Academic Excellence - Win Every Shift

School is just starting for all our NIHL players. Did you know that the league celebrates their accomplishments in the classroom? The league offers the Academic Excellence Award to our outstanding NIHL scholars in grade school, middle school and high school. It may be happening soon, or it may still be very far off, but we know that colleges like to see that student athletes like yours excell on the ice and in the classroom. In fact, the NIHL Academic Excellence Award demonstrates that a student is organized, responsible, intelligent and knows how to manage time.
