Spring Mini MItes 2019 with Coach Ron
I get this question all the time. Here is the best answer~ Coach Ron
Q: My child is playing in a cross-ice hockey league. The other day, his grandfather asked me why do they play cross-ice? I know it is good for kids at this age but I struggled giving him a good answer. Can you help?
A: What a great and timely question. Cross-ice hockey is an integral part of high-performance development at the 8U age level. With a new group of boys and girls being introduced to youth hockey every year, it is important that we constantly remind administrators, coaches and parents of the importance of playing cross-ice hockey at the 8U age level. Of course while the simplicity of having children play youth sports on appropriately sized playing surfaces seems sensible, it is important that we can also cite the reasons why it makes so much sense to the development of all our players at 8U:

What a way to end the fall/winter hockey season. 50 kids on one sheet of ice for our Mini Mite Jamboree! 5 games going on at once and action EVERYWHERE! Then upstairs for a big post skate party and award presentation. Great group of kids, parents and assistant coaches this season! ~ Coach Ron
