The game is, after all, the best possible teacher.

Join Ion Hockey Director Doug Plocki and his staff of college and junior players for a week experiencing USA Hockey’s American Development Model (”ADM”). We will cover every aspect of the game- skills, core concepts, individual and group strategies, compete, and FUN – ADM-style practices utilize station-based drills and small area games to increase puck touches, player interactions, and decision-making all within the context of the game. 

ADM practices are the pathway to high performance throughout a player’s entire career. The transferability of skills developed in small area games to the modern game is well-established, and players from youth, junior, college, and pro ranks utilize this valuable teaching tool. NHL coaches like David Sullivan, Ty Hennes, and John Heinz use small area games to keep professional players sharp, motivated, and interested.

Players at ADM practices move more and do more in their practices. As a result, ADM-style practices deliver more efficient skill development and produce more skilled players. The ADM is a nationwide blueprint designed specifically to help kids reach their full potential.
Small area games also allow our players to train in space proportionally relevant to their size and skill level so that training is transferrable as they advance. Most of the modern game is played in small areas. Smaller players on small ice play the game with the same amount of time and space to make plays as they will when they are older players on full ice.
