Development Team Overview

North American Prep Development Teams are put together made up of players from various organizations that work with N.A.P. all throughout the year. Each on-ice training session will focus on player development and are introduced to new aspects of the game needed to succeed at the next level. This is not a “superstar tournament program.”  We push skills, development, improvement and competitive FUN!!

The core belief for NA Prep's Development program this is “Training to Execute”.  The program will consist of:

  • Skating development sessions
  • Skill-based development session
  • High level competition – 4-5 tournaments (365 Day Calendar- 2 tournaments during the fall/winter season, 2-3 tournaments during spring/summer season.

We are proud to be Montana's Leading Player Development Program.

Seasonal Development Teams

Each season (Fall/Winter and Spring/Summer) we select players to join our age classification development teams and we are anticipating, "AA" and "A", teams at each age classification that will provide our Montana players with more opportunities for development and exposure to a higher level of competition. These teams will compete in various "AA" and "A" tournaments along with NA's Development Weekends. Development weekends will take place throughout the course of the regular season and supply our players with extra developmental opportunities.
