We are excited to announce we will be having a full ice mite hockey team starting in 2021! Formerly known as the Aston Nordiques, the Aston 1494s will serve as the new yearly full ice mite program based out of Ice Works Skating Complex in Aston, PA. Below is everything you will need to know about our new program!
Our mission is to create a program that is solely focused on the development of our young players. Our main goal is to provide a fun environment for them to learn and enjoy playing the game each time they step on the ice with us. For this program, we are providing each player with the opportunity to grow as a player, learn more about the game itself, and help make a smooth transition from Mite to Squirt for each player.
- Anyone can register for the program (2013 & Advanced 2014 Birth Year Players), regardless of their 2021-2022 season team. We will be selecting both AAA & AA Teams to be a part of our program.
- ID Clinics will determine the players for each team -
ID Skates are as follows: Feb 19, Feb 26, Mar 5 (all 6:30-7:30pm)
Ice Works Skating Complex - Rink 4 ($20 Per Slate)
- Filling out one registration form online will count towards registration for both Sping/Summer and In Season Programs.
- While we are a full ice program, we will look to add mite half/cross ice tournaments for the players as extra hockey throughout the season.
- Any late registrations can be received and a pro-rated cost will be given for what they have missed prior to their start date.
