Faribault Hockey just installed LiveBarn!!! This is where you can watch Faribault hockey on your TV (smart TV), phone, computer, etc.
Welcome to the 2020-2021 FHA Hockey Season. Our board has worked diligently to provide the best overall experience for your son/daughter, whether they are a first time skater or they have the dreams of playing college hockey and beyond.
Below is a list of items/updates regarding registration, the upcoming season, and COVID planning.
Registration date: Still Open
Ice will be in on September 21st. Tryout dates are October 4th and 5th are for player placement for Squirts. Please check calendar for updates to dates and times.
Due to COVID, We will set individual time sessions with our equipment manager Jeff Neher to try on and pick up your hockey gear. More information will be posted to the FHA website regarding equipment rental.
If you have rented equipment from last year and do not intend to keep it for the coming season, please bring this to registration so we can properly clean and sort for future distribution.
If you have extra equipment that you are not using, please feel free to donate equipment in good quality to be used by Future Falcons.
During registration you noticed that the tournament expense was decreased by $50. As a board we decided to only register for one tournament per team this season to limit travel and potential hotel stays. If a team would like to play in another tournament, the team will have to make a proposal to the board of directors/HOC and the team will be responsible for covering the tournament registration expense.
We are still collecting $300 checks for volunteer hours/DIBS as we have done in the past. Please bring a $300 check Payable to FHA to registration.
We are still planning to host our regular home tournaments
Fundraising Calendars and the Wreath fundraiser will remain the same.
The board has decided to move back to registering as mites or mini mites (based on age). The overall format of the program will have some changes based on the recommendations of coaches and FHA parents. The emphasis will remain on skill development with Mini Mites averaging 2 ice times per week and mites averaging 3 ice sessions per week.
We are working with our previous vendor, as well as a few local vendors to provide opportunities for FHA members to purchase apparel.
We are preparing a FHA COVID plan, with the guidance of the MN Department of Health and MN Hockey. Once the document is approved by the city it will be posted and shared with FHA members. The safety of FHA student-athletes is a priority for our association.
We look forward to a fun and successful FHA Season.
