CCM High Performance 15 Information

CCM High Performance 15 Program (2007)

The purpose of the CCM High Performance Program is to identify, train, educate and evaluate Minnesota's best hockey players. The competition throughout the program gives each player the opportunity to measure themselves against others in his/her age group, gain knowledge about his/her development and to be exposed to outstanding coaching.

  • Phase 1: Players will participate in tryouts within their Minnesota Hockey Districts. In 2022, players must have a 2007 birthdate to participate. March 28 & March 30, 2022.
  • Phase 2: The top 30 players (number can vary upon Districts) from each District will participate in a Developmental phase, with 20 from each District advancing to Phase 3. April 29-May 1, 2022. 
    Girls Seeding Games - Fogerty Arena - Blaine, MN April 23, 2022
  • Phase 3: The District teams compete in five games, which will include three games at the CCM HP 15 Spring Festival at the Vadnais Heights, girls and Plymouth Ice Arena, boys - April 29-May 1, 2022.
  • Phase 4:  The top 102 players from the Spring Festival will be selected to compete at the CCM High Performance Summer Festival in St. Cloud.
