Mite and 8U parents -
Fargo Youth Hockey has opened up registration for Mite/8U March Madness. This two-week session will introduce/re-introduce players to full ice games and the rules of hockey prior to playing full ice games at Squirts or 10U next year. Teams will be as equally competitive as possible. This program will be separate from any current in-house teams or programs and all games will be in Fargo.
Registration will be open to the following players before February, 25, 2020
All Mite/8U players moving up to Squirts/10U next year (born between July 1, 2010 to June 30, 2011)
Players must be currently registered with FYHA and currently on a Mite or 8U team roster for the current 2019-2020 season
Registration will be limited to the first 104 skaters and 16 goalies.
After February 24, 2020, Registration will be extended to players born between July 1, 2010 to June 30, 2012.
If not all spots are filled with players moving to Squirts/10U during the first phase of registration, the program will be opened up to all Mite/8U players on February 25, 2020. All remaining roster spots will be assigned on a first come, first served basis.
This program will be ran by Mite and 8U Level Director & Coordinators with the help of volunteer coaches. The program director and coordinators will organize the team rosters and coaching staff for each team. There will be no player/team requests granted but we will do our best to accommodate special circumstances.

8 Teams - 6 boys and 2 girls
Black Division - 4 boys teams / Blue Division - 2 boys teams/2 girls teams
Girls teams may not be exclusively girls if we don't get enough girls registered but we will shoot for all girls teams. Girls team will play against boys and girls.
4- one-hour week night practices on Tuesdays and Thursdays over the 2 week period for each team.
Practice sessions will be focused on the rules of the game, positioning, and team play (i.e. controlled scrimmages and full ice drills with 2 teams on the ice each practice.)
4 full-ice games over the two weekends for each team (Three 15-minute periods) with officials on Saturdays & Sundays.
