At the end of each season PCYH offers Step-ups. Step-ups are an opportunity for kids moving up to the next level for the upcoming season (2017-18) to skate with the kids they will be skating with next year. They will work on skills that are needed at the next level as well.
example: If your player is a 3rd grader this year and playing mites, they will be a Squirt next season, therefore they will go to the Squirt step-ups. If your skater was a first year Squirt this season they would still go to the Squirt step-ups again this year.
This is a great opportunity for all players at all levels.
Please check the schedule for the dates and times of the step-ups.

MERRY CHRISTMAS to ALL!!
Game schedules are posted below for each individual District 10 team.
Mite team rosters have been UPDATED and posted on the Mite page of the website. PCYH has experienced an increase in registrations in the past week and that has allowed there to be a split at the Mite C level to have 2 teams. Parents, please check your team page in the coming days for important information from your manager. Sorry for any confusion this may have caused but we feel this is the best thing for all participants in our program, if you have any questions or concerns please contact Erik Hermanson, the Mite Hockey Director.
Position filled. Thank You Joann Schmidt!
Any Learn 2 Skate or Mite D's that need gear, please contact Lara at 651-210-2735 to set up a time to meet. No one is at the warming house unless a time has been set up for meeting. Thank you.
The PCYH Board will be selecting coaches at the upcoming board meeting on Monday. If you would like to be considered for a coaching position please contact Eric Danielson if you have not already done so. Managers will be selected as well, please contact Lara Smetana if you are interested in managing if you have not already done so. Go to the board tab and send an email to Lara or Eric.
All coaches and managers must be registered with USA Hockey and have their safe sport completed. the coaches will also need to have a valid CEP # with the correct coaching module.
ALL paperwork needs to be completed ASAP so the team books can be done and rosters signed off by D10 Hockey. Coaches and managers who have not completed the required paperwork will be red lined from coaching this season.
All Dragon gear must be ordered and purchased directly from Lee's Pro Shop now that the deadline has passed for the group order. You most likely will not receive it before Christmas.
Thanks for everyone who was at picture night. It is truly organized chaos, but great to see everyone's smiling faces.
A few things: A helmet with $34 stickers was left on the ice, if it belongs to your skater it is in the office at the arena, ask one of the workers for it.
Another helmet was taken by accident, so if you have the wrong helmet, please find Chad or Gabby Schumacher. She has one but it is not hers.
Once we know when pictures will be in, an email will be sent out.
PCYH will be selling wreaths again this year. all order forms and information is below. Orders must be in By November 4th. Wreaths will be ready for pick-up on Friday, November 18th from 5-7pm and Saturday November 19th from 9:30-11:30 at the outdoor rink warming house.

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.
