The Tier I Pee Wee division was eliminated in 2013 in favor of adding a Tier II Pee Wee division to the tournament with each Affiliate entering two teams. The Tier II division's inclusion is in support of the USA Hockey's ADM Learn to Train stage for 11 and 12 year old athletes.

The Girls'/Women's event will consist of four teams in Girls 14U, two teams in Girls 16U, four teams in Girls 19U, two teams in Women's B and four teams in Women's C.

New Video Quantifies Cross-Ice Advantages

The NHL analytics team uses tracking technology to compare cross-ice to full-ice for 8U players

A cutting-edge NHL analytics team put the test to youth hockey for the first time ever, comparing cross-ice hockey to full-ice hockey. Watch this video and see what you think.

ADM Kids

What is it like to play on full ice as a 8 year old?

To demonstrate how a full sheet of ice looks to a child, USA Hockey put adult players on an extra large rink with giant nets to simulate what a child sees. The players found the games tiring, difficult and said they would lose interest quickly in the sport if that was what they faced. See how adult players opened their eyes to what is being taught by the American Development Model of cross-ice hockey and small area games. Learn more at ADMKids.com.
