Mite and 8U Program Information

Mite and 8U Program Overview

The Mite program continues to be the AHYHA’S largest and fastest growing program. Our association is very committed to our Mite program which serves to foster skill development, healthy competition, sportsmanship, and team play.

The Mite program mission is to establish a Tradition of Excellence; from an early age. The Mite program will offer four levels of play A through D. While the focus will be on player skill development, there will be games played against other associations in our district, close to home.

After registration, follow Mite program updates on the AHYHA Mites Team page. Mite and 8U players will be evaluated using the Hockey Education Program (HEP). While the HEP program is not a tryout, results from it will be used to balance teams and/or place players at an appropriate level to maximize their skill development.
