The NAPHL's T1ER League is comprised of teams at the 18U, 16U, 15U, and 14U age groups 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. Additionally, two Showcases for 13U, 12U and 11U teams were created to help educate the players and parents about the T1ER landscape and to provide them a great hockey experience.
The SHOW is a collection of Tier I and Tier II organizations from all over North America that compete at the Tier I level at NAPHL events. It also includes teams from some of the strongest Tier II leagues in the United States like the Central States Developmental Hockey League (CSDHL). For organizational and scheduling purposes, the 18U and 16U age groups will be split into two conferences but the 14U will play in the same Conference during the 2022-23 season.
The NAPHL is operated by the experienced and professional NAHL staff. The League has an updated and informational website dedicated to promoting the NAPHL, players, and teams. The NAPHL also features real-time scoring through NAHL technology partner LeagueStat, live broadcasting and play-by-play on NAHLTV of all games, players evaluated by NAHL Central Scouting to help promote the players to the NAHL, and all games are played under USA Hockey rules and standards at the Tier I level.
