Texas Affiliate Camp (Boys)

2018 TEXAS AFFILIATE CAMP (Boys)
March 23-25, 2018

Irving, Texas

2018 Texas Affiliate Camp (Boys)

The Boys Texas Affiliate Camp (TAC) will be held at the Valley Ranch Dr. Pepper StarsCenter March 23-25, 2018.

The objective of TAC is to evaluate the Affiliate’s top players at their respective position and age group (Boys: 2001, 2002, 2003, & 2004). Based upon each player’s performance in a series of structured drills and scrimmages, TAC evaluators will select a limited number of players at each age group and position to represent TAHA at the Rocky Mountain District (RMD) Player Development Camp, which is scheduled for May 10-13th in Dallas for the 2001-2003 age groups and June 16-21st in Colorado Springs for the 2004 age group.

Similar to last year, our TAC evaluators will be experienced hockey coaches from outside the state of Texas and Oklahoma. Our goal is to improve the integrity and consistency of the player evaluation process by eliminating the natural biases that can occur when coaches are evaluating groups of players that include those from their own team and/or association.

TAC is intended for our top players at each birth year. While the registration process is open, it is recommended that coaches speak with their players about which players fit this category. 

The registration process will be the same as last year. Registration will be open, by current playing level, until all the slots for a given Birth year and position are full.

The registration process/schedule will be as follows:

Association leadership/coaches will be sent a link(s) for their players to use for registration. (Associations with teams in multiple categories will receive multiple links).  Each player will follow the instructions from the link to register. 

  • Players currently on Tier 1(AAA)/Prep School Rosters: February 12-16th
  • Players currently on a Texas AA (DSTHL) Roster: February 16-18th
  • All Players living in the Affiliate: February 19th until slots are full

NOTE: All registrations will be validated. Any player attempting to register before they are eligible will be disqualified from participation in TAC. Please also note that, in fairness to all those on the ice, if there are players who clearly “don’t belong” with the group they will be cut after the first skate.

Additional Requirements:

  • All registrants must be citizens of the United States
  • All registrants must be have official permanent residence in the state of Texas or Oklahoma
  • All registrants must be members in good financial standing of their respective Association and with USA Hockey

​​​​Additionally, please remind all potential participants that if they register for TAC, they are also committing (if selected to advance) to attend the District Level Camps (May in Dallas for 2001, 2002 and 2003 Birth years, June in Colorado Springs for 2003 Birth year). Registered players will receive details on the camp in early March.

Cost of the camp is $140.
