Do You Want to Play Prep School, Midget AAA, Juniorís or College Hockey?
Coming May 21-23, 2010, Colorado and surrounding state hockey players have the opportunity to show off their talent at the 6th Annual Junior Placement Showcase. JPS hockey showcase will be at Apex Arena in Arvada and will start at 3:00 pm on Friday, May 21st and will end at 1:00 pm on Sunday, May 23rd.
Attending and participating in JPS hockey showcase will be coaches and GM’s from Midget AAA, Prep School, Junior A, and College (Division I-III) programs from the United States and Canada. Last year there were more than 60 programs involved at the showcase. These coaches/GM’s will coach behind the bench and provide informational sessions to players and their parents regarding their respective programs during the weekend.
Director, Brad Buetow, stated that he believed there was a need for this hockey showcase so the Colorado and surrounding state athletes could be noticed and further advance their hockey careers. Brad has had more than 20 years experience as a head coach at the University of Minnesota, United States International University, and Colorado College, was named “Coach of the Year” 5 times (both in the collegiate and professional levels), played professional hockey, and has been director/coach for 9 years in Colorado Midget AAA programs where he has placed over 75 players in Junior A and over 40 players in Division I-III college programs. “I know Colorado has great potential to move players on to other programs so they can accomplish their lifelong goals of getting a quality education and continuing to play hockey. That is the sole purpose of JPS!”
In addition, many players from previous JPS camps have received offers from various programs throughout the US and Canada. According to Brad, attending JPS is like attending over 60 individual camps, thus saving money and yet maximizing player’s exposure.
