Bloomfield Hills, MI – Total Package Hockey is pleased to announce our Michigan Hockey Advancement (MHA) program has been accepted in the North American Prospects Hockey League’s Fall League.

The MHA program provides a playing opportunity for dedicated, driven high-school level hockey players to prepare for their club seasons and gain exposure to coaches and scouts at the junior, collegiate and professional levels, while competing in a structured, team environment.

The MHA program has grown since its inception and now fields teams at the 18U, 16U, and 15O levels. Running from early September through October, each team plays between 20-25 games. The MHA 18U and 16U teams will be one of the eight teams in their respective age groups joining the NAPHL Fall League.

“From day 1, the MHA was and always will be focused on exposure.” said Rick Gadwa, MHA Program Director. “Acceptance into the NAPHL Fall League is another step taken to improve our players exposure level, educate them on the process of junior and college hockey, and truly give them a great opportunity”.

This newly created NAPHL Fall League is designed to give teams the ability to play in a league within a shortened window of time before the Minnesota, Michigan, and Wisconsin high school seasons begin. The NAPHL Fall League events are designed to maximize exposure for the players and bring together teams for like-minded and enhanced competition. Each NAPHL fall league team will receive two tenders from NAHL teams. Players will also participate in seminars that discuss the NAHL junior hockey experience, the ladder of development, as well as, NCAA compliance seminars.

The schedule for the MHA teams will start June 30th with tryouts. Following tryouts will be the invite only MHA Exposure Showcase on August 21st – 23rd where final selections will be made for each MHA team leading into training camp. The MHA Fall Series is highlighted by three NAPHL Fall League Showcase Weekends which include one weekend in Duluth, MN and two weekends in Blaine, MN where the latter is the NAPHL Playoffs Championships. Additionally, the MHA teams will compete in the MHA Showcase in Grand Rapids, MI.

INDIANAPOLIS, IN – The 2020 TPH Indianapolis Girls Camp is right around the corner and we are excited to bring an all-star guest coaching team.

 

Returning will be, 2018 Olympic Gold Medalist for the US Women’s National Team, Nicole Hensley. Hensley played her college hockey at Lindenwood University prior to her success representing the United States at two World Championships where Hensley and USA claimed gold. Presently Hensley is a member of the Professional Women’s Hockey Players’ Association. Nicole will be invaluable to our goaltenders at the camp, as well as a resource for the girls to know what it takes to play at the highest level.

 

This will mark the first year for the other guest coaches coming to the TPH Indy Girls Camp:

Gracen Hirschy, a native of Ft. Wayne, was a member of the US Women’s National Under-18 team as well as a two-time member of the U.S. Women’s Under -22 Select team.  She most recently played for MODO Hockey in the SDHL and played NCAA (W) at the University of North Dakota.

 

Allie LaCombe, a Minnesota native, is coming off a season where she wore multiple hats. LaCombe was the head coach of the Nashville Jr Predators Girls 14U team, assistant coach to the Nashville Jr Predators Girls 19U team, and finished the season competing in the National Women’s Hockey League with the Connecticut Whale. LaCombe’s experience in the game includes time spent playing college hockey at Syracuse University as well as playing overseas for Aisulu Altmaty in the European Women’s Hockey League.

 

Kahlie Singletary brings over 14 years of Tier I and Tier II Girls hockey. Last season, Singletary was the head coach of the Nashville Jr Predators Girls 19U team and assistant coach to the Nashville Jr Predators Girls 14U team.

 

We are excited to bring such an experienced and dedicated coaching staff to this clinic!

 

The 2020 TPH Indy Girls Camp starts July 31st and will run through August 2nd. The camp is open to girls of all skill levels and will have two age groups: 11U for ’13-’08 birth years and 17U for ’07-’02 birth years. Players will receive TPH’s proven training of relevant skills and drills to improve their skating, shooting, and passing, as well as apply these skills and make decisions under pressure.

 

The girls will be on the ice for at least 5 hours of skill work and will end the clinic with a scrimmage. The camp will also include off-ice workouts, video sessions, team building session, and an informational session.

 

Be sure to reserve your spot today before the camp fills up! Click here to register.


Total Package Hockey is pleased to announce that Shane Harvey, Director of Sports Performance for the new Ice Den Performance Center will also take on the role of Strength and Conditioning Coach for the TPH-Phoenix Center of Excellence.  Harvey brings twelve years of coaching and off-ice training experience to the student-athletes that attend the TPH-Phoenix CoE.

