The United States Olympic Committee, in partnership with the National Governing Bodies, created the American Development Model in 2014 to help Americans realize their full athletic potential and utilize sport as a path toward an active and healthy lifestyle.
  12. 12. The Why, Who & What of ADMThinking? American Development Model • The ADM explains an athlete’s advancement through a five- stage pathway that supports a healthy sport experience based on physical, mental and emotional levels, and potential for growth. • Based on Long Term Athlete Development (Balyi & Way)
  13. 13. The Why, Who & What of ADMThinking? ADM Outcomes • Grow both the general athlete population and the pool of elite athletes from which U.S. Olympians and Paralympians are selected • Develop fundamental skills that transfer between sports • Provide an appropriate avenue to fulfill an individual’s athletic potential • Create a generation that loves sport and physical activity, and then transfers that passion to the next generation

  17. 17. Asking the Hard Question: Are we developing athletes or mini-adult players? "We have to capitalize on what is known as the optimal window of skill acquisition - the age that a kid can maximize his genetic potential, whatever that might be. In hockey, skill acquisition - that optimum trainability - is through 12 years old. So we had to ask ourselves, for two years, are we creating an environment where the focus is on hitting and not on making plays?" 22 // USOC
