USPHL reigns as NCAA Division 2/3 placement leader among U.S. junior leagues

The United States Premier Hockey League (“USPHL”) remains the clear path to the NCAA Division 2 and 3 ranks. 

The tuition-free National Collegiate Development Conference (“NCDC”) had 68 Division 2/3 commitments from last year’s rosters. Combined with the nation-leading USPHL Premier Division, boasting over 160 total Division 2/3 commitments, no other North American multi-tiered junior league had as many commitments to that level of college hockey. 

Alongside these commitments, the USPHL Premier Division also features a pathway to the pioneering NCDC, the Northeastern U.S. tuition-free junior league.  The NCDC includes several teams that lead all junior teams operating within its Eastern U.S. footprint in direct commitments to the NCAA Division 1 level. The NCDC sent 49 players to NCAA Division 1 from its 2017-18 teams. 

Whether it is direct NCAA Division 2/3 advancement you’re looking for, or the opportunity to play in-season tuition-free junior hockey alongside players already committed to NCAA Division 1 schools, there is no better route - from Wisconsin to Florida to New England - than the USPHL.
