ABOUT THE In House program

Carlsbad Icetown introduces an innovative, cutting edge approach to your traditional in-house youth hockey program following the guidelines of USA Hockey’s ADM (American Development Model) backed by the National Hockey League, NCAA, and US Olympic Committee.  

Icetown is committed to offering an age appropriate and positive learning environment focused on long term athlete development principles (LTAD). Icetown's primary focus is on creating a "development zone" where kids learn life lessons through sport while rapidly developing their skills towards fulfilling their ultimate potential. We are completely against the hyper-competitive, adult focused, "win at all costs" culture and are committed to doing what's best for the athlete on and off the ice.

Practices are held at Icetown Carlsbad and games are played against local teams in the San Diego Metro Area.

ADM- Building Blocks

Play- Playing the game is where kids learn that the game is, in its simplest form, fun. By mixing in age appropriate training and practice with an introduction to skills and athleticism, kids will have even more fun.

Love- Once kids learn to play the game and begin to develop skills and athleticism, hockey begins to take priority among their other activities. Skills become more refined, their physical and mental makeup is stronger and the friendships they developed early on continue to grow.  

Excel- Now that they play and love the game, a higher premium can be placed on excelling at it.  But, above all, the game is still fun and the friendships that were forged back in Mites are as strong as ever.
