Mite 2, 3, 4/8U Team Payments

MVI is committed to growing our youth hockey program.  For this to happen, the board has made the decision to have our Mite 2 teams on the ice 1 night during the week in addition to weekends.  This philosophy aligns with many other associations in District 2 Hockey.  We will also encourage our Mite 2 coaches to register for a couple of jamborees’.  In the past, teams would just collect money from parents, we have eliminated that process with implementing a team payment at the Mite 2 level.  When you register, you will see that Mite 2 will now have a separate team payment from the registration fee.  Like our traveling teams, if at the end of the season, teams do not use all their budgeted team fee, money will be reimbursed to families.  Also, if a family brings in a corporate sponsor for the team, money will be reimbursed as well.

 

We offer 4 full-season co-ed Mite levels to best serve the varying ages, skills and experience of our Mite-aged participants (skaters older than 4 and younger than 9 on June 1, 2020).  We also offer an early-season introductory opportunity for newer skaters to participate called Learn to Play Hockey [LTPH] which can either dovetail right into a full season program or end after the initial 8 sessions, depending on the skater’s interest.  We think LTPH is a great option if you are new to hockey; it’s a minimal investment (time and money) vs. signing up for a full season.

Which registration option should I pick?

  • Learn to Play (new players only)

  • Mite 1 (no evaluation)

  • Mite Evaluation

Rule of Three:  Our youth hockey coaches collaborated on the following guidance for our hockey parents called the Rule of Three.  If a player’s grade + years of hockey experience is greater than (or equal to) 3 they will participate in Mite Evaluations.  Take their grade level as a number value (Pre-K & Kindergarten = 0, 1st grade = 1, 2nd grade = 2, 3rd grade = 3) and add their year(s) of hockey experience (never played = 0, played 1 year = 1, played 2 years = 2) as a number value to determine a final value.  If the final value number is less than 3, enroll them in Mite 1.  If the number is equal to or larger than 3, enroll them in Mite Evaluations. 

No 3rd graders should enroll in Mite 1, no matter their experience.

Examples for illustration:

For example, a 1st grader who has played 1 year of hockey (1 + 1) would enroll in Mite 1.  For example, a 2nd grader with 0 years of hockey (2 + 0) would enroll in Mite 1.  For example, a 2nd grader with 1 year of hockey experience would enroll in Mite Evaluations (2 + 1 = 3).  For example, a 3rd grader with 0 years of hockey (3 + 0 = 3) would enroll in Mite Evaluations.

Unless approved by special exception by the Mite Coordinator, new skaters and children who are younger than 1st Grade (or their birthdate happened since July 1, 2014) should enroll in Mite 1.  All other skaters will take part in the Mite Evaluation process and their placement will be determined by an on-ice evaluation during the third week of the season.  Mite 2, Mite 3 and Mite 4 teams will be formed after the evaluation process which we anticipate will occur between the weekend of October 26-27 & November 2-3.
