The AHA Skills Progression Book focuses on on-ice aides for coaches to understand the proper skills progression for the various levels and plan practices and small games to aide in player development.  We would encourage you to visit the USA Hockey.com web site (hot linked on AHA site) and look under Coaching materials/Practice plans.  There is a complete listing of practice plans & demos for each age level.  It is a great resource to make the most of your practice ice.  Also please look at the AHA Small Area Games book.
