The American Development Model is a nationwide model for successfully developing American hockey players. It is a tool that will ensure every kid will have a great chance to succeed.
By implementing USA Hockey's ADM, associations deliver more efficient skill development, will produce more skilled players and experience an increase in player retention. The ADM is a nationwide blueprint designed specifically to help kids reach their full potential.
Our club will do our best to incorporate the ADM model into our program.

The Noah King Scholarship was created by the King family in memory of their son Noah, who grew up playing hockey in our area. The goal of scholarship is to remove financial barriers for a child who loves to play hockey. In making its decision, the Board of Keene Ice will consider the child’s personal statement as expressed in their application letter, the supporting letter of recommendation from their coach/teacher/mentor, and financial need. As volunteers who actively support youth hockey in our region, I want you to be aware of this scholarship and hope that you would be willing to encourage any eligible child in the program who might benefit from the award to apply. The application instructions can be found at: http://keeneice.com/noah-king-ice-hockey-scholarship/
Noah King developed his love for skating on the local ponds and outdoor rinks throughout the Monadnock Region. At the age of 11 or 12, Noah became a youth hockey player in Keene, and later skated for Keene High School. Like many New Englanders, hockey remained a passion for Noah into adulthood, and he played in leagues in Boston in the years following high school. While Noah had a love for all sports, hockey was his favorite, and his love for skating never ceased. Whether watching a game, playing in high school, or just skating on the pond, he found great joy, and created great memories, from skating.
Tragically, Noah lost his life much too early, and left behind a loving family and many friends. The Noah King Scholarship was created by Noah’s family and friends, in tribute to Noah, to provide financial support, in the form of a $500 scholarship (awarded annually), for a child who is interested in playing youth hockey in the Keene Youth Hockey organization. The goal is to create an opportunity, which might not otherwise exist, for a child to participate in the Keene programs and, like Noah, develop a lifelong love of the game.
