Unfortunately our intended alliance with Coon Rapids Youth Hockey Association did not receive approval from District 10. However, we have been able to secure a confirmed Mite co-op agreement with Armstrong Cooper Youth Hockey Association again this year. This agreement does come with the benefit of providing our players and families with some consistency and a familiar and outstanding environment for player development. Player families should do the following to participate in the NMYHA and ACYHA co-op program.
Mite skaters will only be responsible for DIBS (Volunteer Hours) and fundraising with North Metro.
Do not hesitate to contact the Mite Director (email@example.com) with any questions!
For all first year mite players, please contact the Registration Director (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Mite Director (email@example.com) to request the "First Year Skater Discount Code" prior to registering with North Metro.
If this is your child's first year playing Mite hockey and you live within the association boundaries you qualify for a $350 first year discount!
Contact the Registration Director at the email below for discount information prior to registering with North Metro:
