The hockey association is offering free concussion baseline testing for your hockey player with ImPACT, the same program used by many other schools and professional organizations. There is an information sheet and consent form attached. If your child has symptoms of a concussion, this baseline test can be used by his or her medical provider to determine recovery and return to play.
The test has been divided into 2 age brackets: age 12-59 (yes, coaches can do this too) and ages 5-11.
For those aged 12-59, the Allina clinic has volunteered its space from 1:30 pm to 4:30 pm on Sunday October 23rd. I know this is during MEA break, but unfortunately, this is the time that this needs to be done. If your 12+ age child absolutely can’t do this date and you still want it done, please contact me before this date to make alternate arrangements. The kids age 5-11 are more flexible and can be done at a later date depending on practice schedule.
Schedule for Baseline ImPACT Testing According to Team
The Allina Medical Clinic is donating its bank of computers to allow the teams to be tested. Because of the logistics in accessing this computer program for the number of athletes in the Faribault Hockey Association (and for the high school teams too), we ask that your athlete attend only the scheduled time block allotted for your athlete’s team.
Sunday, October 23, 2016:
Misc/alternate times (any of the above times—preference will be for the athletes on the team for that time slot, but will try to fit extra in if there’s room after a few minutes—first come, first serve—space will be limited and not guaranteed if not the scheduled team time).
Make up time (possible to do on your own) for those that absolutely can’t make Sunday work—please let me know—I realize this is MEA weekend but there’s a time crunch with the subscription.
The Faribault Hockey Association along with the Faribault Park and Rec are offering a Learn To Skate program. This is a great program to learn how to skate. We have taught over 100 kids in the last few years. Many continue skating in hockey, figure skating or during open skate.
To register please use the Learn to Skate registration form.
Members of the Faribault Hockey Association and players on the Faribault Hockey team will teach the classes. The classes will be held on the following Saturdays: Oct 22nd, 29th, Nov 5th and Nov 12th from 12:30-1:15. These classes are geared toward youth ages 4-10. Skaters will need to pay for Open Skate however the lesson is free.
If you are interested to rent hockey equipment please show up 1 hour before (11:30 AM) the start of Learn to Skate on Oct 22nd. If this time or date does not work please contact the head coach to coordinate.
