Meet Y.E.T.I.

The mission of Youth & Enthusiasts Together for Ice (Y.E.T.I.) is to create a safe environment and facility for families and friends to gather while participating in healthy, invigorating, and family oriented activities revolving around ice sports which include public ice skating, figure skating, hockey, etc.


The history of Y.E.T.I., The Glacier,  and ice skating in southern Utah is an interesting one. It all began on a pond. Click here to learn about the people and events that lead to the birth of formalized ice sports in our backyards.


The 15-16 season was an unqualified success for the Glacier Community Ice Rink. Despite a short season (November-February), 19000+ tickets were sold to ice enthusiasts. More than ever, local K-12 schools took advantage of the Rink. School field trips to the facility gave students a still unfamiliar outdoor sport experience in Cedar City. The Rink made several improvements to its facility this year, including; an ancillary building for the hockey teams to change in, a snack booth during high school hockey games, a concrete Zamboni pad, extensions added to both players benches, an additional 45 pairs of skates, more dependable/commited volunteers, online streaming of SUI games, and an additional 15 hockey helmets donated by the Korths Rebels Foundation. 


Y.E.T.I. had roughly 150 local youth from Beaver to Mesquite enrolled in the youth hockey program. Southern Utah Independent high school varsity hockey team comprised of 22 boys and girls was born. Despite learning to skate late in life (relative to the norm) our local youth have quickly excelled. Significant 2015-16 high school hockey hi-lights highlights include: 5 players selected to participate in the state all-star game, 3 female players selected to represent our state in Chicago, Illinois at a national tournament, and one of our 14-year olds ranked #1 female goalie in Utah for girls 14-19. This player was also selected to attend the US Olympic camp and tryouts in the pursuit of being an Olympic hopeful.
