Futures Development Program

Overview of Program

The Futures Development Program, provides an opportunity for players to train under a specially designed Minnesota and American Development Model curriculum, with program administration being run through each of the Minnesota Hockey Districts. Registration will be honored on a first-come, first-served basis. If you’re looking for a Spring development opportunity, this program is a perfect fit for you.

There will be a 15U program for 2009 and 2010 birth years, and a 13U program for 2011 and 2012 birth years. The 15U program will run from April 8 - May 26. The 13U program will run from March 25 - May 19. District specific schedules will vary, but will largely operate within those time frames.

The Futures Development Program is designed to provide a fun, constructive and dynamic developmental opportunity for skaters and goalies during the Spring. Player development is the core focus of this program:

  • 13 hours of developmental training
  • A mid-program 3v3 jamboree; teams play 4 cross-ice games (some travel may be required, and the intention is to consolidate each team’s 3v3 events into a single day).
  • End of program festival that will include two 5v5 games for each team (some travel may be required, and the intention is to consolidate each team’s 5v5 events into a single day).
  • A Program uniform – jersey and socks.
  • Player swag.

The Futures Development Program allows athletes to concurrently participate in other sports during the program’s timeframe. It is strongly encouraged that athletes participate in and prioritize other in-season sports, even if that means missing some designated ice sessions.
