Still Have Questions?

Is Your Player a “Mite-Age Player”?

Does he/she have a birth year between 2009 & 2010 for the 2017-18 season?

All of our CAYH programs have different program  descriptions, cost and commitment levels, but we would like to familiarize the Mite Hybrid travel team to families that have qualifying players, but may not know much about the program. 

The CAYH Mite Hybrid Team is a travel team that participates in the Valley Hockey League and competes in half-ice games, per USA Hockey rules.  Valley Hockey League (VHL) Mite teams are divided into geographical areas to minimize travel and are also split up into multi-tier divisions to maximize parity.

Teams will play a 25 game schedule.  

Practices are held 2-3 evenings per week at our local Talbot Rink, and there is generally 1 game each weekend at a Valley League rink.  The season runs from September-March.   Tuition for the 2016-17 season was $1200.  The tuition for the 2017-2018 season is TBD. 

Due to popular demand, CAYH has increased the number of Mite-Hybrid travel teams over the past few years to accommodate this growing program.

For Example, The CAYH Mite-Hybrid 2016-17 PLAYER PACKAGE Included:

  • 25-Game Schedule, Plus Playoffs in the Valley League
  • Avg of 2-3 times weekly practice @ Talbot Rink
  • On Ice Skills by Power Edge Hockey
  • On Ice Goalie Skills by Bertagna Goaltending
  • Chaos Hockey On Ice Skills
  • Home & Away Jerseys with Socks (Value $150)**
  • Contribution toward End of Season Team Party
  • Contribution toward Team Tournament
  • Contribution toward Championship Team Jackets

For the 2017-18 season, each player will be receiving home/away personalized jerseys and socks that they will own and be responsible for.  This package is valued at $150.  

Jersey fittings and assignment of jersey numbers will completed at the end of June. 

So please attend the Mite Madness Free Skating and Informational Session on Wednesday, March 29th at 5:30 PM. We look forward to your player becoming a member of our 2017-2018 Mite-Hybrid Travel Team! 

** Should you have any questions regarding the Mite-Hybrid program or need additional information, please do not hesitate to contact Frank Caputo at or Jessica Cusumano at

  • Excellent and everyone has to start somewhere! For my “mite madness” it was mostly on Days Pond 1960’s the walk through back-yard to Doctors fence over to high street down the hill jump the wall and walk through days fields to pond. Funny be colder than dickens and blowing but you get so wrapped up into the fun tend to forget until your feet get too wet or cold! We used to bring a change of clothes most times so take wet off put on dry back on the pond again!

    One day I remember being there most of a day Approximately 10 minute walk from house on Washington street depending upon, route taken, how much we dillydallied to it and how deep the snow was! Dave
