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.

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.
