Yvette Connnely -- 

I am a current member of USA Hockey and have my Level 2 Coaching Certification. In addition, I play for the lady’s Park City Predators hockey team. I have held many leadership positions over the years and have sat on numerous boards holding positions from Treasure of the Arizona Reining Horse Association to Vice-President of Lake Rockport Estates Property Owner’s Association. I currently manage over 100 accounts with my job that I have held for over 19 years. I work with a variety of people, managing communications between veterinarians to business owners, manufacturing to marketing. My experience on different boards and with my job will allow me to offer feedback and suggest ways to improve the organization. Also, as licensed foster parent, I have seen the impact of what one caring adult can make in the life of a child, whether it be a coach, another parent, or an older sibling of a child. My hope is that not only would our organization continue to produce successful athletes that have a passion for hockey, but that we can also provide opportunities for our players to develop into young adults who are responsible, leaders in their community and who can build life-long friendships on and off the ice.

David Kleinman -- 

 I'm an I.T. professional and Wisconsin native with a lifelong passion and love for hockey. My son just finished his final Miners Mites season after participating in the wonderful Summer Ice Program. Hockey interests for the Miners program include working with the city to build an inline hockey facility for off ice shooting development. Before relocating to Park City, I coached Mites, coordinating travel and fundraising for the team. Looking forward to contributing my time and energy to the Miners program.

New Director of Hockey!


Press Release:  New Director of Hockey

Date:  January 18, 2017


Park City Ice Miners youth hockey program is proud to announce the hiring of Mike Adamek as the next Director of Hockey.  Mike will be taking over for the first hockey director in the history of the Ice Miners, Aaron Dufford who has been the Director of Hockey for the last six years.


Through Aaron’s leadership over the last six years, the Ice Miners have nearly doubled in the number of players involved;  added our first U16 AA team which has won the Utah State Championship 2 of the last 3 years; added our first U18 AA team; added two levels of competitive hockey teams at the Squirt (U10), Pee Wee (U12) and Bantam (U14) programs; and added a professional coaching staff at all levels of the program.  These are only some of the accomplishments that Aaron has achieved over his tenure.  One of the amazing characteristics of Aaron, is his ability to connect with all players.  There is no one else in the program who knows virtually all of the players by name and talks with every player that he meets.  Aaron will be missed as his family opportunities will be moving him out of the Park City area.  


Mike Adamek is currently coaching the Ice Miner’s U18 AA team and coached the U16 AA team for the 3 years prior and won the Utah State Championship 2 of those 3 years.  Mike also works at the Park City Ice Arena as a supervisor and Hockey Academy coach.  He also is a Owner and coach of the 3 Brothers Hockey Academy which hold many hockey clinics throughout the year.  Prior to being part of the Ice Miner’s program, Mike was the Coaching Director of the Regulators and was the head coach and program manager for their  U18 AAA team.


The Ice Miners look forward to an exciting future with Mike as our Director of Hockey! (Mike Adamek can be reached by e-mail at PChockeydirector@gmail.com)
