THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!!
If you still have hockey equipment that belongs to PCYH please make arrangements to return it by contacting Lara @ 651-210-2735. Thank you.
Recent injuries, complaints and damage to property require that we review the rules of the shooting station at the west end of the hockey arena. The space was allotted to youth hockey as a tool to promote skill development, exercise and training on the basis that we (all of the members of the association) maintain the equipment and supervise the area. The space remains the property of the Civic Center and we could lose access to it if we continue to allow it to be used as a jungle gym with sticks. Please review the rules and explain them to your athlete(s). Also, don't hesitate to remind someone of the rules if/when you see them in violation.
As of the new year (Jan 1, 2016), PCYH board is prepared to discipline athletes who refuse to comply with the rules. Restriction from the area tied with a loss of game eligibility (they won't be allowed to play in a game) are being considered as consquences.
The shooting area is a great thing and is mostly used for it's intended purpose. We just need to tighten things up to maintain the equipment and avoid future injury to our kids.
SHOOTING AREA RULES
1) Helmets and gloves must be worn at all times
2) Shooting pucks in the caged area only
3) No more than two players in the cage at one time
4) No playing hockey in this area during hockey games (youth or High School)
5) Pucks are not allowed outside the caged area
Failure to follow these rules may result in loss of playing time.
Thank you for your immediate attention to these rules.
The PCYH Board will begin meeting every third Monday at the Pine City Country Club at 7pm. We will make our best effort to keep this schedule, but it is subject to change and those changes will be posted on the website homepage as they occur.
Along with the stable meeting dates we will be posting all agendas, meeting minutes, treasurer and gambling reports on the Board page.
We want to make meetings and minutes accessible to all members. We appreciate your input and invite you to come to the meetings.
