Next time you are watching NHL hockey on TV, make note of just how fast the game moves. No player has the puck for more than a second until someone's on him. Listen the the post game interviews. In the tough games, they all talk about TIME and SPACE, and how little of either there is in the game.
Now think about Mite hockey. Players are tiny, the ice is HUGE! Everyone has so much time and space!
Hockey is the only major sport in which the playing surface has not been adjusted for the youth game. That is changing.
Check out this video put out by USA Hockey about why mites should play on the smaller surface.

If you need to order additional jerseys, or did not order through the registration process, you can use this link to order new AB jerseys. If you have ordered on the registrtaion form, DO NOT reorder on this form, you will have a duplicate order, and will be charged twice.
As a reminder, Jersey numbers are assigned by the program in order to allow jerseys to be worn over multiple seasons, and avoid number conflicts on a team. You can make a number request, but there is no guarantee that number will be available.
