    How to Spend Your Summer Vacation

summitWith time off in the summer months, prospective players often ask college coaches how to maximize the summer months as they pursue Division I hockey. Some advice from top coaches:

  • Don't try to play in every showcase event you can. They have value, but beyond one or two you can spend your time more wisely.
  • Spend some time improving your game. Work on an area where you aren't as confident, or pick one of your strengths and focus on getting even better.
  • If you want to attend a hockey school, check out the camps run at college campuses; they are a great way to see a school and get instruction from college coaches.
  • If you are in the U.S., try out for the USA Hockey Select Festivals, held in Rochester, N.Y., in July.
  • Take some time to get away from the game; relax and recharge for the upcoming season.

"There are some games I get chills go through my spine because of the crowd. The top of this place gets blown off because the sound echoes off the roof and down to the ice. And all of this (success) has created an excellent buzz around campus, from the professors on down." - Taylor Nelson, Ferris State goaltender
