Nearly a million athletes over the age of 14 participate in North American hockey leagues each year. PlayingUpHockey.com is a social media hockey website designed for these boys and girls to interact, share stats, post highlight videos, discuss camps, learn about hockey programs, and gain exposure to the scouts and coaches that matter most. And PlayingUpHockey has a powerful data engine allowing scouts and coaches at all levels the ability to query potential players based on personal profiles and accomplishments both on and off the ice.

NHL legend, Phil Esposito, is leading the charge as PlayingUpHockey.com helps aspiring hockey players showcase their talent, get exposure, and get recruited to play at the next level.

At the playingUpHockey website, players can start by creating a profile this summer, and then stay tuned as more features and programs get added at the start of the hockey season.
