Have you ever dreamed of playing hockey in North America? Do you want to take your game to the highest level possible? As part of our Boston Pre Draft Showcase team you are guaranteed to be seen by scouts and coaches from leagues such as the NHL, NCAA, USHL, NAHL, NCDC and more.
In May 2019 we brought 34 players to the Boston Showcase, and our success level was unbelievable. Future Star Academy Team Black made it to the quarter finals and Team Blue became second in their group, missing the playoffs with just one goal. Every Future Star player were offered at least one opportunity to further their hockey careers in North America, with most players receiving numerous offers, including one player being drafted first overall in the NAHL Entry Draft.

TESTIMONIALS BOSTON SHOWCASE TRIP 2019
We are very satisfied with the trip and the organisation around it, everything was very professional. It was very valuable to get an insight into North American hockey, how it works and how big the hockey is. Good presentations from coaches and students about college and junior hockey. The visit and tour of Boston University was impressive. But above all else, it was great to see a lot of good hockey in different arenas.

I had the pleasure of scouting Future Star Academy, as well as getting to know their coaching staff. The values they reinforce and instill in their players are exactly what coaches are looking for at the collegiate level, and they make it a way of life for themselves, and the athletes. The coaches are honest with their players and understand what it takes to play at the highest levels, which makes them a credible resource. The players are highly skilled, work hard, and welcome any instruction or constructive criticism. Their athletes take care of themselves away from the rink, and show strong leadership characteristics with the examples they set for others.

I decided to go to the showcase with Future Star Academy because I wanted to play junior and college hockey in the US. I believed this was the showcase where I could present myself to the most scouts and therefore be able to play at the highest level I could. Throughout the tournament I spoke to around 15 coaches and 8 of them offered me contracts, which was a lot more than I expected. Another great and unique thing about the Future Star Showcase trip is that you are coached by many different coaches from different teams who gets to know you really well, not just based on watching your games but by watching how you act at practices and outside the ice. If you want to play hockey in North America, I definitely recommend this trip because it will get you more opportunities than you can get elsewhere. Besides that, the trip is really well organized and there are no problems regarding things like accommodation or transportation.

We went on the Future Star Academy Showcase trip in 2019. Both the trip and the showcase were very well organized. The players got to experience tough, hard, good and fun trainings with American coaches. During the showcase tournament, the team met other high level teams and got to show themselves and their game to many active scouts. The visit to the college and the scout meetings were very professionally arranged. The team spirit and good behavior throughout the whole journey was as important as the performance on the ice. A really good trip to get to experience the life as a hockey player in North America. We will definitely go on another showcase trip with Future Star Academy.
