Mite (8U)

Updated Thursday February 8, 2018 by Brian Boisson.

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.
