The Fellowship of Christian Athletes Hockey Group is hosting the 9th Annual “Team FCA Select Camp” on May 31 - June 3rd (this is the week after Memorial Day week-end). For the first time ever, the camp will be held on the campus of Liberty University in Lynchburg Virginia with the on ice sessions taking place at the school's newly renovated complex.
The camp is open to all male players between the ages of 16 and 20 years old (1998-2002 as well as select 2003's), from both the United States and Canada. The number of participants is limited to 102 and fills up fast, so please apply as early as possible. Campers will have the opportunity to receive instruction, practice and compete over the 4 day period (4 games per player).
Players will be divided into 4 - 6 teams, with a general manager as well as 2 or 3 coaches per team. Coaching staffs will consist of Professional, NCAA Division 1 and 3 head and assistant coaches, preparatory coaches, and junior (USHL, NAHL, NCDC and WSHL) and high school coaches. Players from Tier 1,2 and 3 junior teams as well as high school and midget programs will be represented.
