JLMC: Sutton Sting ‘Little League’ faces off next month – now open for entries!
September 27, 2019
On Saturday 12th October Sutton Sting will be hosting the first “little league” session of the 2019/20 season at Lammas Leisure Centre, Sutton-in-Ashfield.
The session is open to under 9s and under 11s from any club and so will give everyone a great opportunity to gain additional ice time and meet new friends through hockey.
Initial plans are:
- 2:00pm: arrival, sign in and team sorting.
- 2:30pm: Start on ice
- Each team will have a maximum of 10 players – 2 lines of 5
- There will be a maximum of 6 teams but the format of the tournament will be decided once the final numbers have been confirmed – 24 hours before the tournament starts.
- Each game will be 18 minutes in length with changes on the buzzer every 90 seconds – meaning each player will get 6 shifts per game.
- There will be a minimum of 3 games per team.
- We will aim to get a mixture of ages, ability and home clubs across all teams.
- Please ensure that you only sign up if you are attending this is important to ensure that we can sort out the teams prior to the event and ensure everything runs smoothly.
The cost of the session is £12 / player and online payment is required to confirm your spot. Payment for the session can be found on the ticketing section of this event.
For insurance purposes, a one off registration is required with a fee of £15. This registration will cover you for all our little league events throughout the 19/20 season – we expect there to be a minimum of 5 events, dates to be confirmed.
Llamas Leisure Centre is the perfect place for little league as the smaller ice surface is great for the younger hockey players development… playing in smaller spaces puts greater emphasis on players using their entire skill set and encourages them to think and react quicker than on a full ice pad.
