Registration for the Newburyport Youth Hockey League's Mite Instructional Program is now open for the upcoming 2019-2020 season. This program begins in September so register now!
Mite Instructional Hockey is geared towards 1st time players that are interested in learning the sport of hockey and continuing to develop their skating and hockey skills. This program is designed for girls and boys ages 5-8 (as of 12/31/19). This is a great introduction to hockey for players and families and is super convenient. All practices and games are located at the Graf Rink here in Newburyport.
Players will have two dedicated 50 minute practices each week and one cross ice game on Saturday afternoons. All Instructional players will also have the option to skate on Sunday mornings with the learn to skate group to continue to work on their skating skills. This program offers up to 4 hours of skating each week - by far the best deal for Instructional Hockey Programs in our area!
If you have questions or concerns about the program please feel free to reach out to Coach Dick Tierney at (978) 465-0128. Coach Tierney has helped to run the NYHL Mite Instructional Program for over 30 years!
For additional information you can also reach out to our NYHL Mite Instructional Rep., Mike Bergeron, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We all look forward to seeing you at the rink this fall!
