By Michael Rand 04/03/2019, 9:15am EDT

John Harrington knows the importance of winning battles in front of the net, both as a player and a coach.

A member of the 1980 U.S. Olympic gold medal team and a Minnesota Duluth product, Harrington is currently the head coach of the Minnesota State women’s team.

Winning, Development, and the Big Picture at 10U

By By Michael Rand 04/03/2019, 9:00am EDT

If 8U is about cross-ice hockey and fundamental skill-building, there is perhaps a tendency to rush into opposites at 10U.

The grass may appear greener at 10U – with full-ice hockey.

The problem is that a complete 180 is seldom a good idea, and it certainly isn’t in this case. Bob Mancini, a regional manager for USA Hockey’s American Development Model, has some thoughts on why 10U hockey still requires a look at the big picture and a focus on skill development over results.
