MITE A Division, Option 1 & 2

The Mite A Half Ice Division allows experienced players the opportunity to play on half-ice, instead of cross-ice, thus taking the next step in learning the game. The half-ice format encourages improved open ice play while providing players the opportunity to further develop new skills during live game play. Standard sized goals are used.

Mite B, Mite C & Mite House Divisions

Mite B, C and House teams play competitive Cross-Ice 4-on-4 hockey throughout the seasons using Chelsea Piers Connecticut's 3-foot high customized borders, mini goals, painted center ice line and painted creases. Our one-of-a-kind borders create three equal size, age-appropriate playing surfaces. Chelsea Pier's cross-ice hockey is an ideal way for young players to develop their skills by playing in small spaces. Players get several touches on the puck and are engaged in the game from start to finish, while still feeling like they are playing in a competitive and "real" hockey game. Our organized, structured play is ideal for the whole family to watch and enjoy Mite Hockey at its finest.
