Jr. Americans Youth Hockey Program (JAYHP)
By incorporating USA Hockey’s American Development Model (ADM), we can raise the level of creativity among players, increase player participation, and create a positive environment for kids to play, love and excel. The Jr. Americans Youth Hockey Program provides players an age-appropriate environment in which they can reach their potential and most importantly have FUN. On- and off-the-ice practice sessions will be structured, utilizing USA Hockey guidelines, with a high expectation for fair play and sportsmanship. Mite (8U), Squirt (10U) and Peewee (12U) games will be played exclusively at the Allen Community Ice Rink. Allen will conduct in house games to determine fairness and skill balance of teams to maximize development and fun.

Stick-time also provides an opportunity for players to practice their skills one-on-one with a coach. Sessions are limited to 25 skaters on a “first-come, first-serve” basis.
