Founded in 2012, the United States Premier Hockey League (USPHL) of 2020-21 is comprised of more than 550 teams, fielding more than 11,000 players in more than 100 organizations, with player ages ranging from 6 to 21. Our teams are geographically diverse, ranging from North and South to the Midwest and West Coast.
The USPHL fields teams in a variety of divisions from Junior to the all-youth Eastern Junior Elite Prospects League.
Our Junior Divisions consist of the National Collegiate Development Conference (NCDC) - a unique, tuition-free, Junior hockey division geared toward Division I collegiate development placement and beyond - and our Premier and Elite Divisions.
Our High Performance Youth League includes teams operating at the Squirt Minor through Bantam Major Divisions. The 2020-21 season will see these teams merged into the Eastern Junior Elite Prospects League.
The ultimate goal of the USPHL is to prepare and develop players for college hockey (and beyond) through a tiered development program.
Unlike any other league in North America, within the USPHL it is possible for a player to advance through an organization starting at mites and ending in junior hockey.
The United States Premier Hockey League (USPHL), which operates in 24 of the 50 United States, is the Nation’s largest amateur ice hockey league. The league is comprised of more than 600 teams. Players in the USPHL are 6 to 21 years of age. Overall, the USPHL has had over 2,500 players advance to the collegiate level; and even more have advanced to other levels of the game.
