FHA Calendar Sales Due!!!

Remember your FHA Calendar sales are due now!!  Please drop your ticket stubs, log sheet and money (if owed) into the FHA drop box located in the arena lobby.  All drawings take place in early January!


Issues receiving FHA email

A few of our parents have contacted board members and/or coaches stating they are not receiving emails from FHA.  If you are experiencing this issue, the recommendation is for you to please email Sports Engine directly at:  accounthelp@sportsengine.com

Let them know your name, email address (you use to access Sports Engine) and that you are a member of the Faribault Hockey Association.  Also, describe the issue you are experiencing.  Sports Engine will communicate with you directly to resolve the issue.

Thank You!

Selling Wreaths

For each wreath/item sold you profit $10. Wreath orders are due at the end of October with checks made payable to FHA.  Once the forms are returned in good order with $, FHA will cut YOU a check for $10 per each item sold (up to your registration cost).  An example of this is if you sell 10 wreaths... FHA will reimburse you $100.  If you want to play for free, sell more wreaths.

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!
