Boston Shamrocks and US Performance Academy Join Forces To Provide High Quality College Preparatory Education For All Shamrocks Players

Monday, March 30, 2015

The Boston Shamrocks are proud to announce its partnership with the US Performance Academy, an independent, digital, middle and high school, to provide its student athletes with a college preparatory education that fits within the Shamrocks’ demanding in-season schedule.

The Boston Shamrocks is a USA Hockey registered team that plays in the Junior Women’s Hockey League on college campuses against some of the best teams in North America. The Shamrocks also play in top tournaments in the United States and Canada with maximum exposure to college and national team coaches. The Shamrocks have a consistent schedule of practices, strength training, and games. The team also utilizes classroom and video sessions to train in positional and team tactics to develop the entire player.

Motivated by developing the entire student athlete, the Boston Shamrocks’ executive team has partnered with US Performance Academy (USPA) to provide a digital, personalized learning solution for their student athletes. With an intense training and game schedule, these young women are unable attend a traditional school with set times and locations. USPA was designed specifically to support the lifestyle of high performance athletes. Each student-athlete has an individualized school calendar and schedule with full support from teachers, coaches, and college counselors. College-prep courses are all held on a digital platform that can be accessed from almost any location.

“Our athletes have very demanding schedules and promising futures.” says Bob Rotondo, Boston Shamrocks’ General Manager. “We want to provide each athlete with the best resources available, both on and off the ice. When it comes to their education, US Performance Academy is the obvious best solution. With their experience with student athletes, flexibility of courses, along with their support and understanding of the athlete as a whole person, I’m excited to announce that USPA is now our official education provider.”

Every Boston Shamrocks athlete will now also become a student of the US Performance Academy. The two entities will work as a team to provide the best experience possible for each student athlete to achieve their individual educational goals.

“It’s obvious that Bob and the entire coaching staff of the Boston Shamrocks work hard to develop highly competitive athletes.” says Peter Smith, president of USPA. “We are excited to now be a part of this wonderful organization. We are particularly looking forward to getting to know each student and family and designing the ideal schedule for each individual student athlete. It can be challenging to find that balance between training and school, and we look forward to supporting the Shamrocks athletes in integrating and succeeding in both areas.”
