WHAT IS GLOBAL HOCKEY SERIES?

The Global Hockey Series has been designed to give our youth players an elite arena of competitive play for teams worldwide, making it a prime destination for those seeking hockey showcase tournaments. GHS is open to all teams starting at the mite level through midget and we offer divisions at the A, AA, Tier 2 AAA, and AAA levels, catering to a wide range of talents from top college hockey recruits 2024 to participants in youth hockey tournaments and high school hockey tournament 2024.

We aspire to make a positive impact with youth players/goalies, teams, and parents. Our destinations allow families to treat our events as family trips, combining the competitive spirit of college and Big Ten hockey tournaments with the joy of travel. Our partners provide cost-competitive activities for all, and our event itself provides an experience you’ve yet to see, rivalling the excitement of hockey tournaments near me and hockey tournaments this weekend. Our presenters and speakers take the time to educate players/goalies on development points outside the ice rink (mental toughness, physical therapy, personal care, training regime, and sports physiology), offering insights as valuable as those found in hockey combines and North American showcases. We are truly honoured and thrilled to have you a part of the Global Hockey Series. From the experience to the destination, we have you covered, ensuring a memorable journey akin to participating in ice hockey showcases and college showcases.

Global Hockey Series allows all teams to participate in our events year-round, eliminating the sanctioning organizations and allowing teams from all organizations to participate against new teams, fostering a spirit of inclusivity seen in USA hockey tournaments and independent classic hockey tournaments. We provide private insurance through our carrier that ensures our coverage meets and exceeds in some areas, compared to others, ensuring peace of mind for participants in adult hockey tournaments. There are no politics involved, no favouritism or flawed competition with GHS, making it a beacon of fair play and sportsmanship in the world of hockey showcases and college hockey near you.

Experience Your Destination with GHS” – a motto that gains our commitment to providing a unique and enriching experience for all participants, mirroring the excitement and learning opportunities of the show hockey and best hockey exposure camps, ensuring that every moment spent with GHS is not just about competition, but about growth, discovery, and the joy of hockey.

Everyone is welcome, USA hockey teams, AAU teams, EU Teams, Hockey Canada, and independent teams. We have the flexibility allow all teams through our insurance carrier. All tournaments are sanctioned through a sanctioning organization (i.e. USA Hockey) however that is strictly for the purpose of insurance. Our insurance covers all and meets, and exceeds in some areas, that of other sanctioning bodies. Teams have positively communicated their excitement for this by eliminating the barriers to allow different teams to play, especially during fall seasons.

Not all events are stay to play, but most are. There are some expectations to this rule. If your team is traveling to the event and live within a 50-mile radius you are exempt of the hotel restrictions.
