    • Yes.

Will there be a souvenir shop during the event?

    • Yes, local company Greer’s Graphics will be on-site for all souvenir wear. Hats, hoodies, t-shirts, and more.

How does the draft work, how are players divided up?

    • The draft is based on player performance on Day 1, as well as historical data. The teams are split evenly for fair and good competition. Players are ranked, team GMs and Coaches get a selection based on a lottery held prior, and the order of selection is then determined. The time leading into the event always plays a role in the rankings, as well.

What are some tips for players?

    • Prepare for a long four days with long hours and intense on-ice and off-ice sessions. Lots of dry clothes is important, as well as plenty of socks. Blisters are very common at an event like this. Hydrate. The more you bring the better off you will be. Come to the event well prepared in top fitness.

What happens following the event?

    • Scouting reports and testing results will be submitted to your respective team. If you are not drafted, your report will still be on Neutral Zone Scouting and on Elite Prospects for all teams and scouts to see.

Elite Prospects Special GIFT to players:

    • During the event, you will be asked to sign up for your Elite Prospects profile and one-year membership as part of their sponsorship, this means every player will receive a full one-year membership as part of their registration, valued at $149.99 per year. Elite Prospects will be set up during the event.

Note to parents:

    • Parents will be able to attend the draft and the opening meeting. Normally, parents would be invited to all classrooms and events throughout. Due to the numbers, it will be very difficult to accommodate this. We ask that parents simply attend the draft and opening only. Parents are encouraged and welcome to all on-ice events. If a parent wishes to register for the coaching symposium, as a coach or interested party, that is no problem.
