As of the 2017-18 season Massachusetts Hockey and USA Hockey will be moving to “Age Appropriate”(Half Ice or Cross Ice) playing surfaces for all Mite Games.
Mite (Cross-Ice) – 25 Game Schedule
- Teams will play a 25 Half-Ice Game Regular Season Game Schedule plus Half–Ice Playoffs. All Mite Teams will play Half-Ice games with a true board divider system, and 1 On-ice official that will keep score of each game.
- Similar to all other age levels in the VHL, Mite Half-Ice Teams will be moved up or down throughout the season in order to maximize parity and offer the most competitive games possible for all league members.
- All teams will qualify for playoffs, which will be held in mid-March.
