The NAHL Combines are driven by the North American Hockey League and operated by the NAHL’s professional staff in order to serve the most valuable asset to hockey… the players. 

NAHL Combines are an important part of the player procurement process. With NAHL Tryout Camps and the NAHL Draft taking place in late July, NAHL Combines are a perfect indicator to evaluate just how ready they are for the next step and receive valuable feedback. The NAHL understands how important the Education, Exposure, and Experience that comes with a NAHL Combine and to that end we are excited to announce the following new dates:

*Continue education about proven pathway to NCAA hockey via the NAHL’s Ladder of Development - Emphasize evaluation and further exposure to NAHL and NA3HL coaches and scouts - Provide a realistic experience of a junior tryout - Provide exposure to junior hockey on-ice habits and tools for success - Offer evaluation from NAHL and NA3HL coaches, as well as exposure to scouts from all levels.

The goal is to provide the aspiring hockey player to take part in a one-of-a-kind experience that is designed to maximize exposure at grand-scale events that provide a true look and feel of the genuine NAHL Experience. NAHL Combines are carefully designed to provide an Education, Exposure, and Experience for prospects that strive to advance their hockey development at the junior hockey and college level.

Education ensures the players are provided knowledge about NCAA compliance and eligibility, recruiting processes, the correct and legitimate path to college hockey, as well as an in-depth look at the three different tiers of junior hockey. This includes seminars that discuss the NAHL junior hockey experience, the ladder of development, as well as, virtual NCAA compliance seminars.

Exposure means that players compete in front of junior and college scouts and gain additional exposure through NAHL Central Scouting. With NAHL Tryout Camps and the NAHL Draft taking place in late July, NAHL Combines are a perfect indicator to evaluate just how ready they are for the next step and receive valuable feedback.

Experience means that players from all over North America and Europe will play multiple games against other NAHL and NCAA hockey prospects with team’s coached by staff members from NAHL, NAHL Central Scouting, and NA3HL teams, providing a top notch, professional, and memorable experience.
