In order for a Player to participate in the Core Development Program, he may contact his NHLPA team DPR’s or contact the NHL.
Once a player has contacted the program he will speak with the primary CDP managers. After an initial phone consultation, players will be asked to participate in a short initial introductory interview and assessment process. The information collected by the CDP manager will be used to create a customized Player Action Plan. The Player Action Plan will be executed using the CDP’s assessment methodology and resources specific to meet the needs of the Player.
Player participation is based on their own schedules, needs and objectives. There are no mandatory time commitments for a player to participate in the CDP.
