The 40 players will be taken to the Boston Summer Showcase in Marlboro MA where they will play at the NCDC level against other NCDC teams. This is a 3-day Showcase and PHC will incur the cost for Busing and Hotel while the team is in Marlboro, MA. (food is not included).

The Philadelphia Hockey Club’s NCDC team will roster 23 players for the 2020-2021 hockey season.
PHC will proudly help place players who do not make the NCDC team and can and will offer certain players the opportunity to play for the PHC USPHL Premier team, U18, or U16.

Main camp is also designed to see players at the younger ages for future Tender and Draft-eligible players. This is a great opportunity for players who may not think they are quite ready for the NCDC level but want to get the experience of playing at the highest level possible.
