Well, it’s official! The Admirals Hockey Club will be announced as the first USA Hockey Model Association in Illinois. We are joining an elite group of Clubs in the nation selected by USA Hockey as leaders in player development. What does that mean? It means that our commitment to player development has been rewarded. From mites to midgets, girls to boys, we will continue to focus on the athlete and their development. By utilizing USA Hockey's ADM (American Development Model) and LTAD (Long Term Athletic Development) our athletes receive the best training, the right practice to game ratios and the right philosophies on practice concepts and skills. This foundation allows every player to reach their full potential.
Starting this fall, all of our teams will utilize USA Hockey’s ADM training, along with team practices and league games in either NIHL or NWHL. Now that all of the players will train using the best methods, they will also have the opportunity to play at their competitive level in league play. By combining all of our current players, we will have multiple teams at each level in NIHL (Gold/Elite, Silver and Bronze). We will also have multiple NWHL teams, a Midget Program and a complete Girls Program with teams at the 12U, 14U and 16U level. All teams will be allowed to participate in tournaments as well as the State Tournament. Our youngest hockey players in pre-hockey and our ADML (Admirals Development Mite League) will continue their long hockey journey on the right path.
We will have more details about our fall programing and fall coaches very soon. So watch for more information to come via email blasts and our website. We will also be holding town hall meetings during the summer skates. And with Hockeypalooza only a few weeks away, all the information will be at the rink along with food and fun. USAH will be attending our Hockeypalooza and hosting a few informative presentations you won’t want to miss.
I would like to thank all of our players, coaches, hockey directors, parents, volunteers, managers and board members for all their hard work and dedication to obtain this awesome achievement. Enjoy the rest of the summer and get ready for a great hockey season!
