Mites & Mighty Mites Winter Classic 2023

The England National Team Programme (ENTP) are delighted to confirm details of a Winter Classic Mites & Mighty Mites training day at iceSheffield on 30 December 2023.

Mighty Mites, since being introduced several years ago,  has always been a huge success with showing our young new players what it is like to experience an ENTP training day and games at iceSheffield, for those under eight years of age.

Last season we introduced the Mites, and this was a roaring success.

We have decided to have a Winter Classic and create two events which will be on a first come, first served basis.

  • Mites – Players born  2013 & 2014 | 36 players & 8 Netminders | Must have minimum two years playing experience
  • Mighty Mites – Players born 2015 & 2016 | 36 players & 8 Netminders | Must have minimum 18 months playing experience

PLEASE NOTE: All players must be competent at skating.

We are finalising the price  (approximately £110-120),  which we are aiming to include a specially-designed winter classic shirt, meals, snacks and games, as well as training with current England national team coaches who will be looking for future stars for our national programmes.

These events will be opened via Team App at 6pm on Tuesday 5 December, and places will be confirmed prior to payment being made.
