Spring Teams Program Q&A

What is the difference between XHP Selects Teams and XHP Selects Elite Teams?
XHP Selects Teams are primarily composed of AA, A, & B players. Some teams may have the odd AAA player on its roster.  You must attend an evaluation skate to be considered to play on one of these teams. All these team will play 10 games in the CJSHL and participate in three (3) tournaments.

XHP Selects Elite Teams are composed of only AAA players, and these teams will compete in some of the best spring and summer tournaments in the world. These teams are invite only, and every team could have a different program outline.
