A Message From The Director

Welcome To Denver !

"It's our mission to impact student athletes using a holistic approach that emphasizes the development of the individual in three ways:

  1. As an athlete.
  2. As a student.
  3. Most importantly as a PERSON.

We believe it is our job to prepare each student-athlete to win in the ultimate game, and that’s the game of life."

- Jay Sprague, Director & Head of Hockey, TPH Denver

Frequently Asked Questions

The TPH Center of Excellence is NOT a team. We are a school that allows you to focus on your individual skills. Additionally, you can still play for your current team. This makes for an awesome training environment where our student-athletes get to build a community with like-minded student-athletes.

At the TPH Center of Excellence our student-athletes benefit from multiple layers of support. At the foundation is the Colorado State Certified Teachers who teach virtually through the Edmentum platform. Additionally students are surrounded by support including access to virtual tutors and our Center of Excellence has a Director of Academics and Success Coach(es) on-site every day to ensure student-athletes stay on task, help them find the resources they need, and help cultivate an environment conducive to learning.

Our student-athletes train five days a week in the gym or on the turf with our certified and highly experienced strength coaches from Denver Human Performance.

DID YOU KNOW: student-athletes can receive physical education credit for the training.

They are certainly welcome to, but we do offer a meal plan working with the restaurant, located inside the South Suburban Rec Complex, to offer healthy and delicious options at an affordable price.

This is one of the primary benefits of the TPH Center of Excellence. Traditional schooling is not conducive to the lifestyle of the aspiring elite student-athlete. We are very flexible with our attendance policy because we do understand the travel that sports require and the toll that a season can take on a student-athlete. The beauty of our platform is that we can operate virtually. Need a recovery day? Stay home, you can do you course work from home, our staff can additionally send you a home workout. The biggest factor is that we believe our student-athletes get the most out of their experience by attending on-site, but we understand that may not always be possible.

The goal of our mentorship program is to educate our student-athletes on “the process” of becoming elite. Part of that is through the mentorship program which includes Coach FA's Mentorship Program, community service, field trips, and guest speakers.

We believe the TPH Center of Excellence provides more balance than traditional school. Our student-athletes finish a day at the Center of Excellence, attend their club's practice, and then are free the rest of the day. We believe our platform gives our student-athletes more time to spend as they wish away from the Center of Excellence. Additionally we require our student-athletes to fill out daily surveys through Kinduct that help our staff understand the holistic state of our student-athletes. These surveys track sleep, nutrition, injuries, and more to assist us in ensuring we know how to balance their workload.

The TPH Center of Excellence can provide support for IEP's and 504's. We have built our centers with learning environments that help all types of learners and set up our student-athletes for success. However, students will have to complete a determination meeting with our education partner to ensure we can meet all the needs of the student.

Yes, because our students receive a CDE state certified education, there should be no issues transferring following their time at the Center of Excellence. However, each school district has its own set of rules and guidelines in accepting transferring students.

Student typically arrive at 8 a.m. and are done by 4 p.m.
