  • Culture + Cosmetics = Impact

    It is often said that culture beats cosmetics any day of the week, and this is true… but when student-athletes have culture and cosmetics, that’s when they have the greatest possible opportunity to experience growth and satisfaction at once.  

    While TPH believes it will provide the Study-Train-Play “culture” that promotes individual and team success, its partnership with the Panthers IceDen will offer Alliance players the “cosmetics” piece.  As part of a renovation to the Panthers IceDen, Alliance players who enroll in the TPH Center of Excellence will enjoy NHL-level amenities, including:

    • Pro-style dressing room
    • State-of-the-art weight room
    • Dry changing area
    • Video theater
    • Equipment room

    2,000+ square foot customized academic space, consistent with The TPH Way
