293 views and no replies. I guess that is the way USA Hockey likes it, no one disclose anything until need be. ;)

Massachusetts hasn't had their "Festival" yet, so it will be a while before those from the Bay State are posted.

What I'd like to know and maybe this is what the original question was - what is the slot allocation per district per birth year - in other words - how many from each district per birth year get to go. Its my understanding that there is some sort of top secret formula used based on the number of players registered in the district combined in some way with the grades of the players from the prior year(s) or some thing like that, which somehow gives a number of players who can be chosen this year. If anyone has more solid information it would be appreciated.

From what I understand of the process the info you have is pretty accurate. A few years ago I was told by people involved with Mass and USA Hockey that the grades received at the NDCs help determine the number of player allotments. I don't know the specifics, other than an aggregate higher score by positions can help boost future allotments, while and aggregate lower score can result in reduced numbers of players being sent.

Pretty much spot on. At the U14 level the number of slots per district is based strictly on the player registration numbers as a percentage of the national total (with some at-large bids held by USA Hockey). At this level, some districts (most notably Minnesota) don't send kids so they take their allocation and spread it across the other districts in the same weighting as the allocations were originally done. At U15-U17 levels, they go through the same process, but the allocations are then altered by the performance of the kids from a specific district at that age level from the prior year. This was done to combat a previously common problem with highly politicized selections which weren't representative of the best kids. The theory is - If a district continues to pick lesser skilled kids based on politics, favoritism, etc. then those kids will perform less well than other districts at the NDC and the number of slots the district gets will shrink each year at that age level. So there is a penalty for not sending your best kids year in and year out. Hard to say if it really works as a disincentive to favoritism but in theory it should.

And yes - I got this a few years ago from someone with deep Mass Hockey ties.... :eek:

Each district gets certain allocations based on usa hockey membership (also perhaps how well national camp participants were rated). So, Looking back at last years allocations should give you an idea of what they will be this year. Central district tryouts isn't until last week if this month this year. They usually hand out info. They pushed it back until after nationals to avoid injuries interfering with nationals.

How does Shattucks do it? 9 goals in 55 games gets to National Camp, is the New England District having a talent problem? Mass is not in the New England District, correct? Otherwise the Assabet girls would be there?

MN needs more spots for National Camp!!!

I'm probably missing something, but are you commenting about the girl from Vermont who is going to Shattuck's and is on the New England list? I probably should have done some homework before posting, but what does HockeyEast33 mean in comment #9 that Minnesota does not send any kids, so the Minnesota allocation is spread to the other districts? Why would they need more spots if they don't use the ones they have? I'm confused.

I believe Minnesota sends kids to the 16/17 national camps. Not the younger 14/15 kids. I'm no expert.

Minnesota sends 15 year olds and up.

By the way the player you are referring to has just committed to play at Boston College as per the 2015-16 thread so yeah maybe the stats don't show the whole picture

The Midwest tryouts for development camp were this past weekend. Can't comment personally as I wasn't there but apparently many are really unhappy about the process. Even before tryouts were done many agreed that there was little liklihood of best players getting selected. Apparently a lot of people suggested changes after last year and yet no modifications were made. Heard a couple of parents wonder whether it was a waste of time.
