the national player development camps. The purpose of the national camps is to further develop, educate, and identify national team caliber players from across the country. Each of the twelve districts that makes up USA Hockey conducts a Player Development Camp. The National Boys Camps will be held in Buffalo, NY, and the girls in St Cloud, MN. Complete information about the National Camps including dates, can be found on the USA Hockey Web Site:

What is the purpose of the district camp?

There are multiple purposes and objectives of the camp.  Players attending will:

  1. Be on the ice with NCAA College, Junior, AAA, Prep School, USAH National and, sometimes, NHL personnel
  2. Have the opportunity to measure themselves against the best players in the district.
  3. Be exposed to scouts and higher level coaching.
  4. Be evaluated and ranked for selection to the gender and birth year specific National USA Hockey Select Camps.

Who is eligible to attend?

How to I qualify? Where do I tryout?
