Players Invited to Attend the 2020 America’s High School Showcase Illinois Team Tryouts AnnouncedPlayers Invited to Attend the 2020 America’s High School Showcase Illinois Team Tryouts Announced

 By Mike Mullally, AHAI Director & Showcase Team General Manager

USA Hockey’s America’s High School Showcase will be conducted April 16-20, 2020 at the Centene Community Ice Center in Maryland Heights, Missouri.
Twenty-four boys’ teams from across the United States will compete and showcase their talents to scouts from every major hockey institution in the country. The purpose of this prestigious event remains the same. It is designed to allow high school hockey players from around the country, who do not traditionally get scouted due to geographic and budgetary constraints within the scouting circles, the opportunity to compete against the best of the best during a five-day period and be seen by every high level program in North America.
During the past couple of months, coaches from Illinois High Schools have been rating players throughout Illinois. The players invited to tryout have been identified as one of the best players in Illinois High School Hockey. AHAI wishes to extend to them an invitation to ‘tryout” for the team that will represent Illinois at the America’s High School Showcase. There will be three (3) tryouts for everyone to determine the final America’s High School Showcase Illinois team. Click HERE to view rosters. Good luck to all players!
The 2020 America’s High School Showcase Illinois Team will be led by head coach Jon Grzbek, from Benet Academy with Steve Silvey from Lyons Township and Greg Mrofcza from Maine Township assisting. The General Manager is AHAI Director, Mike Mullally.
NOTE: Those players trying out for the Illinois Showcase team, will have the opportunity to showcase their talents at JOG Athletics College Prospects Weekend at Fifth Third Arena which features coaches from various ACHA college programs. Please click HERE for complete details. All questions about the schedule or any specific details can be directed to Joe Caprio at: or by phone at 312-455-7612.
