    Welcome to the Fayette Area Youth Hockey Association (FAYHA) Ice Miners web site. 

    Ice Miners Equipment Sanitizing Event

    The Ice Miners will be hosting a company called Bro-Zone to do equipment cleaning. They have a truck where they can load up to 20 sets of equipment at a time, the machine then circulates Ozone to clean the equipment. This is an awesome way to get your equipment cleaned. The cleaning lasts 7-8 weeks, but if you air out the equipment after each use, the cleaning can last up to 12 weeks. The equipment can be cleaned even if it is wet, so this can be done after a practice or a game. They clean ice hockey/dek hockey, football, running (yes, you can clean shoes and boots), lacrosse and baseball equipment. If we have at least 25 sets of equipment cleaned, we will receive 15% of the sales back to the organization. This money can be used for the end of year banquet or some other useful purpose.  

    When: Sunday, January 22nd from 10:00 AM until 6:00 PM

    Where: The Ice Mine
