NAPHL accepting SHOW applications for 2023-24 season

May 5, 2023

The North American Prospects Hockey League (NAPHL) has announced that membership applications are now being accepted for participation in the NAPHL SHOW League during the upcoming 2023-24 season.

Founded in 2009 and heading into its 15th season in 2023-24, the NAPHL is the premier training ground for development, exposure, and opportunity. The success of teams on the national stage, as well as the success of NAPHL players at the next levels of hockey, is further proof that the NAPHL is redefining exposure and has become the marquee place to play for elite level players, ages 13-18.


The NAPHL's SHOW League is for Tier I and Tier II teams from all over North America looking to gain exposure for their players at showcase events. The goal is to create the best opportunity to showcase and advance players, which has increased the movement of players up the ladder of development from the NAPHL to the NA3HL and NAHL.  The SHOW League includes an exclusive tendering system and uses NAHL Central Scouting to help promote players for the NAHL and NA3HL Drafts. The SHOW League also competes in cooperation with the NA3HL Showcase, which is annually one of the most well-attended and scouted events of the entire season for the league, attracting hundreds of college and junior scouts alike.

For the 2023-24 season, SHOW teams will compete in a combination of three league-wide exposure events for 18U, 16U, and 14U SHOW teams. The league-wide showcases will continue to bring everyone together in order to make it easier for the junior and college scouts to attend and evaluate.
