Is Junior hockey the next step in your career? Our hockey advisors are well-connected with multiple leagues across Canada & USA.

  • CANADA: BCHL, AJHL, SJHL, MJHL, CCHL, OJHL, NOJHL, SIJHL
  • USA: USHL, NAHL, NCDC, EHL, USPHL

Both Canadian and US junior leagues vary in level and exposure, but regardless of the league you play in, there will be collegiate scouts watching at some point. Certain AAA/prep programs are feeders to these leagues, so finding the right program before junior is important. The cost for junior hockey varies based on the league, but ranges from free-to-play to around $10,000 for the Tier 3 programs. Some Tier 2 Canadian junior programs are in the range of $2,000-$8,000.

Some key things to think about when playing junior hockey are:

  • Team reputation
  • The intended role you will play on the team
  • The opportunity for advancement to the next level

When deciding upon a junior team, players work with advisors to get them exposure ahead of the following season, so you can be set to go without needing to spend a lot of money on mini camps.
