Agreed! It’s a travesty mite hockey has now transitioned into come drills, stations, and cross ice
Whats next an 8 year old checking fourth line with enforcers?
We have a 3rd line that has just rough kids. Not calling them a checking line but they are leased skilled kids that I train to be strong. When they are on the ice we run an aggressive
2-2-1 FC system where we get 2 guys on puck with 2 guys in close support. 1 dman play it safe but usually doesn’t matter because they just create turnover after turnover.
Cross ice for Mites is the only way to go. Absolutely a waste of a full sheet of ice to put a Mite game out there. It would be similar to putting a college game on an entire football field sized sheet. It would be better to run three / four games at the same time on cross ice and let the kids play for three hours instead of wasting a sheet on 10 skaters.
Forget about the PP systems at mite. Guys their is no way a mite is working on PP. Its unfortunate that grown adults would let a mite team run systems. This needs to be reported to the EHF and the E9 directors.
