Leading The Next Generation

The TPH-Florida Alliance Partnership

In March of 2022, TPH and the Florida Alliance joined forces to take TPH’s core purpose, which is to lead the world in the holistic development of student-athletes, advancing- in and beyond the game- the next generation of impact players, and apply it in a team setting, one that welcomes in Alliance 2004-2007 birth years.

This unique player and team-focused partnership was formed to provide an avenue for hockey players from across the state of Florida to:

  • graduation


    Receive a quality, NCAA-accredited education, within TPH’s blended learning environment

  • hockey-equipment


    Get on and off-ice hockey training that extends far beyond what is offered in a traditional club setting

  • helmet (2)


    Learn about the process of becoming an elite hockey player, athlete, student, person and TEAM

Eliminating the 'Choice'

Quality Local hockey development

While hockey is a sport that promotes character, hard work and team play, far too often, aspiring elite players feel rushed, and struggle to find playing situations where they can:

  • (1) pursue their academic and athletic goals at once,
  • (2) do so in an environment that offers them everything they need and so much of what they want in order to be successful, and
  • (3) remain at or close to home in the process.

The TPH-Florida Alliance partnership checks all the boxes, providing hockey players from across the state of Florida a high-level junior and college hockey experience, while allowing them to enjoy all the lifestyle benefits the Sunshine State has to offer.  Thanks to this partnership, Tier I hockey players from the state of Florida no longer need to stray outside their backyard for an opportunity to develop holistically, on and off the ice.
