We represent the ice hockey players of Switzerland


The SIHPU – our purpose
The association Swiss Ice Hockey Players’ Union (SIHPU) represents and advocates for the interests of the ice hockey players of the National League (NL) towards the Swiss Ice Hockey Federation (SIHF), the clubs as well as other institutions within sport and politics. The SIHPU is committed to the needs of the players, submits the corresponding interests as well as suggestions for improvement to the SIHF’s competitive sports committee and thus puts the current concerns of the ice hockey players on the agenda league meetings.

The SIHPU – our goal
SIHPU continues to develop Swiss ice hockey from the players’ point of view.

The SIHPU – motivation and successes

The idea for the foundation of SIHPU came from active ice hockey players, who recognized the necessity of representing the interests of the players in Swiss ice hockey. Moreover, they wanted to give back and further invest into the sport by founding this union. The twelve NL teams welcomed and supported the idea from the very beginning. With the broad know-how of the active and now also former players on the board, SIHPU has already achieved various improvements. Flexible board elements, locker room visits by referees, better screens for video decisions, fairer gradation in the catalogue of fines, on-schedule Youth and Sports coaching courses for NL players – all these improvements were promoted by SIHPU. It is precisely successes like these, that underline the importance of our work and we are all the more pleased to be able to represent the concerns of the NL ice hockey players in the ongoing future.
