With the regular season complete, this week comprises playoff preparation for all our traveling teams. Yes, ALL TEAMS REACHED THE PLAYOFFS!
Some had to battle until the last week just to get in while others were playing for seeding in their tournaments.
Good luck to our teams next weekend and may each team, coach and manager a great week of practice and a strong tournament run.

Attention all Mite D's
The Pine City Mite D's have been invited to skate at the UMD Bulldogs hockey game on Hockey Day Minnesota, February 6th, 2016.
The outside skating rinks are open. There is a warming house attendant every school day from 3-9pm, Fridays and Saturdays 10am-10pm and Sundays 10am to 9pm.
If you are a coach and want to schedule an outside practice, please put your team name and time on the calendar in the warming house or text Lara at 651-210-2735. Only one rink can be used for an organized practice, so please keep that in mind when scheduling
Helmets must be worn on the boarded rinks by anyone under 18.
PCYH is seeking candidates who would like to serve the membership on the Board of Directors. Please submit a letter of interest to Brett Westbrook, PCYH President. Elections will be held at the Annual meeting this spring. Date and time to be determined. More info to come.
Please help promote the addition of the Village Inn-Pine City.
The site has been added as a pull tab location as well as meat raffles on Friday nights at 6pm and Sunday at 3pm
The Other Side bar in Rush City has BINGO every Friday at 5:30pm
Thank you for supporting PCYH Gambling promotions.
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.
October ice bills will be coming soon. PCYH has picked up 50% of the ice fees for the month. We feel investing in early ice is a benefit to our association and participants.
Details of amounts and due dates will be on the invoice as each team is billed for the time their team was on the ice.
As like last year there is an on-line payment option at the left of the home page.

Hot Shot Club
Shots are accumulated year to year using puck shooting contest totals. When a player reaches milestones set at 10000, 25000, and 50000 total pucks shot, their names will be engraved on a plate and placed on a plaque that will be displayed at the arena.
Nobody’s a natural. You work hard to get good and then work to get better. It’s hard to stay on top.
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.
