Mite Development Program

Spring and Summer 2024
[Sold Out. Please join our  WaitList.]

The goal of these programs is to provide mite hockey players with elite-level coaching in a fun, structured environment. Our programs are led by former professional-level hockey players and Breakaway Academy alumni.

On-ice training focuses on building foundational skills at each player’s individual level.  Practices are station-based, with players divided into small groups to ensure constant feedback and quality repetition.

Spring and summer sessions available.
