PCIM Updates

Hi Park City Ice Miners! It has been a very busy month and we have accomplished a lot. Here are some organization-wide reminders and updates:

CONGRATULATIONS ELLA BYNAN!

The PCIM would like to congratulate former Park City Ice Miner, Ella Bynan, for committing to play NCAA Division III ice hockey for Hood College beginning in 2024-2025. We can't wait to follow your collegiate career!

NECK GUARDS

The Park City Ice Miners continue to highly recommend the use of all protective equipment including neck guards and cut-resistant sleeves, pants, socks, etc. USA Hockey will address a potential rule change proposal as early as their January board meeting and we will be following the outcome of this meeting closely.

CELL PHONES IN LOCKER ROOMS

Just a reminder that cell phones are PROHIBITED from locker rooms at all times. Please remind your player that PCIM has a zero-tolerance policy for cell phones in locker rooms.

Additionally, PCIM provides programs consistent with those allowed by the Utah Amateur Hockey Association (UAHA). PCIM offers 3 levels of play:

Neck Laceration Protection Requirement - August 1

By Bethany Adamek 02/27/2024, 6:00pm MST

USA Hockey has approved a requirement for neck laceration protection to be worn by all players, other than adults, effective August 1, 2024. All Park City Ice Miners players will be required to wear neck laceration protection while participating in any on-ice activity. 

Pure Hockey is USA Hockey's exclusive hockey equipment retailer, but neck laceration protectors can be found at many other hockey retailers in-store and online. 

Welcome Goalie Coach, Jordan Parise

By Bethany Adamek 10/20/2023, 12:30pm MDT

The Park City Ice Miners are excited to welcome Jordan Parise as our new goalie coach. With over 20 years of coaching experience, 250 professional games played, and MVP honors while playing for the University of North Dakota Fighting Sioux, Jordan is excited to join the Park City Ice Miners organization for the 2023-2024 season.  His primary focus will be the growth and development of the goaltenders while providing insight, opportunities, and education for forwards and defensemen in their goal-scoring pursuits.

Jordan will be on the ice several times per week, covering all age groups, to ensure a high-level standard is consistently met.  He will encourage young, motivated athletes to push beyond what they believe is possible.

Welcome to the PCIM family, Coach Parise!
