ADM Kids

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

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.
