NAHL announces partnership with US Performance Academy

July 19, 2023

The North American Hockey League (NAHL) is pleased to announce that the US Performance Academy (USPA) has been named the Official Online Academic Partner of the NAHL, the North American 3 Hockey League (NA3HL), and North American Prospects Hockey League (NAPHL).

This collaboration establishes an academic and athletic pathway to enable hockey players to train, travel, and compete while receiving a high-quality online education.

"USPA's flexible, high-level education aligns perfectly with the needs of our elite players," said Mark Frankenfeld, Commissioner and President of the NAHL. "Our players are committed to moving on to elite colleges and universities and with USPA they can get the flexibility to advance their hockey skills while obtaining a rigorous education and broadening their opportunity to secondary school participation.”

In addition to online seminars, USPA will attend select NAHL, NA3HL, and NAPHL events to provide in-person expert guidance from staff to support hockey players on their journey to college and elite athletics.

“It’s an honor to partner with NAHL and its associated leagues,” said Pete Smith, Founder and President of USPA. “The NAHL, NA3HL, and NAPHL have all become synonymous with excellence in hockey and we could not be more excited to work with such an amazing organization. Our school provides players the kind of academic flexibility that results in a distinct advantage over the competition on the ice.”

USPA's unique online learning model empowers motivated student-athletes to train, travel, and compete at the highest levels in their chosen sport. Unlike other online schools, USPA is fully accredited, and NCAA approved. It offers flexible school schedules, academic calendars, and a comprehensive support system for students in grades 6-12. Through this partnership, young athletes can pursue their goals in sports without compromising their education.
