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 2015 or younger.
Conditioning clinics and tryouts will begin August 19th, with team practices starting September 5th. The season will run through the beginning of March.
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 three team practices per week.
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 1-2 out-of-state tournaments.
All Mite Travel teams will wear the Wilmette Jr. Trevians game uniforms. Information on game jersey fitting and purchase will be posted in July.
Players will purchase their set of home/away game socks and practice socks as part of registration.
Goalies in the Mite Travel program receive a considerable 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.
