On Monday, July 17, the National Collegiate Development Conference (NCDC) announced its new website domain, www.NCDCHockey.com, as well as a new NCDC Mobile App for all Apple and Android devices and exclusive NCDC Social Media Channels for Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
The NCDC is a Tier II Junior Hockey Conference operating in 11 states across the United States, including its newest division, the Mountain Division, making its debut in 2023-24 with six teams in Utah, Idaho, Colorado and Wyoming. These teams will join the existing teams operating in the Northeast, many since the NCDC’s inception in 2017.
While still operating within the nationwide United States Premier Hockey League (USPHL), the NCDC is moving towards more independent, team-directed operations and thus is featuring these new NCDC-dedicated digital platforms that will better deliver its message, of player development and advancement to the highest levels of college and pro hockey, to the world.
Since its inaugural 2017-18 season, the NCDC has advanced 265 players to NCAA Division I hockey, and has also seen 14 players selected in the NHL Entry Draft, including three selected directly from the NCDC in 2021, a Tier II North American best for that year.
Below is a breakdown of the new digital products for the National Collegiate Development Conference going forward:
The new domain, NCDCHockey.com, reflects the NCDC’s team-and mission-driven approach to operations, wherein the 18 teams across the country will be working around the clock and the calendar to develop players for the highest levels of college and pro hockey, with an elevated emphasis on promotion of these players to college and pro teams as well as the world at large on its vibrant website, which was fully redesigned by the experts at Tripine Creative in 2022.
On NCDCHockey.com, visitors will find league-and team-generated news items, Video and Podcast offerings by The Dan K Show (The Most Watched Show In Junior Hockey), a directory of all 18 teams with links to each team’s website, links to the NCDC’s new Social Media Channels, an NCDC Player Prospect Form (free to fill out for all players born in 2003 or later), College Commitments, NCDC alumni (and NCDC organizational alumni) in the NHL, NCDC Entry Draft Picks, Players Of the Week And Month, and so much more, including the FloSports-generated Game Center.
The NCDC GameCenter will continue to be the headquarters for all of your NCDC Schedules, Live Scores, Rosters and Statistics when the puck drops on the seventh NCDC season on Sept. 22, 2023 both on the East Coast and in the Rocky Mountains. Additionally, there will be links to watch every NCDC game, all with play-by-play broadcasts, on the NCDC’s Exclusive Broadcast Partner, HockeyTV.com, including preseason exhibition games and every in-season Showcase Series event!
