LAKELAND ARENA SPRING HOCKEY: MINI MITE AND MITE
This year we are offering a fun recreational hockey program for the mini mites. Participants will be placed on teams by their ability with approximately 10 on a team . We will be playing 4 on 4 or 3 on 3 depending on how many players the teams have on them. Each team will have to supply a goalie, players will need to take turns. (Goalie equipment is provided.) There will be two games going on at the same time. We will utilize two referees, one for each game. The one game clock will be used for both games. The purpose of this program is for the kids to have fun and play games. There are no standings or statistics kept. Score will not be kept. Players should sign-up based on the division they will play for the 21-22 season. This will be a short fun season that the children and parents can enjoy. Price includes 10 games, scorekeeper, one referee per game and a jersey.
The spring youth program is for experienced players ages 7-8. The spring season is one practice and 10 games. Players should possess basic skills because the league itself does not include instruction. Full approved hockey equipment is required. A jersey, scorekeeper and referees will be provided for all spring league play. There are no standings or statistics kept. Players should sign-up based on the division they will play for the 2021-2022 season, see the chart below to determine your division.
