The Nashville Mavericks Mite Hockey Program focuses on developing and challenging players to get out of their comfort zone each and every practice. Key goals are to help improve player's passion and confidence in game situations. Research has shown the first speed window for athletes is from 6-8 years old, and that a good practice allows players to touch the puck on a regular basis, meaning 1 good practice can equal 12 games played. It is important for drills to allow each and every player to get the same touches, which is a foundation of the Nashville Mavericks Mite Hockey Program. This model helps the more advanced player develop at their pace, as well as players who have not played as long. The focus of the Nashville Mavericks Mite Hockey Program is the development of each and every player, as well as building confidence and skill at this early age.
