2021 Showdown

REGISTRATION FOR THE 2021 HIGH SCHOOL SHOWCASE IS OPEN NOW

Nov. 19-21, 2021 in Aston, PA


U19 / HIGH SCHOOL PLAYERS:

On Saturday, Nov. 20, 2021 at 12:30pm, the Women's DVCHC is excited to host another girls high school showcase at IceWorks in Aston, PA! This will take place amidst the annual East Coast Showdown, where women's college club teams (which play at the national level in ACHA women's division 2), will play games over the course of the weekend. Our hope is to introduce high school players to some of the many universities and colleges in the Mid-Atlantic region that they could attend for a great education, while continuing to play fun and competitive hockey without the full time commitment of an NCAA schedule. 

There are so many benefits and opportunities that can come from staying with hockey in college, something that many young women may not even realize is out there in so many forms, and we hope that having them meet, mingle and skate with some of these coaches and players will give them a new outlook as they embark on their college application and decision process!

Any female high school player is welcome to register and attend this event. The cost will be $40 per skater/goalie, which will include a practice jersey and one hour of on ice time, plus a recruiting/meet & greet event and introductions to all teams present at the tournament. 

High School Showcase Schedule

11:30am: Check-in opens in the lobby of Rink 1. Players will be assigned a locker room.

12:00pm: It is recommended that all players have checked in by this time to get their jerseys and begin getting dressed. Full equipment is required. Don't forget to bring your own water bottle!

12:25pm: All players should be dressed and ready to get on the ice. Please meet by the entrance to the ice. DVCHC Women's Commissioner will address players before they take the ice.

12:30pm: Players take the ice (feel free to skate around and warm up for a few minutes!)

Once on the ice, the coaches will direct the flow of the Showcase. (These coaches are women's DVCHC and ACHA coaches in the division, and are excited to meet you).

1:30pm: Players exit the ice to change.

Once changed, players should proceed to the room behind the restaurant (between rinks 3&4) for the recruiting event. Teams and representatives from the DVCHC and ACHA women's divisions will be present and eager to meet you and share information about their programs!
