We don't teach positions on our mite minor team yet. It's really just for the faceoffs that they get into position, and it changes with every faceoff. They take turns being in goal too, in just their regular gear. Instead of positions, their coach just teaches them generally how to be on the ice - like how to battle for a puck in the corner, or, don't pass the puck in front of your own goal, send it up the boards instead - that sort of stuff.

At this age, you really just want to make it as fun as possible while sneakily teaching them skill building and keeping them moving.
