Please contact Mite Coordinator, Brad Shear, with any questions:

Check out this helpful information:

We offer four different tiers to cover kids from Pre-K to 3rd grade (between 4 and 9 years old). Practices are on Saturdays and Sundays from late October to mid-March for House Mites.  Mite Plus/U8 is an optional traveling hockey component in addition to the House Mite program.

Attendance Area: Minnesota hockey associations are organized based upon the High School attendance areas.  AVHA players must live in the Apple Valley High School attendance area or open enroll to an AVHS feeder school.  There are always exceptions to this rule.  Please verify that your home address is in the AVHS attendance area on the ISD196 website
