Sunday, September 25th marked the first day of games for Mite Hockey in NIHL in 3 years and it couldn’t have gone better. Sixteen (16) half-ice tiering round games were played at 3 locations; All Seasons Ice Rinks (Naperville), Center Ice of DuPage (Glen Ellyn), and Addison Ice Arena (Addison). The Jamboree format allowed each team to get two of their six tiering round games completed. Two more weekends of games will follow in October prior to seeding teams for the regular season.
The Bronze division games were hosted at All Seasons Ice Rink, Center Ice of DuPage hosted the Silver Division and Addison Ice Arena played host to the Gold Division. In all, 16 teams participated in Sunday’s Jamboree. The half-ice games consisted of 3 fifteen minute running-time periods with referees. Parents and spectators are encouraged to tweet about the NIHL Jamborees by using the hashtag #NIHLJamboree. The reports have been positive, the kids had fun, and there were some very competitive games.