“Shane Harvey’s reputation, commitment to training athletes safely and effectively and the values he has about development make him a perfect fit to execute the training component of the Study, Train, Play CoE experience,” TPH-Phoenix Director of Hockey-Operations Brett Blatchford said.  “His beliefs are rooted in principles that have withstood the test of time, yet he is also progressive and innovative and understands that not all athletes train the same.  Shane’s commitment to individualizing and customizing the weight room experience for each student-athlete based on age, size and athletic base will allow us to make the greatest possible impact on the Hockey-Athlete’s who attend the CoE.”

Harvey, a Red Deer, Alberta native, is no stranger to training hockey players in the Phoenix area.  Since 2017, Shane has served as the Director of Sports Performance at the Center for Athletic Training & Physical Therapy located at the Ice Den in Chandler.  During this time, Shane has not just trained but also coached various Tier I and Tier II players from the Jr. Coyotes and Arizona Bobcats organizations.

Prior to his arrival in The Desert, the University of Southern Maine graduate has served as a head instructor for Okanagan Hockey Schools, a performance coach at the OA Sports Center in Saco, ME, the Director of Player Development for the Portland Jr. Pirates and during the 2014-2015 season, Shane served as the Assistant Strength and Conditioning Coach for the Pirates American Hockey League team.  The 32-year-old holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Exercise Science, as well as certifications from the NSCA, TRX Functional Training, EXOS and USA Hockey.

“I am very excited to expand my role with the Jr. Coyotes while also having the opportunity to work together with TPH and their knowledgeable, passionate staff,” Harvey said.  “Our Performance Center will be state-of-the-art, built for hockey development and will put the needs of our athletes first.  I believe this will be a very successful partnership that will impact the athletes that train with both TPH and the Ice Den.”

The Center of Excellence model is open to Tier I ‘AAA’ and Tier II ‘AA’ 6-12th grade hockey players from across all organizations in the Phoenix area.  Blatchford believes Harvey’s involvement will appeal to the masses.

“Having Shane serve as our Strength and Conditioning Coach offers both continuity and freshness,” Blatchford explained.  “For CAHA players that attend the CoE but already train with Shane, working with him allows for greater customization and consistency.  For the student-athletes who attend the CoE that don’t play for CAHA teams, working with Shane will provide fresh perspective on how to improve strength, speed, athleticism and endurance, which are the pillars of being a successful TPH Hockey-Athlete.  Simply put, having Shane Harvey involved in the CoE is a win for both TPH and hockey in Phoenix.”

Total Package Hockey is pleased to announce the launch of its twelfth Center of Excellence at the Hertz Arena in Estero, FL. With support from Southwest Florida hockey staple Ryan Brindley, TPH will open its first CoE in the Sunshine State.

“We are thrilled to bring our Center of Excellence model to a state, and community for that matter, that is developing and advancing high-level hockey players at a great clip,” TPH CEO Nathan Bowen said. “In addition, by partnering with Ryan Brindley, we are teaming up with an individual who has passion for developing student-athletes on and off the ice, knowledge of what the development process looks like, having sons who are going through it right now, as well as a desire to see the state of Florida grow hockey talent from within. The CoE model will allow ‘AA’ and ‘AAA’ players from Southwest Florida to receive high level on and off-ice training, a fully individualized, customized, NCAA-accredited academic experience within the blended learning environment we foster at the CoE, all while staying at or close to home, continuing to compete for their local teams and enjoying the high quality of life Southwest Florida has to offer. We hope this announcement today will be viewed as a win by aspiring elite hockey players in Southwest Florida, because calling Estero, FL the home to our 12th Center of Excellence is definitely a win for TPH.”

In partnering with Ryan Brindley, who will also serve as Director of Hockey-Operations for the Center of Excellence, TPH is aligned with a figure who has been instrumental in the growth of hockey not just in Estero, but across the state. A former captain of the Florida Everblades ECHL team, Brindley played nine professional seasons in four leagues (IHL, AHL, ECHL, and WPHL), before retiring at the conclusion of the 2006-2007 season. A graduate of Miami University, Brindley donned the red and white for four seasons with the Redhawks, graduating with a B.S. in Physical Education in 1999.

While Brindley’s resume is deep with hockey playing experience, perhaps what is more impressive has been his dedication to the growth of hockey in Southwest Florida. From 2009-2016, Brindley coached for the Florida Jr. Everblades organization, capturing multiple state and league championships. His 2004 birth year Florida Alliance and Southeast Elite Hockey teams (a program Brindley founded), have been ranked in the top five US teams the past six years. Ryan had two of his players named to the USA Youth Olympic team that won a Silver Medal in Switzerland this past January. He also recently had one player sign with the USNTDP, another tender in the USHL and multiple players heard their names called in the 2020 USHL and OHL drafts.

