The Sabre Hockey Association is excited to announce the High Performance College (HPC) Showcase taking place in Bolingbrook, Illinois October 9-11, 2015. The HPC Showcase highlights the prospective NCAA Division III and ACHA female athletes available not only in the state of Illinois, but also the nation. The purpose of the HPC Showcase is two-fold. The Showcase provides a recruitment event specifically designed for the NCAA Division III and ACHA bound female hockey player, and additionally provides an educational opportunity to inform female hockey players and parents of the opportunities that exist outside of NCAA Division I. The HPC Showcase will field two divisions with six teams each at the 16U and 19U levels, featuring Tier I and the top Tier 2 Girls teams in the Nation with each team playing four games throughout the weekend.
“As prior NCAA Division III and ACHA players ourselves and current 19U girls’ coaches, we are extremely excited to host the High Performance College Showcase and promote more opportunities for the growth of female collegiate hockey. It is with this design in mind that we hope to make the Sabre Girls HPC Showcase one of the top recruiting events for the NCAA Division III and ACHA bound female hockey player,” said Alexis Giudice, Sabre Girls 19U Coach.
In addition to showcase games, there will be an open house night in which college coaches will have the opportunity to host an open forum with players and parents about the different college leagues, hockey programs and schools available as well as what they look for in their student athletes.
Sabre Girls Hockey Director, Gretchen Cockey stated, “We are incredibly excited to have 12 teams representing 9 different states attending the Fall HPC Showcase. We expect to see some very high level competition this fall.”
