After completing Learn to Skate and gaining confidence through the Start Smart and Mini Mite programs, skaters are ready to join the Peaks Polar Bears, a recreational program for children ages 6-14. Recreational means an emphasis on equal play, sportsmanship, and skill development. The Polar Bears play at the Peaks Ice Arena, and as part of the Utah Recreational League, travel to arenas in Logan, Vernal, Kearns, Bountiful, and Park City. The Polar Bears season runs from October through March.
All practices are at the Peaks Ice Arena with 1/2 of the games at home and 1/2 away. Games are held on Saturdays. Each team will have one to two practices a week. The days and times depends on the league and availability but are usually held on the same days every week. The season typically runs from September to March with registration beginning in August.
The program is sanctioned by USA Hockey. All games will be supervised by Provo City Parks & Recreation personnel. The program will be registered with USA Hockey and will be governed by USA Hockey rules. All officials, scorekeepers and timers will be provided through the Provo City Parks & Recreation Division. On-ice officials are members of the Wasatch Ice Hockey Officials Association and are contracted by Provo City Parks & Recreation to officiate Youth League games. Coaches Team Managers and Assistant Coaches are on a volunteer basis. Parents and Guardians are encouraged to participate in the program to help with the development and supervision of the players.
