We just had our meeting with our USA rep last Thursday and he went over all the important aspects of the ADM. He then went out on the ice with us and the kids to over see us to make sure we were making the most of it. It was great to see the kids skating and having fun.
My suggestions would be group the kids together by ability, but do not let the parents know that you are doing this. If you do be prepared to have a bunch of parents comming up to you and asking why jr isn't skating with the better kids.
Also having a lot of coaches out is good, however make sure they are paying attention to the kids and teaching them the correct things out there. We had 20 or more out there and I had to leave my drill station to go and teach kids at other drill stations because the coach wasn't showing them what they had to do (he was telling, but not showing).
The ADM is looking better and better to me and I grew up doing full ice drills and standing in line for long periods of time.
