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 $xx per hour. 

Any uncleared checks will receive an invoice for unfulfilled hours at $xx 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!

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 mrhockey24@charter.net 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 (brent.peroutka@gmail.com).

 

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!!!
