Our Process

Our Step by Step look 8U-18U

8U Development (2015-2016) - Our "Intro to travel program allows our 8U Metro players a first hand look at a smaller scale travel season. Through weekly development sessions our 8u players will work hard to develop proper fundamentals and foundational skills all while having a memorable expierence with their teammates.

10U & 12U - The USA Hockey "Learn to Train" phase takes place during the ages of 10-12. These age levels are prime opportunites for players to develop fine motor skills and the RIGHT way to train. USA Hockey explains that what is learned during this time plays a major role in the rest of the athletes career. Emphasizing the importance of playing at the appropriate level regardless of letter. (A/AA)

14U Referenced as USA Hockey's "train to train" phase. Physical strength and athletisim are a main point of emphasis and at these age levels players should begin to piece a plan together for what they want out of the game of hockey. (Pro, College, fun) QCR strives to assit it's players with all goals professionally and recreationally!

16 &18U Lastly the "learn to compete phase" is designed for our players to sharpen their tools as hockey players and overall athletes and shift their main focus from overall development, to competition level and playing within a structure.



When a QCR player graduates, they leave prepared to tackle all that life throws at them on and off the ice. Understanding that every player develops at a different rate at different levels is necessary. Patience and support in the process is imparitive.

Our athletes have and will continue to flourish into our fourth year as an organization. With now numerous athletes playing at the highest levels of hockey and others at the highest level of education.
