Toledo Cherokee announce 2012-13 Final Tryout Camp

The Toledo Cherokee Junior Hockey Club, member of the North American 3 Hockey League (NA3HL) will host their 2012-2013 Final Tryout Camp August 10th – 12th, 2012 in Toledo, Ohio at the Team Toledo Ice House.

The primary mission of the 3HL, which is managed organizationally by the North American Hockey League (NAHL), is to provide a structured developmental environment for student-athletes whose youth options are limited but are still reaching their potential and have aspirations of playing in the NAHL or United States Hockey League (USHL) and eventually the NCAA or American College Hockey Association (ACHA).

Through the NAHL's vast resources for development and exposure, the creation of the 3HL provides another worthy path for players to grow, on and off the ice, while being showcased in front of the entire junior, college and professional scouting community. It also allows the NAHL and 3HL to work with USA Hockey's youth affiliates regarding junior-youth conflicts of same-age players.

In addition to its regular-season schedule and playoffs, the 3HL, which boasts a tight geographical footprint with 17 teams in seven states (Illinois, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio and Pennsylvania) allowing players to compete and excel academically at home, will participate in the NAHL's high-exposure events, which attract hundreds of college, junior and professional coaches and scouts.
