Thunderbirds College Prep

Thunderbirds College Prep is an independent U19 Junior Prep team operating under the College Prep label. The team is open to players born between 2005 and 2008. Affiliations are being considered with either the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) or USA Hockey, with the potential to register as a new Tier III Independent team under USA Hockey.

The Thunderbirds are currently recruiting players from across the country, leveraging connections with Mole Hockey. The team is open to possible call-ups during the season from Thunderbirds U18 AA roster.

Practice times have been secured on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays in the AM. The team will be targeting a total of 18 home games for the season. The schedule will consist of high end Midwest, Canadian and New England Prep Schools in tandem with USA Tier 3 junior teams.

Player fees will cover travel, lodging, meals during showcases, and other expenses. The team benefits from the expertise of David Dew Director of Scouting Ogden Mustangs (NCDC) and Regional Scout (Fargo Force USHL). Justin Cohn has served as an asst. coach with New Mexico Ice Wolves (NA3HL) and Head Coach with Decatur Blaze (USPHL).

Options are being explored for billeting, with current Thunderbird families as potential hosts. Educational support and NCAA eligibility are being considered, with post-grad players required to take a college preparatory class.

The season is set to start on September 1st and run through early March, with an ID Camp to be held in April and a main camp later in the summer. The team is in contact with numerous prep schools regarding showcases and tournaments.

Husna and Hameed Khan proudly serve as owners and contributors to the Thunderbirds College Prep team. Their primary focus is dedicated to assisting players in developing into not only better hockey athletes but exemplary individuals. With the establishment of KDC Sports Group, they aspire to extend this mission to various forthcoming entities, fostering growth and excellence within the realm of junior hockey.
