New this season we are switching to a 3 on 3 cross ice game! The reason for the change is to involve more players in Mini 1 on 1 while producing a more entertaining competition.
All MA Districts will host Squirt, Pee Wee, Girls U10 & Girls U12 Mini 1 on 1 competitions to nominate one team at each age division to advance to TD Garden Finals in October or November 2015.
TD Garden finals in fall 2015 will be shown on NESN during 2015-16 season.

Play down bracket formula used until one team remains in each of four age classifications.
