    Try Hockey for Free Day

    Faribault Hockey Association and USA Hockey are teaming up to offer Try Hockey for Free Day.  Please register ahead of time as space is limited to only the first 50 skaters.

    This event is designed to provide kids, between the ages of 4 to 9, a completely free experience to try youth hockey. A limited amount of equipment is available to borrow. Our top coaches will be on the ice to assist your child in learning the basics. Your son or daughter does not need any previous skating or hockey experience. Faribualt Hockey Association will be hosting Try Hockey for Free.

    Date is November 8th, 2014.

    Location: Faribault Ice Arena

    Instructional Skating will be held from 12:30 PM - 1:15 PM. Open and Fun Skating will take place from 1:15 PM until 3:00 PM.

    Concussion Testing

    FHA is sponsoring optional IMPACT concussion baseline testing again free of charge to it’s members and the high school hockey teams.  Dr. David Tapper, the Allina sports medicine doctor, has agreed again to be the interpreting physician for the IMPACT subscription.  Baseline testing is recommended every 2 years and only for kids 10 and older due to limitations with the testing validity at the younger ages.  Additional info is posted on hte website along with the consent form that needs to be completed.  Attached are the info forms again, including the consent (will have extras at the clinic for the testing times too).

     Dr. Tapper and Dr. Drevlow have graciously agreed to assist again this year with testing but due to scheduling constraints, testing was 10/25/2014.

    Make up time for those that absolutely couldn’t make Saturday work (first come first served):  Wednesday, October 29, 5:45-6:30 pm
