Our History

Founded in 2020, the Elmira Impact have completed three seasons playing in the USPHL. Since then, over 100 players from eight countries have come to Elmira to live and improve!

More than 30 former Elmira Impact players are playing college hockey and higher levels of junior hockey. Jr.Enforcers alumni are in NCAA D-1, NCAA D-3, NAHL, USHL, NCDC, and the ACHA!

In the 2022-23 season the club expanded, adding a USPHL Elite level team.

Now in 2023-24, our USPHL Premier and Elite teams are rebranding as the Elmira Impact. Our new brand reflects the positive impact our organization has on our players and our communities!

Billet Families

Our players’ typical day includes 2 ice sessions, video sessions, schoolwork, and workout with a dedicated trainer in a state-of-the-art gym.

Our players live in a local college dorm and with billet families. Both the college and the billet families received high grades in our post-season player surveys.

Are you interested in becoming a billet family and hosting a young hockey player? Host families receive free tickets and a monthly reimbursement for food and expenses. Please email us at info@elmiraimpact.com to learn more!

Vision:

To equip young men to make valuable contributions to their future chosen professions, their future home communities and the game of hockey through:

  • An on-ice and off-ice hockey program that emphasizes work ethic and teamwork that teaches the finer points of the game to advance playing careers and equip players to share that knowledge with younger generations. 
  • Allowing for and encouraging academic development including on-line education and local public school and college to continue a pattern of life-long learning.
  • A rigorous conditioning program that reduces the risk of injury and physically trains their bodies for the rigors of a full-time junior A hockey season. 
  • Mandatory community service projects that connect our players with diverse groups within the local community to instill empathy and respect for others.

Value Proposition:

  • We provide value for every family by always making the health and well-being of our players our priority. 
  • We provide value for every family by proactively seeking opportunities to promote players within the USPHL ladder of development to the NCDC and ultimately college hockey.   
  • We provide value for every family by conducting ourselves in a professional manner above a typical junior A level. 
  • We provide value for every family by communicating regularly with parents.
