LBYH Launches New Rookie Mite Program!
by posted 03/13/2014
LBYH is excited to announce the launch of the Rookie Mite program.  The Rookie Mite teams will participate in the Middlesex Cross Ice Hockey League ( in West Newton next season.  After successfully piloting the program this season with the Mite U7 LBYH is expanding it to include all Mite ages with the number of teams we place in the league determined by the level of interest.  
The Rookie Mite program is a shorter season with a later start and is offered at a lower cost than our traditional mite travel program.  There is less travel and more focus on skills development with a game format designed to maximize participation.  The program will consist of the following:
  • 18 game regular season schedule from late October through mid March
  • One skills-based practice per week at either Hayden or the Edge
  • 3 vs 3 (plus goalie) games played on a 1/4 ice sheet with boards
  • On-ice coaches acting as referees
  • Sunday afternoon games at the Fessenden rink in West Newton (does not conflict with LBYH In-House program)
  • 7 to 10 players per team
We recommend Rookie Mite players have at least one year of LBYH In-House or comparable hockey experience.
