First USAH Model Association in Illinois

The Admirals Hockey Club was recently announced as the first USA Hockey Model Association in Illinois. We join 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 on our 23 fall teams and our in-house ADML and Pre-Hockey programs to reach their full potential.


Latest Admirals News

The  Admirals Bantam AA team hosted an exhibition sled hockey game vs. the Chicago Hornets on Saturday, March 14 to raise awareness and support for the paralympic sport of sled hockey and the Hornets team.  

Players from both teams had a great time in the action-packed game, and the stands were filled with hockey fans.  Olympian Brody Roybal showed off his skills on the ice and brought his gold medal to share with the players. The Admirals and the generous hockey community raised $3,773.80 for the Chicago Hornets, enough to purchase 6 sleds for the team.  

See photos from the event, as well as a news article about the game in the Daily Herald.  For more information on sled hockey, see the Chicago Hornets website or view this documentary about the 2014 Men's Sled Hockey Paralympic team in pursuit of the gold in Sochi.

Special thanks to June Keeley and Julie Christman for organizing such a memorable and successful day of hockey!
