ADM Road Show Motors to
Success in Michigan
By Phil Colvin
USA Hockey teamed up with the Michigan Amateur Hockey Association to conduct an American Development Model road show that made stops at 11 associations across the state this week. Designed to introduce and explain the ADM and the principles of long-term athlete development to parents, coaches and volunteers, the road show featured presentations by USA Hockey ADM regional managers, along with on-ice, station-based practice sessions at several locations. “It was terrific to have USA Hockey’s Ken Martel here to help our parents understand the benefits and principles behind the American Development Model,” said Cal McGowan of Suburban Hockey in Farmington Hills, Mich. “Our association appreciates USA Hockey’s commitment to developing our young players.”
