Welcome to the 2019 Winter Silver Mite Evaluation Registration for Silver Mites with the Chicago Hawks Hockey Club!
Silver Mites is specifically designed for 5, 6 and 7-year-olds (2011-2013 birth years) that are new to hockey and usually have completed a Learn to Skate program or Learn to Play program. They are average skaters that may possess the skill to play at a higher level, but may not be able to understand all the rules and concepts or have the maturity for competition in a game setting.
This level will not focus on how to run a power play or working on different line combinations. Instead, it will concentrate on skill development. Players will receive jerseys. Games will be cross ice and the practice format will be USA Hockey ADM format with the goal in mind of developing these players to move to the next level. All practices will be run by the Chicago Hawks Hockey Directors with parent helpers assisting both on and off the ice.
We plan to have Six Silver Mite teams with limited rosters that will practice together on Thursday's early evenings and Saturday early afternoons and play half ice games on select Saturday's and Sunday mornings. Evaluations are FREE for this session and the program itself costs $725 for the winter session which runs from January and ends in March. Players selected for the program will be directed to register after evaluations to pay their fees.
Evaluations: (Both days are mandatory)
Thursday 1/10/2019 - 4:30-5:30pm
Saturday 1/12/2019 - 11:50am-12:40pm
* We will form the teams after Saturday's evaluation and have practice games on Sunday morning 1/13/2019.
If we see any 7 (2011 birth years) year olds possessing the skill to move up into the in house league we will notify them during evaluations and help with the transition. Our goal is to find the right level for all players and to have similar skill level players competing and training with one another.
8 year olds:
For 8 year olds we will be placing them in our in-house league. A new session is starting with evaluations on Saturday, January 12 at 8:00am for Mites. Again this is only for the 8 year olds. For more in-house information go to www.dariensportsplex.com and register on their website as you cannot register for the in house league on the Chicago Hawks web site.
USA Hockey Registration:
All players must be registered before they will be permitted to take the ice and registrations will be taken online only. Please register early - Each Player must register first with USA Hockey and then return to this Registration Session to sign up for the 2019 Winter program.
