Mighty Mites is the pre-league step in your young athlete's development. This is a teaching program designed to further develop the Admirals' younger mites toward league play. Mighty Mites is an introductory team and coaching environment for beginning young Mites.
Mighty Mites average a practice, a game, and are invited to Skills & Drills and Goaltending clinic each week throughout the fall, winter and spring sessions. Running time games are played on full ice with players introduced to referees, infractions and penalties.
Mighty Mites may accept players at any time throughout the session. In some cases, participating fall Mighty Mites may be added to league teams prior to the end of the session. Fall and winter sessions lead to spring league teams. The spring session leads to fall league teams.
All players that register will be placed on a team. These are teaching teams and there are no cuts. Mighty Mites does accept players "in session" based on ability and space per team. It is the intent to keep these teams small. In the case of excess registrations every effort will be made to field additional teams. If this is not possible, online registration date will determine eligibility.
This very successful program assists our beginning hockey players to develop their skills quickly against similar age, size and ability players. Sessions will consist of one practice and one game per week. Teams will be drafted in the first weekend of the session, with team practices being conducted the second weekend of the session. On-the-ice coaches will assist players with positioning and rules during games and will double as referees. Players will skate in running time periods and will change on the horn or stoppage of play. Approximate age level 5 - 8 years old and the skater must have either passed the Center Ice Skating Academy Beta 1 or Pre-Hockey program in order to sign up for Mighty Mites.
