Mites (Newcastle Village Minor Hockey Association)

Welcome to the Newcastle Stars Mites program.

The NVMHA Mites program is designed to ensure the players are all having fun while learning to play the great game of hockey. We start off by focusing on the basics of skating, starting right from the very beginning stages of simply just being comfortable in their equipment. The program progressively moves forward to skating drills . The drills are designed to make sure that the players are constantly moving and most importantly having fun!

Half way through the season we incorporate stick handling drills and games to help with the players progress.

All players and parents are encouraged to have fun and support their team mates throughout the season!

We look forward to seeing you at the rink!
