Boys and Girls High School Teams Locker Room Remodel

Exciting news for the Faribault hockey community! The Faribault Blue Line Club is spearheading a large investment in our hockey arena. This summer, the high school boy’s and girl’s locker rooms will be completely remodeled. This project is being funded through the generous donations of local organizations, businesses, individuals and the Faribault Blue Line Club. Southern Minnesota Woodcraft is creating high quality wood, cubby style lockers for both locker rooms. Beginning in July and throughout August, each locker room will be dismantled, repainted and new lockers installed. Check back to the Faribault Hockey Association website for updates and pictures of the renovation.

Any individual or organization interested in donating to the project can contact Greg Starkson at or any member of the Blue Line Club board.

Summer 2019 - 10,000 Puck Challenge

Summer is here and FHA is excited to launch the 3rd annual summer puck shooting program. This friendly competition runs from June 1st to August 31st and is a great way for our players to improve their shooting skills over the summer months.


Goaltenders can count saves or a 30 minute workout will equal 150 shots. Prizes will be awarded for those that meet the team goals below:


Mites/U8: 2,500

Squirt/U10: 5,000

PeeWee/U12: 7,500

Bantams/HS: 10,000


If you had an account last year, you can log in and update your skater to the 2019 team they will be on for FHA. The site offers different shots to be tracked...this is not as important as shooting pucks, so just make sure the totals are correct. Below is the website to register as well as a few instructions on the program. Feel free to reach out to Brent Peroutka with questions (


Last year we had about 15 skaters qualify...their t-shirts are being ordered and will be delivered soon. Our goal is to at least double the number of skaters that meet their age appropriate goals!!!


We know the 10,000 goal seems like a big number, but it breaks down to just over 100 shots per day...this means your child needs to give up about 30 minutes of Fortnite each day and shoot pucks!!! It's a WIN/WIN!!!
