The Admirals follow the USA Hockey Athletic Development Model (ADM) to provide the best possible experience for your up and coming hockey player. At ages 5-8 years old, our objective for physical development is to refine fundamental movement skills and begin to acquire basic sports skills. This is the time when the foundation is laid for future acquisition of more advanced skills. As far as psychological development goes, we will be focusing on providing FUN, motivating practices and games, developing reasoning skills through unstructured competition, building confidence by creating competitive groups, which will allow for a high rate of success and promoting individual and group participation as well as introducing the participants to simple rules and sports ethics (fair play). The In-House program will meet for skills, practices, and half-ice games. We will attempt to team up with other local organizations for Jamborees and practice games. All players who register will be placed on a team – there are no cuts.
For older players new to hockey, we will have weekly skills, practices, and half-ice games. The focus will be on providing FUN, motivating practices and game, developing reasoning skills through unstructured competition and building confidence by creating competitive groups. This program assists our beginning hockey players to develop their skills with players who are of similar age, size, and ability. All players who register will participate in a session evaluation and be placed on a team – there are no cuts.
