From what I see, ADM has been put in place as a guideline to help improve training. Lots of ideas and concepts aimed to foster new thinking. 8 year olds working on positioning and shooting during practice? That's the kind of brain dead thinking that ADM is trying to combat. How about high repetition...

I believe St. Louis is not in the WHL territory or half their team (Jr. Blues) would be in that top 40 list. Logan Brown, Ty Farmer, Zach Solow, Woll, and the list goes on with that team. This team did not play Rosemount and if it did, double digit beat down would have happened. St. Louis Selects i...

BS, the parents want their kid to be in the spotlight! Maybe the parents should use this as a life long lesson, instead of making the coach the scapegoat.

Different strokes for different folks. Coaches do all kinds of things whether you agree with them or not.
