NAHL Combines are an important part of the player procurement process. With NAHL Tryout Camps and the NA3HL and NAHL Drafts taking place later this Spring and Summer, NAHL Combines are a perfect indicator to evaluate just how ready they are for the next step and receive valuable feedback.
Education ensures the players are provided knowledge about NCAA compliance and eligibility, recruiting processes, the correct and legitimate path to college hockey, as well as an in-depth look at the three different tiers of junior hockey. This includes seminars that discuss the NAHL junior hockey experience, the ladder of development, as well as, virtual NCAA compliance seminars.
Exposure means that players compete in front of junior and college scouts and gain additional exposure through NAHL Central Scouting. With NAHL Tryout Camps and the NAHL Draft taking place in late July, NAHL Combines are a perfect indicator to evaluate just how ready they are for the next step and receive valuable feedback.
Experience means that players from all over North America and Europe will play multiple games against other NAHL and NCAA hockey prospects with team’s coached by staff members from NAHL, NAHL Central Scouting, and NA3HL teams, providing a top notch, professional, and memorable experience.
