The Developmental Mites will typically play a few games locally, but the primary focus of Developmental Mites is skating and skills development. Fun scrimmages and games are incorporated into the regular practice sessions.


Developmental Mites are encouraged to purchase the less expensive Mites uniform package. Younger siblings are welcome to wear past uniforms.

Additional Costs

Participants will need to purchase skates, helmets, pants and pads separately. North Park helmets are white, ideally with a black cage, but any helmet color is welcome in the Developmental Mites. All children are required to wear neck guards.
