    Faribault Hockey mid-year Survey (end date Jan 31st)

    This year we are adding a mid-year survey as we want to continue to improve just as we expect our hockey players to do throughout the season.  I know this is a long email but please read the information below as everyone deserves a pat on their back for all the help in making this season so far a success…Thank You!!!!

    This mid-season survey is anonymous, unless you put your name on it, please be respectful and truthful with your feedback.  We ask that you rate the hockey program, the association, and the board based on this season experience.  As stated above, our goal as an association is to continue to improve and also know what is working. If you have questions or concerns please reach-out to the hockey board at one of the monthly meetings or to a board member.  Thank you in advance for participating in the survey. Your feedback is important.  We will also do a survey at the end of the year.

    Survey Link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/8SNN39B

    Survey End Date: January 31st, 2015

    Based on feedback from last season’s survey we focus our efforts on the following this past season:

    • Communication
      • Coaches send out a weekly email that includes what the kids are working on along with the calendar of events.
      • More email communication about FHA events, concession hours, etc.
      • Keeping the website up-to-date
        • We are doing our best with the calendar however we continue to work with SportNGIN, the company that builds and host the website, as they know they have an issue of events disappearing.  Yes, everyone finds this frustrating as it takes more time to keep re-verifying the calendar.
    • Recruiting