Brindley believes the Center of Excellence will provide a “missing piece” for the right 6-12th grade Florida hockey players, and as Bowen referenced, “incentivize” players to stay close to home until the time is right to advance in the game.

“The CoE really is a one-stop-shop for a hockey player that wants to maximize his or her development on the ice, in the weight room and most importantly, in the classroom,” Brindley said. “TPH’s commitment to providing an educational experience that readies kids for any university setting is what I believe families in Southwest Florida will most appreciate. Flexibility is something young hockey players in our state need and the CoE model offers just that, all while placing demands on the kids that ready them for their futures,whether that’s in hockey, school or life.”

In referencing the educational experience provided at the Center of Excellence, Brindley is pointing to TPH’s unique academic learning platform provided by Edmentum. The TPH-Edmentum platform is designed to meet the demands of the aspiring elite male and female hockey player who desires structure, discipline and accountability, but as Brindley pointed out, requires the flexibility to pursue his or her hockey and career goals without the fear of missing school. The “blended learning environment” shaped by TPH includes academics on demand, with 24/7, fully accessible NCAA courseware and full-time instructors who are dedicated to the student-athletes across all twelve Centers of Excellence. Courses are available live as well as on-demand, with accessible instructors who hold virtual office hours. CoE attendees also have access to a virtual tutoring service, in the event academic assistance is needed after-hours or right on the spot during the CoE school day.

“Prospective TPH-Florida families might be interested to know that throughout this current COVID-19 crisis, our student-athletes across all Centers of Excellence haven’t missed a beat academically,” Bowen added. “Our academic outcomes continue to be extremely positive. Seniors have graduated and our student-athletes stayed on pace or ahead with their schoolwork. And while we hope to see a full return to normalcy once the school year rolls around, we have prepared both a hybrid and completely virtual CoE option so that regardless of the state of the pandemic,our student-athletes will have every opportunity to Study, Train and Play‘on demand.’ This is something Ryan Brindley and all of us in TPH believe Florida families are really going to love.”

Another feature that Bowen and Brindley believe will be an attraction to prospective TPH-Florida families is that its Estero Center of Excellence will be setup like a mini-college campus, with on-ice training sessions taking place four days per week. Student-athletes will be shuttled to a state-of-the-art classroom facility located near Corkscrew Palms Boulevard, adjacent to Estero Community Park, which is located three miles from Hertz Arena. Off-ice training and recreational activities will be held at the Estero Community Center & Park.

“It was evident to us from the very first day we connected with Ryan and looked into having a CoE in Southwest Florida that hockey families along the Gulf Coast crave experiences that are first-class,” Bowen added. “The partnerships Ryan has made and the relationships he has built, whether it be with the ECHL Everblades, our off-ice training provider, the classroom space we have secured, or the support staff Ryan will hire and put in place, are designed to give our student-athletes every chance to Study, Train and Play to their fullest potential.”

Prospective TPH-Florida Center of Excellence attendees are invited to join Brindley and other members of the TPH team for its first open house, being held virtually via Zoom, on Thursday, July 2 at 7:00 PM EST. A link to RSVP is down below. Only families who RSVP will be able to attend.

In addition, with demand for TPH’s Study, Train, Play model expected to be at a high, families of aspiring elite Tier I ‘AAA’ and Tier II ‘AA’ caliber 6-12th grade hockey players who are interested in the CoE model are encouraged to apply to the Center of Excellence at the link below. Applying to the CoE is the first formal step in the registration process and reserves a spot at the center for the upcoming school year.


TPH Colorado is pleased to announce Denver Human Performance (DHP) as the official strength and conditioning partners at its Denver location.  Chase Engdahl is the Director of Human Performance for DHP and brings a wealth of high-level knowledge and experience to the athletes of TPH Colorado.  Engdahl’s educational background is extensive, earning his undergraduate degree in Kinesiology and then a master’s degree in Applied Exercise Science.  A Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist through the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA), Chase parlayed his education to becoming an assistant NHL strength coach, working with some of the top athletes in the world.  Chase now leads Denver Human Performance and TPH athletes with his knowledge and experience to help provide them with the tools they can use to springboard them to their individual next level.

