View 117: Mighty Mites

I have spent the last three days photographing the 2010 Mite Meltdown ice hockey tournament which was held at the Greater Baldwinsville Ice Arena (GBIA).  Mites are boys and girls aged 8 years old and younger.  I was very surprised at the ability of these kids.  Some where better than others but all gave it their best.  It was a lot of fun to watch and photograph.

Here’s the link to the tournament galleries: 2010 Mite Meltdown Photo Galleries

A player from one of the Mite B teams I photographed over the weekend.  The boards in a hockey rink are 42 inches (1.07 meters) in height to give you an idea of the size of this player.

Pucks are blue for this age division.  They are lighter in weight and seem to bounce like a superball at times.  Some of the kids could really launch them.
