California High School Ice Hockey Teams to Compete in America’s Showcase 

California Amateur Hockey Association (CAHA) is excited to announce that California will be sending two teams of High School ice hockey players to participate in the 2016 Annual America’s Showcase National Hockey Tournament. Players from the Anaheim Ducks High School Hockey League (ADHSHL), Los Angeles Kings High School League (LAKHSHL) along with the Northern California High School Hockey Leagues will combine to form Team CA.  As a result of the growth of HS hockey in California, a second team will participate in this prestigious national event being held at the Robert Morris University Island Sports Center, April 14–18, 2016 in Pittsburg, PA. Team San Diego will make their inaugural trip to the tournament allowing players to represent that growing area.

Selected to lead the 2016 edition of Team California in this tournament will be Coaches Dan Adams (Orange Lutheran), Jeff Noviello (JSerra) and Mike Perkins (JSerra).  This staff has lead Team California for the prior 4 years and has the experience to lead and promote the student-athletes to the many scouts in attendance.  Leading the first year Team San Diego will Dr. Jason Galea (Poway) and Dan Wagner (La Jolla Country Day). 

“As high school hockey continues to grow in California, the talent level increases as well.  Each year the try-out process is more contested, this is great opportunity for student-athletes.” says Coach Perkins.  “Last year’s performance was a great experience, we need to continue that success and show that California players can compete nationwide.” states Coach Adams. 

This tournament is an annual event for scouts from many colleges, junior hockey programs, and central scouting organizations throughout the country to come and see some talented players compete.

Both teams can consist of only junior and senior students in good academic standing who participate in the high school leagues throughout the State. Try-outs for Team California have been held and the following is a Press Release on the selected players
