BUILDING THE TPHATHLETEPERSONSTUDENT

The TPH Academy training program is designed for aspiring elite student-athletes who are willing to invest their time and effort into personal growth. At TPH we recognize that individual skill focus often gets neglected due to busy competition schedules, lack of facility accessibility after academic hours, and team-centric coaching. TPH is focused on long-term student-athlete development by providing platforms that allow each individual to discover new levels of potential. 

Frequently Asked Questions

While we are one team, TPH Academy is not sports a team. We are an academy that allows you to focus on your individual skills. Additionally, you can still play for your current team. This makes for an awesome training environment where our student-athletes get to build a community with like-minded student-athletes.

At TPH Academy, each student-athlete learns from certified Teachers through our customizable virtual platforms, with access to virtual tutors 24/7. Our on-site Head of Academics and Success Coach(es) are additional resources as they cultivate an environment conducive to learning. These multiple layers of support ensure that your student-athlete receives a personalized academic plan, preparing them for the ultimate game: the game of life.

Our student-athletes train four days a week in the gym on-site with our coaches.

DID YOU KNOW: student-athletes can receive physical education credit for the training.

They are certainly welcome to, but we do offer a meal plan working with the restaurant, located inside the facility, to offer healthy and delicious options at an affordable price.

This is one of the primary benefits of TPH Academy. We believe that the traditional brick-and-mortar system is not conducive to the lifestyle of the aspiring elite student-athlete. We are flexible with our attendance policy because we understand the travel that sports require and the toll a season can take on a student-athlete. The beauty of our platform is that we can operate virtually. The biggest factor is that we believe our student-athletes get the most out of their experience by attending on-site, but we understand that may not always be possible.

Our mentorship program aims to educate our student-athletes on “the process” of becoming elite. Part of that is through the mentorship program, which includes Coach FA's Mentorship Program, community service, and guest speakers.

TPH Academy provides balance as we tailor our athletic and academic development model to each student-athlete. Much of the daily experience is shaped by when, where, and how your student-athlete studies, trains, and plays at his or her best.

Courses and assignments are tailored to each individual and prioritized by the TPH academic team in partnership with the student-athlete, keeping in mind their weekly sports and competition schedule.

Additionally, we require our student-athletes to fill out weekly surveys through RippleWorx, our athlete management system, to help our staff understand the holistic state of our student-athletes. These surveys track sleep, nutrition, injuries, and more to ensure we know how to balance each student-athlete's workload.

TPH Academy can provide support for IEP's and 504's. We have built our centers with learning environments that help all types of learners and set up our student-athletes for success. However, students will have to complete a determination meeting with our education partner to ensure we can meet all the needs of the student.
