As a USA Hockey (USAH) Model Association, the Admirals Hockey Club fully supports USAH and its philosophies on 8U hockey – namely, that our youngest players need high-activity skill development, a lot of puck touches, and an efficient use of ice time and space to build agility, balance, and coordination while having fun. The US8 Selects program is open to players in birth years 2009-2011 and focuses on elite skill development through station based skills practices and the top USAH training methods. Our teams will also participate in jamborees and half-ice games vs US8 Selects teams and other AA/A teams. There are no cuts; all players who try out will make a team. This program will be a 3 day a week program and run September – March.
