To demonstrate how a full sheet of ice looks to a child, USA Hockey put adult players on an extra large rink with giant nets to simulate what a child sees. 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

NEW Look for 8U/Mite Skaters

The Chippewa Youth Hockey Association is continuing their support of the USA Hockey American Development Model and our commitment to cross ice hockey at the 8U/Mite level. To do this we have ordered and will become one of the first associations in Wisconsin to use cross ice divider panels. Currently we have one set due to arrive in early November and are looking for sponsors for a second set.
