The goal of the Wilmette Jr. Trevians Mite Travel program is for young hockey players to develop a strong foundation of skills and love for the game so they play for a lifetime. Our Mite Travel program is for players who have played Mite House hockey and are now looking for increased ice time, additional coaching and full ice games against clubs from around the area.
The Mite Travel program is intended for youth ages 6 to 8 years. Players must be born in 2013 or younger.
Conditioning clinics and tryouts will begin in mid- to late-August, with team practices starting in the beginning of September. The season will run through the end of February.
Practices are held at Centennial Ice Rink in Wilmette or North Shore Ice Arena in Northbrook.
Home games are at Centennial and North Shore, with away games in surrounding communities (typically not more than 30-60 minutes away).
Each team will have two team practices per week and one skills sessions.
Teams compete in the Chicago United Hockey League (CUHL), which consists of 35 travel organizations throughout the Chicagoland area. Mite teams will also participate in one local tournament at Thanksgiving and one out-of-state tournament, usually in January.
All Mite Travel teams will wear the Wilmette Jr. Trevians game uniforms. For the 2021/2022 season, the club will provide home and away jerseys and game socks as part of the registration costs. We are also evaluating whether Mite Travel teams will wear pant shell covers. If so, they will be provided as part of the registration fee as well.
Fittings for jerseys will be conducted throughout July.
Goalies in the Mite Travel program receive a $2,000 discount on fees as compared to skaters.
Goalies will participate in weekly goalie clinics along with all our other goalies on travel teams.
Your team manager maintains a team fund to cover tournament expenses for the team, coach and any other additional expenses the team manager/coach may anticipate. At the start of the season, each family will be asked for a deposit to get that account started. The amount varies by team, but is typically $150-$400.
