T1ER

T1ER 2022-23 Season

T1ER League

The NAPHL's T1ER League is comprised of teams that compete in a full NAPHL season at highest level for USA Hockey, which includes strategically located and scheduled showcases during the 2022-23 season. Historically, the majority of NAPHL players recruited by NAHL teams come from the T1ER League, which includes 60+ NAPHL tenders per season.

The successful advancement of T1ER players is due to the internal mechanisms the NAHL has created exclusively for the members of the NAPHL. In addition, the T1ER League participates in events that are in conjunction with the NAHL Showcase and the NAHL Top Prospects Tournament, which each draw hundreds of scouts annually.
