Friday Night 8U Game Night

By XIC Hockey 10/03/2019, 2:00pm EDT

Hello 8U Mini Checkers Families,


We hope everyone is having a great week and looking forward to Game Night tomorrow night from 6:00 to 7:00 PM on the XIC Train Rink. Please see a couple of items below as we prepare for tomorrow:


Game Matchups

Zone A: Eagles (White) vs. Hounds (Red)

Zone B: Knights (White) vs. Hornets (Red)

Zone C: Panthers (White) vs. 49ers (Red)



It is our goal for every player to try playing goalie at least one time while they are in the 8U program at XIC. This not only provides some variation for the practice/game experience but also affords players to see if they want to play goalie in the future. That said, we will provide goalie equipment for our 8U players during game night. We would love for there to be a goalie for every team so please talk to your player and see if they are interested in trying goalie for one night this season.


We look forward to seeing all of you tomorrow night for Friday Night Mites! Let us know if you have any questions.
