About the Selects Program

Founded in 1995, the Selects program is the oldest and largest organization of its type in Atlantic Canada and is a unique program of the Atlantic Hockey Group. The program is elite, comprehensive and innovative. AHG's network of over 500 coaches ensures that the top players from Atlantic Canada will form our Selects teams. Our Selects teams consist of the Atlantic Selects, the NB Selects, and the NS Selects.  At the cost comparable to a hockey school, the Selects program offers a full training camp and tournament games with intense competition. Teams are comprised of deserving players from our respective Elite/AAA Series teams from our Super 7 to U15 levels. Teams are selected by a selection committee comprised of evaluators and our team's coaching staff. 


The Atlantic Hockey Group is always searching for high-level summer tournaments to provide our Selects teams with the optimal hockey experience. Final tournament selection will be made after consulting with our teams to determine the best fit. Level of competition and exposure is considered. Over the last 28 years, our Selects teams have participated in a variety of elite tournaments in North America, including the King & Queen of the Rings tournament in Toronto, the Canada Day Cup in Ottawa, and the Jr. Warriors Showcase and the CCM Invitational in Boston. 


The Atlantic Selects have won 37 major championships at elite tournaments. Teams have a 75% success rate in making the playoffs and over 500 players have graduated to prep school, major junior, university, and professional hockey. 

Training Camp

The three-day training camp will take place normally one or two weekends prior to the tournament. Players will receive a minimum of seven-and-a-half hours of on-ice training. The Selects male and female teams will generally have their training camps in either Halifax or New Glasgow (Nova Scotia) or Moncton (New Brunswick/PEI). The objective of training camp is to develop team systems and strategies, and to provide specialized training for forwards, defencemen, and goaltenders. A goaltending instructor is present for on-ice training sessions. The final team rosters will comprise of six defencemen, nine forwards, and two goaltenders.
