The RWB Mite Program is for skaters at the 6U/8U level. The RWB Director and Co-Director coordinate the program which stresses the learning of fundamental skills of skating and puck handling with a special emphasis on ABCs (Agility, Balance and Coordination). The program consists of one ADM practice on Monday evening with six rotating stations with players grouped by ability, and Friday “game nights” of 4v4 cross-ice games w/ goalies (no scores or stats are kept) with simple rule enforcement. In order to facilitate a smoother entry into the demands of youth hockey, the master scheduler shall try to “fix” the RWB times and meeting places to be about the same each week. Other skills sessions will be offered on a bi-weekly basis, usually on Sunday mornings. The emphasis is on learning hockey skills, having fun, and developing a rudimentary understanding of game concepts such as puck support, moving to space, stick-on-stick and net-side positioning.
The RWB program will offer participants the opportunity to participate in a home cross-ice jamboree on January 19th and several local away jamborees for the fun of tournament experience and to help develop competitive play.
