Please Note:

At the discretion of parents, the Mite Coordinator(s) and the Hockey Development Committee or HDD, new skaters in 2nd or 3rd grade may initially start the season at younger level to allow for a more appropriately skill-matched level. If a new player shows continued improvement, a move back to their age-matched peers during the season may be considered. The recommendation for this consideration should come directly from either the player's parents/guardians or the lead Coach(es) of the appropriate levels and include approval from the other head coaches, the Hockey Development Committee (HDC), and also the player's parents or guardians.  In cases of disagreement, the HDC will have the final word on the matter. However, Mite 3 or Mite 4 players playing down at Mite 2 will need to move with their age group to the Squirt/U10 level the following season. 


Finding Schedules via the Calendar Page
