If you are an aspiring junior hockey player that wants to take your game to that extra level, the NW showcase in Everett is exactly what you should be looking for. Not only will the competition elevate your play but you will be placed In front of the eyes of many junior hockey scouts and coaches. The NA3HL, NAHL, USHL, and even the WHL always seem to consistently be in attendance, and you will receive multiple opportunities to showcase your skills and open doorways to reach that next step In your hockey career.

Two years ago I attended the showcase and had a chance to play excellent, fast paced hockey all while trying to break into a good junior hockey league. Not only did it turn out to be a great hockey experience, but it also gave me multiple opportunities to play at the next level. Following the camp, I was fortunate enough to sign a contract with the WHL's Everett Silvertips where I had the chance to play major junior hockey my first year of juniors. After my stint with the Tips I had an excellent safety net in the North Iowa Bulls NA3HL team. The past 1.5 seasons in North Iowa I was fortunate to win a national championship with friends/teammates that I will have for the rest of my life, and at the same time have the most fun I've ever had playing the game. It's hard to say exactly where I'd be today if I hadn't went to the NW showcase, but I sure am happy that I did!
