The National Women’s Hockey League Players’ Association (NWHLPA) is the organization dedicated to providing all players an opportunity within the league, to come together as a unified voice to express their vision of women’s professional hockey in the NWHL. The NWHLPA will cultivate an environment for which women can continue their hockey careers past the collegiate level and participate in events for the betterment of surrounding communities.

The National Women’s Hockey League has given a new goal to younger generations of girls playing hockey: that they can continue in the sport they love  at a professional level after college with compensation. The NWHL and the NWHLPA work  together to continue this aspiration.
