The AFA Summer Showcase is an event where players can test their skills in a competitive environment and be instructed and evaluated by advanced level coaches. Over the last 14 years, over 100 former participants have gone on to play Junior A and NCAA hockey, over 75 more have gone on to play ACHA hockey, several are playing professionally and two have played games in the NHL! My present AFA roster boasts twelve former participants alone. If you are a top level player, or someone who aspires to be a top level player, then the AFA Summer Showcase is for you!

Informational Seminars will be conducted for parents and players on Saturday, June 23, at 9:30am and 11:15am. Both seminars are identical; two are provided to accommodate player schedules. The Showcase staff will provide information on the development system, various development tracks, College Club and NCAA hockey, as well as Q and A.

TEAM PLACEMENT: Team placement consideration will be given to players who car pool together. If car pooling, make sure to note travel partners on the registration form. Positions will be filled on a first come, first served basis. All players born between 1998 and 2002 are eligible to attend. Due to the limited number of goaltenders needed to fill rosters, only 1998, 1999, 2000 will be accepted. Please be advised the Showcase is fast paced and physically challenging and demanding on goalies, so experienced goalies are encouraged to attend.

AWARDS/STATISTICS: Individual statistics are tracked. Each game features Players of the Game. Showcase Teams and Showcase MVP's are selected in each birth year.

OFFICIALS/RULES/CONDUCT: USA Hockey rules and Certified USA Hockey officials are utilized. Angular and contact checking permitted, head on and/or collision checking is not. Cheap and/or excessive physical play putting others at risk will not be tolerated, nor will any type of unsportsmanlike conduct. The Director reserves the right to remove any player whose conduct on or off the ice is deemed inappropriate.

EQUIPMENT NEEDS: Players provide their own equipment and sticks. Players are required to supply all protective equipment recommended by USA Hockey. This includes a certified helmet with full facemask (no half shields), mouth guard, hockey pants, gloves, shoulder pads, elbow pads, shin pads, and hockey skates. Each player will be provided a showcase jersey to keep.

COSTS/PAYMENT: Your online registration payment of $260.00 will confirm your spot. You will also receive a confirmation email. There is a no-refund policy; however, refunds may be granted for medical injuries with a doctor's note, or special cases (less a $50.00 administration fee).

REGISTRATION/DEADLINES: The registration deadline is June 15, 2018. Registration will close earlier if rosters are filled (rosters filled last year prior to the deadline). The rosters and final game schedule will be emailed to each player on TBD. The first games will be played on Friday, June 22. Players should check in 45-60 minutes prior to their first scheduled game to receive their Showcase Jersey, their locker room assignment, and any last minute instructions.
