House Cross Ice 3-on-3 Mite League
This new program that is based on USA Hockey's Cross Ice Program and will replace the Mite full-ice House Program. It is open to both boys and girls ages 6-8 who can demonstrate a level of skating ability and hockey knowledge in line with IntroHockey 102 which is detailed above. Boys and girls who wish to supplement the Cross Ice 3-on-3 program with a limited full ice "travel-like" program will be eligible to participate in the Mite Select program. Cross Ice 3-on-3 participation is a requirement for Mite Select eligibility. Program will start in October and end in March.
The Connecticut RiverHawks Hockey Club plans on offering additional, limited schedule, travel-like teams to Cross Ice 3-on3 and House League participants at ALL levels depending on the number of children enrolled and the level of interest. These teams will involve an additional fee and, if offered, will be determined at the end of registration. Historically, these teams play approximately 20 full-ice games along with supplemental practices. Select is open to all boys and girls that participate in our Cross Ice 3-on-3 and House League Programs.
In general, participants have skated Travel, Select or has at least one year of House experience. Player should be able to skate backwards, do forward crossovers and be able to do a hockey stop. Typically, the team practices two nights a week and has one home and one away game each weekend. In addition, the team will compete in three tournaments. The Connecticut RiverHawks Hockey Club plans on having both A and B Travel Teams at ALL age levels with additional C teams depending on interest. Travel hockey is competitive hockey and is a commitment by both the child and his/her parents or guardian. Travel is open to all boys and girls.
