The Nashville Jr. Predators Hockey Club is a non-profit organization and was reestablished in 2019, when the Nashville Jr. Predators (EST. 2009) and the Thunder AAA Hockey Club (EST. 2004) merged together in the long-term best interest of the players and their families.  NJP goal is to allow players to live at home or close to home, while still competing at the Tier I AAA, Tier II AA and Tier II Girls level against other top programs in the country. National in structure, Tier I AAA hockey is the most highly scouted and recruited youth division which produces the most players for non-pay-to-play junior leagues such as the USHL, NAHL and CHL. NJP hockey offers student-athletes access to full time professional hockey coaches that work within the guidelines laid out by the USA Hockey American Development Model (ADM). All of this is done in an effort to develop student-athletes for opportunities in hockey, the classroom and life. Jr. Predators alumni have been drafted to and/or are playing in the NHL, NCAA, USHL, NAHL, NA3HL, and CHL.