 

Andy Howard will serve as the Head Strength and Conditioning coach for DHP.  Howard completed his undergrad in Exercise Science and is in the process of completing his master’s degree in Exercise Physiology.  Andy is also a registered Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist through the NSCA and has interned under former NHLer Brent Severyn at Severyn Sports in Dallas, Texas as well as the National Strength and Conditioning Association. Most recently Andy served as the Assistant Strength Coach for the Colorado Rampage last season.

“We could not be more excited to have Denver Human Performance join our team for this upcoming year,” says TPH Colorado Director Jordan Pietrus.  “Chase and Andy have great backgrounds, and fantastic experience in developing not only hockey players but all athletes.  Their passion for developing more complete athletes and people align with our core values at TPH and we are absolutely thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Denver Human Performance next year.”

 

In addition to Chase and Andy’s impressive resumes DHP will have the support of one of the most impressive advisory boards in the country, including but not limited to professionals currently working in in the NHL, NFL, MLB, and NCAA. Click here to see the DHP advisory board.

 

The advisory board will provide the Denver Human Performance staff, TPH and their athletes with the most up to date science, training methods and data in the strength and conditioning industry.

 

Engdahl added “I speak for both Andy and I when I say that we could not be more excited to partner with an organization such as TPH that shares the same vision and passion for helping youth athletes achieve their goals here in Denver. We believe that through collaborative efforts with the TPH staff, we can help take TPH’s already proven development model to the next level by providing an unparalleled training experience.”

 

“At TPH we are constantly striving to provide our athletes every opportunity to develop to their fullest potential,” Pietrus adds.  “To have access to industry leaders in not only Strength and Conditioning, but areas such as Nutrition, Exercise Science, and Kinesiology is a big deal for our coaches and most importantly our athletes.”

Total Package Hockey is pleased to announce that Derek Robinson and Angelo Ricci have come together in partnership with TPH to operate not only its current Denver location, but to also bring a second Center of Excellence to the state of Colorado at the Sport Stable in Superior. Robinson, the Executive Sports Director of RoughRiders Sports Club, and Ricci, Executive Director of the Colorado Thunderbirds, are combining forces with the long-term vision of strengthening hockey in the Rocky Mountain region. The two individuals and entities will partner with TPH in both the Denver and Superior locations. This unique partnership will allow these two leaders in Colorado youth hockey to work together in the Study, Train, Play academy style model to further develop aspiring elite 6-12th grade student-athletes from all over the Rocky Mountain region.

“On behalf of TPH we could not be happier to enter into this partnership, and that’s truly what this is – a partnership,” TPH CEO Nathan Bowen said. “What has been built in Superior is truly remarkable. The vision, facility and team members we have met are all first class in every sense of the word. The RoughRiders have a brand that is synonymous with quality and a culture that aligns with TPH. We look forward to this partnership in our efforts to strengthen the development of not just hockey players, but all student-athletes in the Rocky Mountain region.”

The Sport Stable is a truly one-of-a-kind facility and has quickly become a one-stop-shop for all athletes, regardless of their chosen sport, to get the tools needed to develop their game. The facility features two and a half ice sheets, three basketball courts, two turf fields, golf simulators, batting cages, a restaurant, coffee shop, barber shop as well as a variety of health, wellness and performance avenues for its student-athletes, including strength and conditioning, physical therapy and performance psychology consultation. In time, TPH hopes to expand the reach of its Center of Excellence model to the various sports programs housed inside the Sport Stable.

While the Sport Stable offers a plethora of opportunities for all student-athletes, the one piece its leadership has been looking to add is a proven academy-style training, learning and life-development model. Enter TPH and the Center of Excellence.

“We are so excited to launch the academy model at the Sport Stable,” Executive Sports Director Derek Robinson said. “It will provide our players with the best available training and a high-end education that will ultimately provide a better lifestyle for our families. We also know what Angelo Ricci has done for players in the state, and together, we will provide a path from 8U to 18U for Colorado players to stay home and get world-class training until they are ready for junior or collegiate hockey. Now with TPH and their national network and reputation for developing and advancing players, we have everything we need right here in the state for each individual to succeed.”

Just over one year ago TPH brought the Center of Excellence to the South side of Denver, and Angelo Ricci echoes Robinson’s excitement.

“For the past 12 years, Derek and his team have built a program from the ground up and I have a deep respect for what he and his team have done,” said Ricci, who is also the Executive Director of the Colorado Thunderbirds organization. “For the last decade plus, Derek and I have competed against each other, but we have also worked together. I am excited for this new venture and opportunity to work as one, in the best interest of all the student-athletes who want to take advantage of the academy model.”

