CAMP OBJECTIVE

The PEOC Prospect Showcase Camp is designed for an advanced to elite level official – at any age – who is looking to improve their overall skill set while taking on the challenge of officiating a high level of hockey.  Whether your personal goal is to advance to the next level or you desire to adopt officiating as a profession, the PEOC Prospect Showcase Camp will assist you in obtaining your personal officiating aspirations.


This camp is customized for those officials who are currently working, or desire to be hired to officiate, high levels of hockey with true aspirations to advance their officiating careers.  


The Instruction Staff and Camp Guests at the PEOC Prospect Showcase Camp will be comprised of those currently involved in the officiating departments and administration offices of both collegiate & professional hockey leagues.

During the PEOC Prospect Showcase Camp, participants will participate in both on-ice and off-ice physical conditioning modules. The results of the on-ice and off-ice physical testing will be included in each participant's PEOC Individual Camp Report (ICR).  The ICR will be sent directly to officiating administrators in junior, professional, and collegiate hockey leagues throughout the country.
