Colorado Select is proud to announce that we have partnered with the U.S. Junior Development Program (USJDP) to assist them in growing their Girls 19U Prep Camp while also raising money and awareness for our Selects program.
The USJDP 19U Prep Camp will be held in Magness Arena at the University of Denver and provides high caliber development for the elite player; in fact a number of Select players have attended the camp in the past and can attest to the level of coaching and training received through this program.
We are very excited to align ourselves with the USJDP and see this as a excellent opportunity for our players to learn from some of the top NCAA D1 coaches in the US. In addition, we view this as a chance to help grow the game of hockey in Colorado by giving our players access to an amazing training opportunity, and we are fully on board with helping a program that will create more interest and awareness for girls hockey in our state. In fact, we have recently confirmed that former Colorado Select and Union College D1 player Jackie Koetteritz is working the camp and will be the On-Site Coordinator and Housing Director!
"Attending USJDP was really helpful because it is not just a skating clinic. It combined skills development on and off the ice. On ice drills helped me improve my skills at my specific position, which happens to be defense. At the same time the off-ice development helped me improve how I stretch and workout to improve my overall development. Having access to the college coaches was very helpful. They talked to us about not only what to expect at the college level, but also what they look for in the recruiting process. I would encourage any player interested in advancing their game to level needed for college to attend this camp."
-- Liberty Attencio, Colorado Select, 19U Tier I, player
In the spirit or our partnership, the USJDP has agreed to donate back to our organization $75 for each registration received from the Selects. This money will be allocated towards the Colorado Select Scholarship Fund. Please find links below to the USJDP website to learn more about the camp and register.
