Skate 2x per week (Wednesdays & Sundays)
Participation in I-275 Development League (games on Sundays)
Focus on FUN and skill development.
Our programs follow the ADM so 6U and 8U teams play cross ice games. These teams also participate in the I-275 league. The intent of the I-275 League is to give Mite and Mini-Mite age players an opportunity to play within their own age group and skill level in an environment that stresses fun, learning, sportsmanship, and team play with minimum emphasis on wins and losses. The League recognizes that some associations may have a limited number of teams and this is an opportunity for those players to engage in game play with minimal drive time. The I-275 League was established to enhance these objectives and give greater game variety.
A typical season includes 2x skates per week, with practice beginning after Labor Day weekend in September. Practices take place for about the first month or so, with league games beginning in October. With the season going through Late Feb./ Early March.
***8U Mites have the options to play in Jamborree and Tournaments if they wish to do so. These are above and beyond your player fees, the cost would be spilt between those choosing to attend.
