      The IHWC Mite Program is the result of a commitment to our youngest group of hockey players.  It is an alignment between the "Mite Experience" and the IHWC's Mission, Vision and Values.  Our goal is to have IHWC offer the best Mite Hockey experience in the Region, a program promoting well-rounded skill development and fun for our 8U hockey players.  The IHWC Mite teams comprise the Indian Hill Mite League (IHML). We are excited to announce former NHL player Pat MacLeod (click here for bio) will be leading IHML instruction as our ADM Coordinator for the 2019-20 season.  

      VISION:  To offer a Premier Mite Hockey experience by promoting well-rounded skill development and fun for youth hockey players and their families.

      CORE VALUES:   Respect, Integrity, Teamwork, Coachability, Accountability, Determination, Courage, Humility, Sportsmanship, Transparency & High Character

      Mite IHML Season:

      The Mite season will start with taking the ice for a first practice on Tuesday, October 15, 2019 and concludes on February 28, 2020 with the hoisting of the O’Brien Cup by the IHML champions.

      IHML Season:
      FALL ADM Sessions:  Mite Skaters are invited to participate in the Fall Ice Schedule ADM's starting on October 4, Friday evening ADM sessions 6-7:20pm.
      Practices:  Mite season will start with taking the ice for a first practice on Tuesday, October 15, 2019 and conclude on February 28, 2020 with the hoisting of the O’Brien Cup by the IHML champions.
      IHML Games:  Games will begin the weekend of October 19-20. Games will be held on Saturday, Sunday or occasionally on Friday evenings

      Practice Overview:  

      The IHML will host 30-32 Mite ADM formatted practices for 70 minutes per practice. First practice to be held on Tuesday, October 15, 2019. Practice times will be at 5:10pm on Tuesday and 6:00pm on Friday.

      What Is a Typical Mite Practice?

      The first fifteen (15) minutes is spent on power skating followed by 50 minutes of skill development at rotating six stations. The players will be segmented by ability to create a competitive environment. Furthermore, the coaches will customize their station drills based on the skill level rotating to the station. 

      The goal of the ADM practices is to improve the player’s respective skating and hockey skills in small groups to maximize player engagement. And have FUN with friends!

      IHML season overview:

      The IHML will host 52-60 IHML games on Saturday mornings, Sunday afternoons and occasionally on Friday evenings at 6:00pm. Games will begin the weekend of October 19-20. 

      Team Composition Overview:

      The IHML will consist of 4-5 Mite teams with no more than 10 players.  Each team will play three to four games against other IHML teams.  The season concludes with multiple rounds of IHML playoffs and a chance to hoist the O’Brien Cup.

      Games & Tournaments:
      IHML teams will also participate in the MYHL League.  The schedule will consist of approximately 8-10+ jamborees (1/2 games in round robin format).  Most games will be played on Sunday with home game on Saturday mornings. A tournament may be an optional add for older HML players.  Tournament will provide the Mite players an opportunity to compete against the competitive Mite programs in the area.

      2018 O’Brien Cup Champs – The Redhawks
