TPH Michigan Hockey Advancement

2019 Top 80 Showcase Tryout Info Coming Soon!

Michigan Hockey Advancement

The Michigan Hockey Advancement program, or MHA, provides a fall playing opportunity for dedicated, driven high-school level hockey players to prepare for their club seasons and gain exposure to coaches and scouts at the junior, collegiate and professional levels, while competing in a structured, team environment. 

 

This environment is made up of positive, knowledgeable, hands-on coaches who seek to foster an atmosphere that mirrors that of the next level, while creating a true sense of "team."  Each individual quickly realizes that personal success and group success go hand in hand.  

 

The MHA fields teams at both the 18U and 16U levels.  The MHA season runs from early September through early November and concludes just in time for the start of the Michigan high school hockey season.  Each team plays between 20-25 games, and attends highly-competitive, well-scouted events including:

 

 

18U

  • NAHL Blaine Showcase
  • USHL Fall Classic
  • Beantown Fall Classic
  • Motor City Cup

16U

  • NAHL Blaine Showcase
  • Honeybaked/Compuware Tournament
  • Beantown Fall Classic
  • Motor City Cup
 

 

 

The MHA Path

The path to competing on our U16 or U18 MHA teams starts in early August.  Interested players are invited to attend our 2018 MHA tryouts which takes place at Farmington Hills Ice Arena in early August.  From there, selected players are invited back to the MHA Top 80 Showcase in late August, where numbers are reduced and selected players are divided up among four teams and compete in a three day, tryout format that features:

 

  • Three games with 17 minute stop-time periods.  
  • Educational seminars featuring guest speakers who will speak on a variety of topics, including the recommended pathway to junior, collegiate and professional hockey.  
  • Comprehensive player scout book that includes each individual's academic scores, stats and contact info.  
  • The "Bauer Experience," where players demo cutting-edge equipment from the world's largest hockey outfitter.   
  • Exit meeting with MHA coaches and staff.
