COLLEGE COMMITMENTS

One of the primary goals for the Brookings Blizzard is to provide players with the opportunity to develop and to be exposed to college and professional scouts. Our network within the hockey community and connections to NCAA institutions provides athletes with opportunities to advance to the next level. As an organization we take tremendous pride in seeing our players succeed beyond their playing days with the Blizzard.

The NAHL is the “League of Opportunity.” Each fall the league hosts the NAHL Showcase in Blaine, MN that attracts coaches and scouts from almost every NCAA school and professional organization.
