The Michigan Amateur Hockey Association is teaming up with USA Hockey to conduct an American Development Model roadshow with multiple stops in Metro Detroit next week.
The roadshow will feature presentations by USA Hockey ADM regional managers, along with on-ice, station-based practice sessions designed to explain the ADM and the principles of long-term athlete development to parents, coaches and volunteers.
MAHA President George Atkinson, in a statement, said the presentations “will help inform parents of what to expect from USA Hockey's skill development program…designed to teach young players the skills they need to have fun playing the game.”
"We are fortunate to have the staff of USA
Hockey, whose knowledge,
experience and passion is contagious, leading these presentations and we
hope that having a better understanding of the ADM will help parents make
the right choice when selecting a hockey program for their young player."
Since being introduced in 2009, the ADM has gained international recognition as a best-practice model for young athletes.
"Our mission is to answer questions and inform parents on the ADM's emphasis on age-appropriate skill development," said Bob Mancini, a USA Hockey ADM regional manager.
