The National Team Development Program is the pinnacle of USA Hockey’s amateur player development program. The NTDP scouts and selects the top 22 players in two age groups (Under-17 and Under-18) to train and develop in a highly competitive environment. The two teams (Under-17 and Under-18) face a rigorous domestic schedule including competition against older, more- developed players.

The Under-17 Team plays a majority of a 60-game junior schedule in the United States Hockey League against opponents whose age range is 17-20. The Under-18 Team ‘shares’ the junior schedule, playing about 25 games, while also playing a challenging schedule against top NCAA Division I and III teams (ages 18-24).

Perhaps the most unique attribute to playing with the NTDP: both teams play several age-specific international events a year against national teams from around the world.

In addition to the game component, the players face a daily routine of off-ice development that includes strength training, cross-training and cognitive skill testing. Players must maintain strong academic standards and almost all earn full scholarships to top colleges. Finally, players are taught that from the moment they join the NTDP, they are representing the United States of America, at home, at school and abroad—24 hours a day.

What does U17 and U18 mean?

The “U” represents “under” and the numbers represent the age of the players. On the U18 Team, all of the players were born in 2000. On the U17 Team, all of the players were born in 2001. These designations are commonly used in sports such as hockey and soccer around the world.

Where do the NTDP players come from?

The objective of the NTDP is to develop the most promising players from anywhere in the United States. NTDP players come from all across the country. In the 20-plus years of existence, the NTDP has had players hail from 35 states, with the majority coming from Michigan, Minnesota, New York, Massachusettes, and Illinois. 

The NTDP players are tracked and evaluated for two years prior to coming  to the NTDP.

The culmination of the two-year scouting process is an annual, invitation-only NTDP Evaluation Camp that will be held in March here at USA Hockey Arena. The 22 members for the U.S. National Under-17 Team are selected from that process.
