This program is designed for boys and girls making the transition from learn-to-skate and learn-to-play hockey programs to a more team-oriented, skill-development hockey league.
The Warriors half-ice USA Hockey ADM format focuses on player’s ice awareness, skill development, and most importantly fun as they begin their journey in hockey. The focus in practice is on the fundamentals: skating, stick handling, shooting, and hockey IQ in a safe and fun environment. There are no tryouts for Mite Development. All players sign up and are evaluated at the beginning of the season before they are split into four teams.
