This week on The Breakdown, Dave Starman is switching up the normal format to take a look at why it’s critical to implement an effective development model for youth hockey. Always a highly debated topic, Dave believes it all boils down to one important decision.
“The number one thing that we all need to realize as coaches and administrators is our program is going to be better if we work on a development model versus a competition model, especially at the younger ages.”
Join him as he breaks down the model he helped craft with PAL Jr Islanders; Starman is joined by a variety of guests who share their valuable thoughts on the subject, including Quinnipiac University Head Coach Rand Pecknold and Princeton University Head Coach Ron Fogarty.
