Q & A 8u: Why do they use blue pucks?

01/08/2014, 9:15am MST

USA Hockey uses lightweight blue pucks at the 8U level, which are approximately 2 ounces lighter than standard black pucks. The blue puck allows the younger players to use proper technique in passing, shooting and stickhandling - similar to using a smaller ball in soccer or football.
