Bantam/High School Membership Program
The Minnesota Advancement Program is the Elite division within FHIT Hockey. The MAP was created for individuals who want to compete alongside elite players and be challenged by elite coaches. The MAP develops hockey players during the 8 months outside of the High School season and mentors, scouts and recruits players during the 4 months of the High School season. For 14 years, the MAP has worked tirelessly to offer everything a player needs to develop.
*To be eligible for the Bantam membership you must have played as a 1st or 2nd year bantam in the 2019 - 2020 hockey season. If you are still a PEEWEE please check out our MAP Futures Membership.
