TPH CENTER OF EXCELLENCE NASHVILLE - PARENT OF MAGGIE, 5TH GRADE FIGURE SKATER

"Year two at Total Package Hockey I honestly didn’t think anything could make it better for him…BUT…his best friend attending school with him and getting to show him all the things he told him about last year made it just that much more exciting! He loved going to school last year…this year is gonna be even better!!"

STEPHANE WILLIAMS

TPH CENTER OF EXCELLENCE ST. LOUIS - PARENT

“If your child is a self starter motivated by hockey, you can't beat TPH. If you want your child to learn about life through the sport of hockey, you can't beat TPH. Without a doubt, there is no other place in the state that could possibly provide the environment and be of that inherent needed dynamic for my son."

Bill Mellenthin

TPH CENTER OF EXCELLENCE Denver - PARENT

“What I love about TPH is their leadership and mentorship of their program.  The academics are great, they are all NCAA certified classes that they are taking. But the leadership is par none. It is raising these boys and girls to be leaders out in the community and wherever they end up”

Christine Baugh

TPH CENTER OF EXCELLENCE Denver - PARENT

“As early as the first showcase, I noticed a change in the way he skated. He seemed to be more in command of the ice and moved in a way I hadn't seen before."

BUILDING THE TPH

ATHLETE

The TPH Center of Excellence training program is designed for aspiring elite student-athletes who are willing to invest their time and effort into personal growth. At TPH we recognize that individual skill focus often gets neglected due to busy competition schedules, lack of facility accessibility after academic hours, and team-centric coaching.

 

TPH is focused on long-term student-athlete development by providing platforms that allow each individual to discover new levels of potential. Learn more about how our student-athletes in Fort Lauderdale train for their sports by selecting your sport below.

Frequently Asked Questions

The TPH Center of Excellence is NOT a team. We are an academy 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 TPH Center of Excellence, each student-athlete learns from certified Teachers through our customizable virtual platform, Edmentum, with 24/7 access to virtual Tutors. Our on-site Director of Academics and Success Coach(es) are additional resources as they cultivate an environment conducive to learning. These multiple layers of support ensure that your student-athlete receives a personalized academic plan; preparing them for the game of life.

Our student-athletes train four days a week in the gym on-site with our coaches. 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 facility, to offer healthy and delicious options at an affordable price.

This is one of the primary benefits of the TPH Center of Excellence. The traditional system 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 your 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 as 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.
