Jr. Americans Youth Hockey Program
By incorporating USA Hockey’s American Development Model (ADM), we can raise the level of creativity among players, increase player participation, and create a positive environment for kids to play, love and excel. The Jr. Americans Youth Hockey Program provides players an age-appropriate environment in which they can reach their potential and most importantly have FUN.
On- and off-the-ice practice sessions are structured using USA Hockey guidelines, with a high expectation for fair play and sportsmanship. Mite (8U), Squirt (10U) and Peewee (12U) games are played exclusively at Allen Community Ice Rink. Allen will conduct in-house games to determine fairness and skill balance of teams to maximize development and fun.
