Spring hockey brings out the mini mites

"It's bringing the families together, it's something fun to do as a family," she said. "You go in and you're watching your kids skate, they're having fun. It's exercise, number one. It's just a fun family thing to do."

Games will be held at the Scotts' Memorial Rink, 52 MacAdam Road, which was built in honor of Scott Wolter and Scott House, two former Chazy Youth Hockey players who passed away in separate car accidents more than 10 years ago.

"We have so much fun there," Fessette said of the rink. "The House and Wolter families have gone above and beyond. I can't explain enough how great they have been to all of us. They're almost like the parents of all of us."

The Chazy Youth Hockey Mini Mites teams are made up of children from various towns, which is another aspect Fessette enjoys.

"We have quite a few [players] ... from Plattsburgh. We've got some from the Mooers area, some from Altona, West Chazy. it's a good combination of pretty much the whole community," she explained.

"You're meeting more people and getting to know a larger group of people," added Fessette.

Registration is still being accepted for children who may be interested in playing on the Mini Mites team for Chazy.

For more information, or to register, visit www.chazyyouthhockey.com. Registration space is limited, so people are asked to sign up as soon as possible.

Until the start of the season however, Fessette said there is still some Mini Mite action to be had.

There will be a Mini Mite Jamboree Tournament Saturday, Feb. 27, from 2:15-6:30 p.m., at Scotts' Memorial Rink, where the winter season teams will play against the other youth hockey teams in the area, which Fessette planned along with assistant team representative Jamie Burdo.

"We've got all kinds of stuff going on," Fessette said. "We're trying to get as many people out to watch the kids play."
