6U Mini Mite Divison Ages 6 and younger


Mini-Mites is usually a player's first experience on a team
Mini Mites play half-ice or cross-ice games

 Our Mini Mite teams consist of 10-12 players  

We typically have 6-8 mini mite teams each season
The hockey season begins in August with pre-season skates
Teams are formed & begin after Labor Day

The season ends Mid March 

Teams skate a combination of Wednesday evenings, Saturdays and Sundays
 For the Wednesdays, since we are anticipating 6 teams, 3 Mini Mite teams will share a practice every other Wednesday.   The week they are not skating on Wednesday, they will skate on Saturday and Sunday.  For those days we are trying to keep the times as consistent as possible.
2 to 4 teams will share the ice at a time, depending on the event
Teams will rotate who they share ice with every week
Teams rotate within blocks of ice time
Approximate times are 530pm to 630pm on Wednesday and morning to early-afternoon on weekends
Each ice times is 50 minutes
All players must be registered with KVHA for the season before they are placed on a team 
Siblings are automatically placed on the same teams
Beginning in September, there is a monthly ice fee that is separate from the initial registration fee $139*/month for Mini Mites
The monthly ice fee is paid September through February
There will be a separate registration to set up your monthly ice payment via sportsengine.   This is available mid August.

We have a great program at KV and hope that you consider joining our hockey family.  
Parent coaches are welcome and needed on the ice to help run the skates.  All participants must be registered with USA Hockey and complete the necessary coaching modules.
