Our Development Model

WOLVES DEN of DEVELOPMENT

Starting in the Fall of 2017, the Wolves "Den of Development" Model was created by Coach Tim Kunes & GM Andrew Trimble in order to develop their athletes within a structured, skill- based, platform.  The Development Model is centered on:

* Daily Skill Sessions in addition to Team Practices

* Position- Specific On Ice Sessions (Forward, Defenseman, Goalie)

* Specialized Workouts Each Day (Flexibility, Power, Conditioning)

* Multiple Video Sessions a Week

* Peak Performance Counseling

"Every day is a Full Day with our Athletes.  It is a job.  Kids punch their clock in the morning and are either on the ice, in the video room, or doing a workout over the course of the entire day." - GM Andrew Trimble
