Boston Shamrocks forwards Hannah MacDougall, Julia Masotta, Rose Mroczka and defenseman Grace Arsenault will attended the USA Hockey National Development Camp held at Herb Brooks National Hockey Center in St. Cloud, Minnesota from July 9-15, 2016.
USA Hockey and its twelve districts provide player development opportunities at the affiliate, district, regional, and national level throughout the year. USA Hockey hosts three National Player Development Camps for girls ages 15, 16 and 17. The week-long experience at any of the three camps exposes participants to various ‘best practices' and training strategies directly aligned with the U.S. Women's National Team's training, expectations, and culture so players can return home with the tools to develop their skills over the course of that season (and seasons to come).
The National Development Camp for girls brings together the top 1% of the nation's best players at each age level. Top college and junior coaches help guide the players throughout their experience at the camp. The camp also provides opportunities for the girls to make the National Team.
The weeklong sessions provide many of the United States' best young hockey players with concentrated on- and off-ice training and coaching, as well as the opportunity to compete against their peers. Over the years the best and brightest American hockey stars have shared time together at the summer camps. Players are selected from a national pool of camps in USA Hockey districts and rosters are formed by camp staff prior to the teams assembling at their respective locations.
Other Shamrocks attending regional development camps include Shea Verrier and Anna McCluskey who are attending the USA Hockey Eastern District Development Camp being held in Williamsville, New York.
