2018-2019 Hockey Club Fairbanks and FAHA
For the 2018-2019 hockey season FAHA will continue its association and collaboration with Hockey Club Fairbanks.  Our collaboration with HCF has been instrumental in growing developmental hockey in Fairbanks and has made our program stronger than ever.  HCF will continue to provide Station Based Training (SBT) , mentorship and guidance to our coaches and players. FAHA players and coaches will continue to wear the HCF jerseys and represent Fairbanks Hockey.
FAHA will continue to work with all Hockey associations in Fairbanks and Alaska in multiple ways to continue to develop and grow strong youth hockey programs that help all Fairbanks hockey players. Our common goal is to allow youth hockey players grow to their full potential and to instill a love for the sport of hockey that will last a lifetime.
