This weekend, the Mamaroneck Youth Hockey Association (MYHA) sent seven hockey teams (all ages from 6-14) to the New England Sports Center in
Marlborough, MA to compete in the annual March Classic Hockey Tournament.
The tournament lasted three days and we played teams from as close as Pelham to as far as Maine.
MYHA sent two Mite Division teams (ages 8 and under) – the Tigers and
the Cubs; two Squirt division teams (ages 9 and 10) – the Tigers and
Cubs; two Pee Wee division teams (ages 11 & 12) – also the Tigers and Cubs; and one Bantam division team (ages 13 & 14).
The teams have kids from all four of the Mamaroneck School District elementary schools — and they kicked butt in the tournament!
Of the seven teams we sent, three came in first place overall: Mite Tigers beat Pelham; Squirt Tigers beat Westchester Mariners; and Pee Wee Tigers beat the Vitos Rangers. Many of the teams are coached by local elementary school dads.
