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 firstname.lastname@example.org or any member of the Blue Line Club board.
Faribault Summer Ice Program
Dean Weasler would like to invite you to the Faribault Hockey Summer Program to help you become a better skater. This is a local, non-expensive membership that will teach you Power
Skating, Agility Skating, Speed, Passing, and Shooting techniques. Would love to see you on the ice this summer for a FUN experience.
The schedule is set up for you to attend as many or few of the ice hours as you would like. Coaches will be available for each of the scheduled ice hours to run kids through drills specific to their needs. Kids will be grouped together to work on specific skills. Small area games will be played when enough players are available.
Caution, even though hockey is offered almost every day, I would recommend going only about 2 and maybe 3 times per week. Don’t burn them out of hockey. Association hockey is 5-6 months long during the regular season and we want them there. Enjoy the summer and other activities with them on the other days.
WHO: Any Youth Hockey Player from Mites-Bantam for 2018 – 2019 Season
Note: The Bantams are invited to the HS program therefore they get to choose between the Youth or HS program. If you have questions, please contact Dean.
