The Blue Division consists of six teams: Team Blue, Team Sky Blue, Team Gold, Team Black, Team Teal, and Team Maroon. This group will practice together on Mondays and Wednesdays and play cross-ice scrimmages on Sundays.
Watch the GBAYHA Calendar on the website as some weeks have different times from the usual schedule.
The rosters are fluid and the coaches may make changes at any time to move players to the appropriate level or to balance the teams. All players will be re-evaluated sometime after January 1st.
Skaters may attend practices on Mondays, Wednesdays, or both.
Players will be divided by their ability into teams of 5-7 skaters. The coaches will monitor this very closely, to make sure that players are moving up during the season if they develop to the next level. Skaters will practice and play with and against skaters with like abilities.
Red Division – Top 1/3 of skaters
White Division - Next 1/3 of skaters
Blue Division – Remaining 1/3 of skaters
There is no state tournament at this level as emphasis is placed on skill development.
GBAYHA will host an end of the year Mite Tournament March 3-4, 2018 called Chaos @ Cornerstone. Parents will be asked to volunteer at this tournament if their skater is participating.
