Mite Development Program

2023 Mite Development Program


Program Information and Online Registration
NOW AVAILABLE 


Program Overview


Join the xHPTF year-round Mite Developmental Program (MDP)! The mite level is where the foundational skills of a hockey player are instilled and developed, making it a pivotal time in a young player’s development. We have created a program that allows these young players to get professional training all year long or during specific times of year.

NOTE: If your player is 6 years old, must contact xHPTF to discuss if this is the correct program for your child. Program is designed for 7-9 year olds.

Training Overview


The focus of the program will be on skill development, game concepts, and 3on3 games. 

  • Skill Development: Edges, Skating mechanics, Transitional skating, Backwards, Crossovers
  • Overspeed and Quick feet skating drills
  • Game situations and concepts- learn how to utilize skating and puck skills in a game setting. It's crucial for young hockey players to learn how to play with and without the puck.
  • Small area games and 3v3 Scrimmages

Players will train for two hours at xHPTF during each session. Seasonal groups (18 max players) will spend an hour on-ice working on basic hockey fundamentals, as well as an hour in our off-ice training facility to continue working on their basic skills (shooting, puckhandling, skating form).
