This is an Intro-to-Hockey program designed to provide first year skaters (ages 4-9) an affordable opportunity to try hockey. Skating experience isn't necessary, but it's recommended that skaters attend open skate sessions prior to the start of the program.
DATES: Late October through early March (4+ months!); most Sat/Sun mornings and Wed evenings - attend when you can
$185 (+ $56 USA Hockey registration required; waived for players under 6)
+ $120 Seasonal Dues in January if your player decides to continue the program after the initial month.
Free loaner equipment is available (helmet/pads/jersey) for all new skaters to SYHA. Email us below to reserve your equipment.
When (and if) your player is interested in more ice time, we offer additional opportunities for Mites after their first season.
Returning Mites are invited to participate in preseason training sessions, called Mite Dynamics. These sessions are optional and are not included in the regular season registration. The cost for Mite Dynamics for the 2019-20 season is $95 and the sessions typically run from late-September through October.
This is another optional program offered to Sartell Mites who will be Squirts next year, or in two years (not in their first year of hockey). It is important to emphasize that the purpose of playing "full ice" games at the Mite level is NOT being done for skill development, but rather to offer a chance for Squirt Preparation - to realize the commitment to practices and games at the Squirt level as well as demonstrate the added challenge that full-ice hockey demands of younger players. Small area games, and stationed practice sessions are better suited to develop skills at this age and are our top priority.
Details on Full Ice Mites will be sent via email to eligible players in December.
