American Development ModelPLAYPlaying the game is where kids learn that the game is, in its simplest form, fun. By mixing inage‐appropriate Training and practice with an introduction to skills and athleticism, kids willhave even more fun. And to keep it fun, there should be a low priority placed on winning andlosing and a high priority placed on just introducing the game to a young kid.LOVEOnce kids learn to play the game and begin to develop skills and athleticism, hockey begins totake priority among their other activities. Skills become more refined, their physical and mentalmakeup is stronger and the friendships they developed early on continue to grow. The gamesbecome more important, and hockey in general becomes a bigger part of their lives.EXCELNow that they play and love the game, a higher premium can be placed on excelling at it.Tougher competition and more of a focus on mastering skills play an increased role in theirdevelopment. Hockey starts to take a larger priority over other activities. But, above all, thegame is still fun and the friendships that were forged back in Mites are as strong as ever.The bottom line is that if we can give kids reasons to stick with the game, we can unlock theirpotential and help them excel at the game they play and love. 9
