3 v 3 Cross-Ice Development League

Home / 3 v 3 Cross-Ice Development League

Mark Zarbo Hockey will again be hosting its 3 on 3 summer cross-ice league.  This league is for any AAA/AA travel player.   Divisions include Midget (2002-2005), Bantam (2006-2007), Pewee (2008-2009), Squirt (2010-2011) and Mite Division (2012, 2013, 2014).

Being a cross-ice league is meant to increase intensity, puck touches, situational repetition and keep all players part of the play their whole shift.  Players will be encouraged to be creative and experiment in games.  All divisions are non-checking.

Players sign up as an individual and are placed on a team.  Teams will consist of 9 players and 1 goalie each.  Each team will have a designated coach to encourage player creativity and experimenting with skills during the games and ensure equal shift rotation. Coaches will be correcting player mistakes after each shift with a specific focus on puck support/control, creativity/deception skills and the ability to quickly move from offense to defensive positions.

Teams will play 2 games per ice time (14 game regular season followed by a semi-final and final for 16 games total).  Each game will be 32 minutes in length with shifts being timed to 1:00 and players changing on horn to keep play intensity high and equalize shift time.

The last scheduled ice time will be the semi-finals and finals.  All league rules are listed below.  Players sign up for league as individuals and will be placed on a team.  If there are players who would like to be on the same team please state request when signing up.  All requests will be taken into account but are not guaranteed to ensure all teams are equal caliber. If your request cannot be met you will be notified prior to league starting play.

GOALIES!  Last season goalies averaged over 30 shots per game.  That is 60 shots every ice time (teams play 2 games per ice time).  Being 3 on 3 cross-ice many of these shots are scoring area chances, net drives, breakaway, 2 on 1 chances etc.  Goalies, if you are looking for a fun, challenging league with lots of shots and situational repetition, then 3 on 3 cross-ice is the best league for that.
