Hockey Manitoba is proud to host this pre-high performance program specifically designed for players aspiring to one day play in the Hockey Manitoba Program of Excellence (POE) and for U-16 Team Manitoba. The “PLUS+” program is an important introductory step for developing Major Peewee players heading into their first year of Bantam hockey. Our 5-week program offers a curriculum specifically designed by our high performance staff and coaches to address the significant deficiencies we annually see in our U-16 POE players. The CCM Rising Stars PLUS+ program provides eligible advanced players with the proper path to develop into a high performance athlete and to potentially wear the Team Manitoba jersey one day. No other spring development program or spring team can offer the development path that Hockey Manitoba needs our U-16 players to possess when they are 15!

MORE ABOUT THE PLUS+ PROGRAM
CCM Rising Stars PLUS+ is a pre-high performance program introduced by Hockey Manitoba to effectively develop the foundation of potential high performance athletes. CCM Rising Stars PLUS+ is established to be the most significant stepping stone into the Director’s Cup Prospects and U-16 Program of Excellence. The program boasts a specialized development curriculum with full emphasis on skills and individual tactics that we need our players to master as they head into Bantam hockey and provincial programs. Positional skills are emphasized include goaltending, as well as checking skills. The program is delivered by a mix of Hockey Manitoba POE coaches, Winnipeg AAA coaches, and professional skills coaches and Hockey Manitoba Coach Mentors. Registration includes branded CCM practice uniforms and custom CCM tournament uniforms.
CCM RISING STARS CUP
The PLUS+ program will culminate in early May with the CCM Rising Stars Cup. The CCM Rising Stars Cup will be held in conjunction with the Director’s Cup Prospects Tournament and U-16 POE TOP-40 Camp to provide these young players with an extraordinary hockey development experience. The “Cup” will include opportunities for player and parent development presentations, coaches seminars, officials development and first-hand exposure to the next levels of our provincial development programs. Players from all regions are mixed onto various rosters for the tournament, which will include 4 games along with custom branded CCM jerseys and socks.
