"We should always strive to do the right thing for kids, and the American Development Model does just that. Hockey has evolved. Coaches and parents have certainly tried to do the right thing in regard to development, but we haven't had a national blueprint for associations to use—something based on solid research—until now. This is a major step forward, and USA Hockey is to be commended for its leadership." "USA Hockey continues to do wonderful things in every aspect of the sport. And for kids, providing the best development programs and safest possible environment are at the forefront of every decision made." – RON WILSON, 2016 U.S. National Junior Team head coach, winningest American coach in NHL history – KATEY STONE, 2014 United States Olympic Women's Hockey head coach, winningest coach in NCAA Division I women's ice hockey history 25 PHOTOS BY GETTY IMAGES 25
