THANK YOU RMHS!
Hello JDIA members!
My name is Bryan Smith, and I am the president and director of hockey operations for Rocky Mountain Hockey Schools.
RMHS hosted a summer camp in Juneau for about six years. This year we are coming back, and we could not be more excited. We will be on the ice with all the association members for what we hope to be our annual association development clinic. These are our favorite types of development because we get to work with all the athletes and coaches all week.
The RMHS staff will also host a coaches clinic covering skills training, defensive zone coverage, offensive zone entries, face-off strategies, game-day bench management, and more!
The staff this year will be me and Lewie Kellin. I have been coaching youth hockey for 20+ years. Coach Lewie has been by my side and coaching for 20+ years. We will bring a lot of background and energy next week, and we cant wait to meet everyone.
In the meantime, let me know if you have any questions!

The Juneau Douglas Ice Association (JDIA) is an affiliate of the USA Hockey Association and the Alaska State Hockey Association (ASHA) in good standing. JDIA is a 501(c) 3 non-profit corporation committed to conducting a developmental and recreational Youth Hockey Program. JDIA utilizes the Treadwell Ice Arena for practice/instruction sessions as well as scrimmages and games. Use of this facility is made possible by rental basis only, and scheduling is subject to change at the discretion of the Rink Manager, CBJ-Parks and Recreation Department.
JDIA provides a fun and safe hockey program for youths ages 4-18. We support fair ice time for all players for JDIA games. Coaches are encouraged to use their best efforts to give ice time fairly to all players on their team. In general, the "fair ice" policy applies to goalies. However, it is left to the coaches to decide how to rotate goalies on teams with more than one. For travel teams, the travel team coach will have greater latitude in providing ice time for players.
The American Development Model (ADM) is a nationwide model developed by USA Hockey for successfully developing American hockey players. It is a tool that will ensure every kid will have the same chance to succeed. For example, part of that success will come from kids of all skill levels playing together. They’ll be able to work with the best coaches and learn from each other as they grow and learn the sport of hockey. Another great benefit of having more kids on the ice together is that the total cost of ice goes down per player. Again, the ADM is a set of guidelines designed specifically to help kids reach their full potential. In accordance with the Alaska State Hockey Association, JDIA has incorporated the ADM into its program for all age groups. Part of the ADM is that players need to be balanced. Studies have shown that the best developed hockey players are those that play in multiple sports and activities. Not just hockey. That is why we encourage players to stay active year round in different sports. Another aspect of the ADM is the emphasis on individual skill development. The emphasis at practices will be developing each player to their full potential while having fun. This includes lots of small area drills and games. Hockey games are seldom won with the one man break away. It is mostly won in the small area battles in the corners and in front of the net. The result is more puck touches and skating development for every player. JDIA will continue to incorporate the ADM philosophy into its program.
