Hello Summit Hockey Families!


Upcoming events: 

Summer Hockey Programming Sign ups are available for all summer programs under registration on the Summit Hockey Website. A list of the times for summer ice are listed below. We will be focusing on key areas of development for all players this summer. Monday evening skates will be returning for all age groups as well as 2 week long camps for those age groups. We will also be providing a Shooting specific clinic in August as well as a checking specific clinic for Bantam aged players in August. Additionally there will be 2 goalie clinics this summer. Reserve your spot now as space is limited and it will be opened up to players outside the organization soon.


What’s New?:

As you may know this past year we had some unexpected success from some teams and we just wanted to recognize the accomplishments of the Squirt C team as DNHL Runners-Up, the PeeWee B team as CDYHL Runners-Up, the Girls U-14 team as regular season champions with the top record, and the PeeWee A team who brought home a State Championship for Summit Hockey. Congratulations to all! While we emphasize that we are primarily focused on building better players and people we are very happy to add banners and hardware to our rink!

Featured Player(s): Wyatt Dickerson

Q: When did you start playing hockey and what influenced your decision?

A: My parents put me on skates right after I learned to walk, and being the youngest of 5, having watched my older siblings play I knew I wanted to play from a young age. Naturally as the youngest I wound up as a goalie (enhancing Coach Wren's theory on why players pick the position). It really is a part of the the family and so I've always looked forward to my opportunities to participate in this game and following in my older sibling's footsteps.


Q: You're Graduating this year, when you look back is there a year that sticks out as your favorite?

A: Every year is unique, so I am really not sure which one sticks out as my favorite. That being said, probably the present year and wrapping up my HS career and capping it with the Mountain Militia since it is freshest in my mind. Each year I gained important life lessons and memories I will cherish and never forget.


Q: Aside from being a great goalie what is your biggest takeaway from SYHA?

A: Important life lessons, memories of the good and bad moments that are inherent in every season and all the friendships which were augmented by my involvement in the sport. There is really no other family like that of a hockey team. It is a sport which brings you closer together than anything else i have ever been a part of.


Q: What was your favorite moment of your SYHA career?

A:There certainly are plenty, but my favorite moment was probably winning our first tournament down in Denver. It gives you a great sense of pride when as a small mountain town team you can step up and play at a high level against the powerhouse teams in Denver and across the front range with hundreds more kids available to them than our organization.


Q: What's next for you? College?

A: College, heading not that far down the road to CU Boulder to study Engineering


Q: Any advice to young players coming up through the system?

A: Don't take any time or opportunities for granted. Time flies and before you know it you will be graduating and off to your next adventure. Make every moment count and never let laziness and complacency take over your attitude towards the game. Your coaches are volunteers and make many sacrifices so that they can dedicate everything to you and invest immense amounts of time and effort into making you a better player and person. Show them the effort and the respect they deserve and when you look back at it you will be happy you did as a better person and hockey player.



Community notes and announcements:

As many of you are well aware, Bantam player Dylan Parmley and his family were involved in a very scary car accident on the way back from Gunnison during the season at the beginning of February for those interested we received an update on their recovery process and would like to report that they are all doing very well.  Dylan had his halo removed March 29th, a follow-up surgery March 30th and has been only in a neck brace since.  They were still able to travel to Mexico over spring break for a planned trip with Anne's brother and his family that had been set since last September. The trip was very healing Anne reported.  Dylan is back in school full time and we hope he will be cleared to resume all activities by June, including getting back on the ice for some summer hockey!  Austin has completed all physical therapy and is doing great.  They also wanted to express their thanks for the wonderful support from Summit Hockey, parents, coaches, players and this great community we live in! If you would like any information as to how you can help the Parmley family continue their road back to excellent health and full healing feel free to contact Director Chris Miller.


Mountain Militia:

The Mountain Militia program is a program which was created 6 years ago to afford High School players the opportunity at a higher level or continue playing hockey through the spring. For the first time ever the Mountain Militia featured 3 teams including a T1 team which plays close to the level of AAA hockey, a T3 team which plays more at the same level as CHSAA hockey and a JV team which is similar to our Midget level program. The T3 and JV team will be participating in playoffs from May 4th-8th while the T1 team will be playing from May 13-15th. This fall we are looking to expand the militia program to the lower age levels to afford our players who are capable of playing at the next level now an opportunity to play higher level hockey at tournaments with players of other organizations. Furthermore we would eventually like to expand the program to an overseas tournament team! Stay tuned for the next developments.


We want your input, what do you think? Please respond directly to this email to weigh in on our monthly question.
What do you think about 6:15am practices? 
We will be adding an ice slot at least once a week this fall for ice time in the morning and want to know how you feel about it. For? Against? Indifferent? What if we made it a free drop in skills session? What if it was a rotating practice for the teams who wanted it? Let us know what you think.
