DIBS

FHA is a volunteer organization, many volunteer opportunities exist. FHA has a commitment to cover the concession stand for Community Open Skate and High School Hockey games.  Concession stand profits (approx. $6,000 – $10,000) help offset ice cost for all FHA families. FHA needs volunteers to assist with the concession stand, home tournaments, and various other tasks. Please contact a Board Member if you are interested in volunteering.

All families are required to do Concession/Volunteer Hours. If you have a first-year skater(s) then your family is required to volunteer a minimum of 15 hours in the concession stand, or perform various volunteer projects approved by the BOD’s (Board of Directors), or buy out volunteer time by paying $225.  All other families with skaters are required to volunteer a minimum of 20 hours in the concession stand, or perform various volunteer projects approved by the BOD’s, or buy out of volunteer time by paying $300.

On registration/packet pickup night or when picking up fundraisers, all families are required to submit a DIB’s check. For families with only a 1st year skater please fill-out the check for $225. All other families please submit one for $300.

If you do not fulfill your volunteerism hours, the entire check will be cashed on March 31st. You have until April 15th to submit a written request to FHA’s Treasurer and/or President for the unfulfilled hours at $15 per hour. 

Any uncleared checks will receive an invoice for unfulfilled hours at $15 per hour. Player(s) of this family will not be allowed to participate in future years until the invoice is paid in full.

If we don’t have enough people volunteering for all the concession hours we will be forced to hire.  We have an agreement with the High School and the Community Center of Faribault to have the concession stand open during their activities otherwise they will take this fund raising opportunity away from FHA.

Thank you in advance for participating and being a team member!
