The TOP Progression Path is a four-stage system of development designed to take our athletes from age 5 (tyke) to age 14 (bantam) and beyond. At each stage we have identified key learnings and associated values we want players to learn, as well as key teaching points on the ice. As players grow they will learn more advanced skills, game scenarios, and be exposed to advanced character-based development. The number of practices and games will slowly increase with age, allowing players to execute their skills learned in practice in a competitive setting.
By the end of "TOP Excel", players will have an excellent understanding of skills in their primary sport, as well as a complimentary background of athletic skills, value based learning, and life skills.
