We received an "invite only" email to this camp in Greenbay in July.
Is this a legit invite or did this email go out to everyone? If anyone has attended in the past and could provide some feedback that would be greatly appreciated.
For context, my son is a pretty strong 07 that plays on a middle of the pack AAA team.
Not true. They don’t let anyone in. Nice try
seems like a scam for a middle of pack AAA 14 year old. how much $ is the camp?
This is a futures combine for 07 and 08 kids who have an interest in one day play junior hockey in the USHL. They absolutely go by a mailing list from a database of kids on AAA teams. Even if you feel you're kid may not be on this list you can fill out an online form on the USHL website to get invited as well. Things only become selective in the older age groups.
Unfortunately somewhere along the line he played in a showcase or went to a camp where they sold the mailing list to these USHL teams.
It's not a slight against your son, but, it is a revenue producer for each team and they send out invite only to a lot of players nationwide.
If you'd like to go for the experience and see what it's about, that's great. But the expectation level should be just that. USHL teams are not preparing their draft boards from players who signed up and paid for a invite only camp.
Unless you are contacted directly by a coach or staff member, it's the same as any other invite camp. They all purchase their mailing lists.
It is invite only. If you would like a jump start and a good look from ushl coaches it’s perfect. If he’s 07 draft eligible in 2 years. I believe this is more open than the one for 06’s so why not make a good impression and get the invite next year.
you will recognize the names the same names that have been on radars.. it will be a positive event to attend. everything is invite only even winter teams at this point.. roll eagles
You pay for these full season teams hoping scouts are there. Your bender gets invited to an event that has scouts its a waste of time and money. Just go to Lobster Fest this weekend and enjoy yourself.
