Our Prospects Showcase is intended for serious, competitive goaltenders trying to break into Junior and NCAA hockey. The showcase is an intense 3-day camp spanning Friday afternoon to Sunday afternoon.
All goaltenders will be evaluated in 4 key areas: On-Ice Skill & Technique (obviously), Off-Ice Athleticism, Vision Performance Skills, and will receive a Mindset & Personality assessment.
For the May 2021 Showcase, eligible birth years are 2001-2005.
We promote goaltenders in one of three ways:
- Coaches and scouts on ice and in attendance.
- Direct referrals and recommendations to our network of coaches & scouts. We've worked with 6 USHL, 20 NAHL, and other CJHL (Canadian Jr. A) and Tier 3 teams to place goalies in competitive situations.
- We create video profiles for each goaltender, including their On-Ice film and all assessment reports. These are published to an online platform, where goalies can then share their profile with other scouts & coaches.
All Room, Board, Meals are all provided. You won't have to find & pay for a hotel or food on top of the camp cost. Goalies must arrange their own transportation at the beginning and end of camp. Other than that, we have everything covered for goalies throughout the weekend.
Camp Will Include:
4.5-5 Hours of On-Ice Evaluation (3 x 1.5 Hour Sessions)
On-Ice Sessions are Video-Recorded
We edit and publish your film for you to an online platform to share and market to teams.

Our mission through the Prospects Showcase is to provide goaltenders around the world with the opportunity to showcase their talents in a unique and proprietary environment that is conducive to allowing goaltenders to showcase their skills and abilities.
This camp allows goalies to exhibit their mental, physical (Strength and Flexibility), and visual attributes...all skills normally overlooked at other evaluation camps. We bring high-level shooters out too, and put goalies through various game-situation drills to see how they think, act, and play.
Most traditional showcases have no goaltender-specific evaluation involved. They simply recruit kids and allocate them to a team to play games. Unfortunately, they have very little control over true evaluation. Once the goaltender has finished the camp they are on their own to start all over again at the next camp.
At CPGS, we strive to develop long-term relationships with our goaltenders, providing guidance throughout their careers. Our showcase is built by goaltenders for goaltenders, and used as a vital recruiting tool for coaches in the USHL, NAHL, and USPHL, as well as various Canadian Junior leagues.
Camp will start on Friday between 1-4 PM (Central Time) and will conclude on Sunday between 1-1:30 PM (Central Time). All flights and travel arrangements should be made around these rough start and end times.
We will be starting and ending camp at Urness Hall on Augsburg College's campus. The address is: 800 22nd Avenue South, Minneapolis, MN.
If you are flying in, you can easily book a cab or Uber to get to Urness Hall. We unfortunately cannot pick up goalies from the airport due to logistic issues.
We provide all room & board accommodations for goaltenders. Parents are welcome to spectate all events throughout the weekend. Hampton Inn - Minneapolis is a great hotel for parents making the trip to town. Address is 2812 University Ave SE, Minneapolis, MN 55414
