Historic Prep Programs join to create six-team league for next season

Some of the oldest and most storied prep programs in North America have teamed up for the 2021-22 season to form the Prep Hockey Conference (PHC). Culver Academy, Mount Saint Charles Academy, Northwood School, Shattuck-St. Mary’s, South Kent School and St. Andrew’s College have combined to form a six-team league.

St. Andrew’s is one of the oldest in Canada, going back more than 100 years. Mount Saint Charles into the 1930s. Culver and Northwood’s programs date back to the 1970s. Shattuck in the 1990s and South Kent from the 1980s. There’s no shortage of history among these schools and the resumes they’ve compiled in terms of state and national championships, as well as NHL alumni is unmatched. 

This newly-formed six-team conference spans more than 1,300 miles from New England to Ontario and the Midwest. The PHC plans to establish itself as the premier prep hockey league in North America by setting the highest standards for competitiveness and maintaining a level of institutional investment that demonstrates a significant commitment to its hockey programs and facilities. The goal is to establish relationships within and beyond the hockey world that create a high degree of visibility and positive media exposure for the PHC, its programs and its players.