In his earlier comments about the “high-end” education student-athletes will receive, Derek Robinson is referencing TPH’s best-of-both-world’s academics scenario. Student-athletes complete their NCAA-accredited coursework online, interact with their instructors virtually and have the option to take school home or on the road with them every day, with no fear of days missed due to the demands of being an aspiring elite athlete. At the same time, when student-athletes are on-site, they study under the direction of an academic leader who is focused on fostering a positive culture, maintaining accountability and putting a learning plan in place for each individual based on where, when and how he or she works best. This layered academic approach ensures that when it’s time for TPH student-athletes to focus on their sport, whether its training at the CoE, practicing with their club teams or jumping on a plane to travel to games, they are on-pace or ahead in their courses.

Current TPH-Denver Director of Hockey-Operations Jordan Pietrus oversees its Center of Excellence at Family Sports Center in nearby Centennial. TPH’s Denver-based CoE maximized capacity in year one and expects continued growth for the 2020-2021 school year. Ironically, Pietrus played two seasons of junior ‘A’ hockey with the Cedar Rapids RoughRiders of the USHL, where he was part of a Clark Cup Championship squad in 2005. He will support the setup and growth of TPH’s second CoE in the Rocky Mountain state.

“This partnership between these two long-standing leaders and their programs is a big step for the future and culture of Colorado hockey,” Pietrus said. “They both want to see student-athletes stay in state until they are ready to play and contribute at the junior hockey level. The CoE model offers a degree of flexibility that high-level athletes require if they are to pursue their sport, academic and future career goals. At the same time, there is a level of structure and detail on both the academic and sport side of the model that all kids need. There’s a daily schedule, classroom guidelines, clear expectations and ample opportunities for our staff to mentor our student-athletes on what it means to aspire to be elite and most importantly, how to get there. We also have data that shows just how beneficial our blended learning environment is when it comes to academics, rest, recovery and long-term athlete development. This model is proven and backed by results.”

2019-20 TPH Colorado Academic Data.

The academic data Pietrus is referring to is highlighted in the graphic boxes in this release. The CoE model has grown to twelve locations and has been in existence since 2014. In that time, student-athletes across the country have been able to study and excel through TPH’s on-demand, blended academic learning model. And as Nathan Bowen points out, even during some of the challenges and uncertainties faced in our world today, TPH student-athletes continue to perform.

“Prospective Sport Stable CoE families might be interested to know that throughout this current COVID-19 crisis, our student-athletes across all Centers of Excellence haven’t missed a beat academically,” Bowen added. “Our academic outcomes continue to be extremely positive. Seniors are graduating and our student-athletes are staying on pace with their schoolwork. While routines have certainly changed for our student-athletes over the past several weeks, they have not had to transition from a learning standpoint which is one of the benefits of the academic model we implement in the CoE.”

Obviously, everyone’s hope is that once the CoE school year arrives in late August, we see what Bowen calls a “full return to normalcy.” In the event CoE’s are unable to operate like they did prior to the arrival of COVID-19, TPH has a plan in place to maintain the Study, Train, Play experience for all of its student-athletes.

“Families should rest assured that we will be prepared to mentor our Center of Excellence attendees in a safe, healthy and successful manner,” Bowen said. “We are currently crafting three potential options for the 2020-2021 school year that include hybrid, small group on and off-ice training sessions, revisions to our classroom layouts, increased policies with regards to sanitization, and if necessary, a virtual platform for us to train our student-athletes on in a manner similar to the TPH Virtual Hockey Development platform we have been using to service our student-athletes on for the past two months. The CoE really provides an ‘on demand’ experience, first and foremost on the academics side, something Derek wants for all Sport Stable CoE attendees.”

 

With the success of TPH’s Denver-based CoE and the announcement of its second Study, Train, Play model in the state of Colorado, TPH is looking forward to providing that “missing piece” for the Sport Stable in hopes that it will incentivize its Colorado-based athletes to stay home, enjoy the holistic experience of the CoE and maintain a quality of life that Bowen calls “second to none.”

“While every family’s situation is different, there really is no reason for an athlete to leave the state of Colorado to pursue his or her goals,” Bowen said. “On the hockey side alone, for TPH, Angelo Ricci and Derek Robinson to be joined together, we will do everything in our collective power to accelerate the development and advancement of the hockey players we support and make Colorado the premier destination for hockey players and athletes from other sports who have a desire to Study, Train and Play to their fullest potential.”
