The Chicago Mission in conjunction with AHAI and USA Hockey will conduct the Mite ADM program for a second season. This upcoming season a Squirt Minor ADM team will be part of the program. Mites will continue playing half- or cross-ice with a focus on skill development. Chicago Mission will again host a Thanksgiving tournament while scheduling local games with clubs offering cross-ice programs.
The Squirt Minor ADM program will continue on the skill development path while playing selective full-ice tournaments beginning mid-season. Both the Mite and Squirt Minor ADM programs will have three ice slots per week for 24 weeks. Coaching staff will be drawn from regular Chicago Mission coaching staff with all ice at Seven Bridges Ice Arena. We are excited about the Mission’s continued support of the American Development Model. Clubs are encouraged to reach out to the Mission ADM staff and schedule games or jamborees with their ADM teams.
