Great Way to Improve Your Skills!
The WHC will again offer two programs designed to give our Minor Mite and Mite-aged House League players the opportunity for additional ice time, instruction, and “play time”.
These programs will be modified from previous years. In previous years these programs would play 6-8 full-ice games with neighboring communities in addition to weekly skills sessions. While there is a possibility this can occur later in the season, we will instead offer more of a skills based program along with small area games on the studio rink Fridays 6:25p at Centennial in Wilmette. These 3 on 3 sessions will feature lots of puck touches, constant skating, and TONS of fun.
The programs will begin after Thanksgiving and conclude by March 1st.
Minor Mite Development Program (MMDP) is for children born in 2014 and 2015. The program will have weekly skills sessions on Wednesdays at Watts Ice Center 5:30pm conducted by our professional staff. These sessions will follow the American Development Model (ADM) concept of station-based training with a focus on maximizing each skater's repetitions and core skill development. These Wednesday sessions will run the length of the Watts season from early December-end of February.
In addition to these weekly skills sessions, we will offer six “3 on 3” sessions every other week to be held on the Wilmette Studio rink Fridays at 6:25pm. As other ice becomes available we will augment the schedule.
Mite House Plus is for children born in 2012 & 2013. Mite House Plus will be similar to MMDP except Skills Sessions will be Wednesdays at 6:45p @ Watts. House Plus program will also feature six 3 on 3 sessions Fridays 6:25pm at Wilmette.
We expect both programs to offer approximately 20 on-ice sessions.
We do not expect that any of these sessions will conflict with regularly scheduled House League activities.
If your child is eager for additional ice time and more hockey, this is a great option.
The season fee is $495. All children must be registered before the first on ice session.
