Re: Testing out PP system for mites

Not sure if the slingshot is the right PP for mites you should teach them the 1-3-1 power play this formation has become the go to power play system for most high level teams. Almost every NHL team is using the 1-3-1, so there must be a reason. The reason? The 1-3-1 has the ability to spread players out inside the zone, keep a player in front of the net at all times, and place shooters in key positions so they can shoot off the pass. Would love to see your team carry out the PP, what organization is your team?

Re: Testing out PP system for mites

As long as the coaches kid is on the PP, we're all set. Maybe net front or in the Bumper position. He can line him up at the dots once he gets his slap shot down.

We run the 1-3-1 once we get into the zone. We use slingshot to gain entry. We have one rocket ship of a 2014 who times it perfectly. I’ll spare you the org but will tell you we are elite.

Re: Testing out PP system for mites

I remember the good old days of mites.. dynamic zone entries, 1-3-1 power play. Support, recognition and accountability.

We had it all
Good old USA hockey

Re: Testing out PP system for mites

Agreed! It’s a travesty mite hockey has now transitioned into come drills, stations, and cross ice

Re: Testing out PP system for mites

Whats next an 8 year old checking fourth line with enforcers?

Re: Testing out PP system for mites

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.

Yes I agree. Starting at 6 years old we start running system based practices. I know USA looks down in it but I want a winning culture

Re: Testing out PP system for mites

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.

Everyone knows the USA hockey ADM model and cross ice was developed for town hockey if you want your mite to be a D1 prospect at squirts and a 1st round NHL draft prospect at peewees you definitely need to be running offensive and defensive systems on full ice sheets at mites.

We had our little superstar do LTP on a full sheet, and now that he's a first year mite, we're also incorporating HIIT/conditioning, strength training and other off ice stuff. Really gonna pay off when he gets that exceptional status from the CHL in a few years.

Re: Testing out PP system for mites

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.
