Each year dozens of exceptional Ann Arbor families open their homes to 44 of the finest American amateur hockey players in the nation. These selfless families provide a vital service to the success of USA Hockey’s National Team Development Program. USA Hockey is always looking for families to take in players and provide homes and a family environment for the student-athletes who attend Ann Arbor Pioneer High School.
In the 15 years NTDP players have been eligible for the NHL Entry Draft, 228 players have been drafted by National Hockey League teams, including three number-one overall selections — Rick DiPietro, Erik Johnson and Patrick Kane. Sixty NTDP alumni saw action with 26 different NHL teams last season (2012-13). Over 300 players have "graduated" from the NTDP to skate for NCAA Division I colleges.
If you or anyone you know is interested in hosting a player and are located within the Ann Arbor School District, please contact USA Hockey at (734) 327-9251 ext. 323 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Families receive a monthly stipend and complimentary season tickets to USA Hockey home games.
