The United States Premier Hockey League in partnership with the Tampa Bay Juniors are excited to welcome fans, families and college scouts to the second annual USPHL Tampa Showcase, to be held Wednesday, Jan. 3, through Saturday, Jan. 6, 2024, at AdventHealth Center Ice in Wesley Chapel, Fla., with action on three sheets of ice every day.
The USPHL and the Tampa Bay Juniors will welcome teams from six of the nine USPHL Premier Divisions and four of the five full-time USPHL Elite Divisions. Overall, there will be 20 USPHL Premier and 14 USPHL Elite teams for a total of 34 junior squads playing over the four-day event. The first two games begin Wednesday morning, Jan. 3, at 9:30 a.m. and the final two games are scheduled for 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 6.
The USPHL Tampa Showcase has quickly become one of the biggest events on the USPHL calendar and a key North and Midwest vs. South teams match-up event as teams prepare for the stretch run towards the playoffs that begin generally in March and culminate with the USPHL Premier and Elite National Championships March 21-26, 2024. That event will take place for a second straight year at the Utica University Nexus Centre, a state-of-the-art which opened its doors in 2022.
There could very well be a number of “Nationals preview” game match-ups taking place at the USPHL Tampa Showcase – time will tell.
College coaches will find first class hospitality and private viewing areas overlooking all three rinks, as well as an exceptionally helpful Tampa Bay Juniors and league staff to assist you with player contacts and interviews where needed. For those who unfortunately cannot join us in person, we hope you will watch on FloHockey.tv.

We appreciate your support of, and interest in, our student-athletes.
