2020 Summer 3on3 League

About Summer 3on3 League

Welcome to the Darien Sportsplex Summer 3on3 Hockey League, the best place to play and have fun this spring and summer for all Mite, Squirts, Peewees, Bantams, and Midgets! The game creates a much faster paced game and gives the players more opportunities with the puck. Decisions must be made quickly forcing the athlete to think and react at an accelerated pace. Goalies are not exempt from the increased speed of the game; they may see 50 to 70 shots a game. 3 on 3 is a fun way for the athletes to explore and improve their game all on their own!

All players must be of similar age and will skate in the age group of the oldest player. The league directors have the right to move players up or down in age group to make the league and team more competitive. We anticipate a large number of players wanting to participate so register early.
