ABOUT LOUIS SCHMITZ
In 1953, Louis Schmitz founded the Farmington Youth Hockey Association. Louis had just moved to Farmington and noticed there was not an organized program for kids to play hockey. He rounded up some players who were hanging around the rink and went to White Bear Lake to play the first organized game for FYHA. Farmington lost that day but Louis persevered with many volunteers to build the foundation of the Farmington Youth Hockey Association.
Schmitz started Farmington’s first girls hockey team in 1965, 30 years before the sport was recognized by the Minnesota State High School League. He continued to coach girls teams at several levels over the years. He was inducted into the Women’s Hockey Association Hall of Fame in 2005.
His vision and determination have provided an opportunity for thousands of Farmington area kids to play organized competitive hockey.
