The Minnesota Model Association Program is designed to encourage, recognize and reward hockey associations who implement age appropriate skill development as outlined in the Minnesota Development Model (MDM) of best practices leading to greater skill development and retention of players. The MDM, which was adapted from the American Development Model, provides the blueprint and the Model Association Program assists association toward implementing the MDM. The Minnesota Model Association Program features four levels (Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum) of accomplishment with the intent of promoting a culture of continuous improvement.
