ICE DRAGONS PROGRAM OVERVIEW

SINGAPORE ICE DRAGONS SEASON 2019/2020

THE SINGAPORE ICE DRAGON’S SEASON PROGRAM & DESCRIPTION

The Ice Dragon’s Approach: The Singapore Ice Dragons program training follows the ADM (American Development Model), the USA Hockey’s player-development program for youth hockey associations. It’s based on age-appropriate, age-specific competition and training for boys and girls, beginning with their first steps onto the ice and carrying them through age 18 and beyond. The ADM places a heightened emphasis on skill development and long-term athlete development principles, providing a blueprint for the best possible youth hockey experience.

Singapore Ice Dragons is the Youth Development Ice Hockey program, an integral part of the Singapore Ice Hockey Association (SIHA), Singapore’s national sports association for Ice Hockey.

To be granted the privilege and eligibility to play ice hockey in Singapore, it is compulsory for all participants to register and pay for an annual SIHA membership (linked to the Ice Dragon’s season). SIHA membership affords player benefits inclusive of accidental and public liability insurance, and access to ice bookings with a SIHA discount.
