The WHC will again offer two programs designed to give our Mite-aged House League players the opportunity for additional ice time, instruction, and game time.
MMDP (Minor Mite Development Program) is for those children born in 2013. The program will have weekly skills sessions on Tuesdays at Watts Ice Center 5:30pm conducted by our professional staff. These sessions will follow the American Development Model (ADM) concept of station-based training with a focus on maximizing each skater's repetitions and core skill development. In addition to the skills sessions each team will have 3-4 team practices and six full ice games with surrounding programs (Skokie, Wilmette, Northbrook Glenview etc.) All games within 25 minutes.
Mite House Plus is for children born in 2011 and 2012.
Mite House Plus will be similar to MMDP except Skills Sessions will be Wednesdays at 5:30p @ Watts. House Plus teams will play eight full ice games with surrounding programs.
Both programs will be scheduled around House League games. If you feel your child would enjoy and benefit from hockey opportunities, these programs are a great idea.
There will be an evaluation for both programs on Monday, December 2nd @ Winnetka:
House Plus 6:05-6:45
The season fee is $550. All children must be registered before the evaluation.

We are excited to once again offer a House Select program at both the Squirt (2009/2010) and Pee Wee (2007/2008) levels.
The purpose of the House Select program is to provide House League skaters the opportunity for additional development through Skill sessions, team practices, and games.
The teams will have either team practice or skills sessions in alternating weeks on Tuesdays. Skills will be 6:45p @ Watts, and team practices will be 6:50p @ Winnetka. Skills sessions will be led by our professional staff and team practices by the coach of the team. We will play 10-12 games with surrounding House select teams starting in mid-December and concluding around March 1st. Our focus will be to improve each player's individual skills and understanding of team concepts. This is a great opportunity for the advanced House player to benefit from more ice time. We expect the players to have 25-30 hours of ice time in total.
Tryouts will be held on Tuesday, December 3rd at Watts Ice Center:
Pee Wees 6:45p
All must attend the tryout. We welcome goalies on both teams.
The teams will consist of apprx. 15 players. Any player not selected will be given a full refund or permitted to attend skills & practices at a reduced fee. All players must register and pay in full prior to tryouts.
