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.
Founded in 1970, the Acton-Boxboro Youth Hockey Association serves boys and girls in the towns of Acton, Boxboro, Harvard, and Bolton Massachusetts. Our home rink is the Nashoba Valley Olympia on Route 111 in Boxboro (directions). Our teams play in the Valley League, and our girls team play in the Middlesex Yankee Conference.
We have 17 teams from the Mite to Midget level, Girls team combined with Concord Carlisle Youth Hockey, and a learn to skate program with six intramural Mosquito teams. We have a long, proud heritage. Our program is based upon the principle of making our children's hockey experience as enjoyable as possible, with a strong emphasis on skating and skills development and having fun with hockey. Some of our players have graduated to the National Hockey League, and others have played for their high school and college teams.
