As the mite season begins there have been several questions posed about what a half-ice mite game should look like. The ADM Mite League Guidelines document (see below) describes in detail some of the rules and guidelines that are used around the country to implement reduced ice games at both 6U and 8U. Additionally, NIHL, our Tier II League here in Illinois, has set forth some playing rules of their own that fit the needs of their league. Keep in mind, the league in which your teams play, Northwest Hockey League (NWHL) or your club’s In-House Mite Program, may have modified these rules. Clubs can use the ADM Mite League Rules to organize their own programs, run jamborees, or for tournaments if they wish.
