Buffalo Clinic

On the heels of a successful clinic kick-off in Annapolis in February, FCA Hockey held its second clinic last month in Buffalo. Judging by the reactions from organizers as well as participants, the March 28 Buffalo clinic more than exceeded all expectations.

According to Rick Randazzo, new leader of the FCA Hockey ministry and a Buffalo native, 27 young men and women participated in the clinic, including four from the top prep schools in the area.

“We started the clinic with on-ice drills and skills assessment, then moved to a fellowship conversation off the ice, just as we’d done in Annapolis,” said Randazzo, former head coach of the U.S. Naval Academy’s hockey team. “We also had several parents join us for the discussion, which was great.”

Besides Randazzo, FCA Hockey volunteers Jeremy Simpkins, Andy Vicari, and Sophia Wang also led both the on-ice and off-ice sessions.

Later that same evening, Randazzo, Simpkins, and Vicari spoke to approximately 40 adult hockey players at the Chapel at CrossPoint, a non-denominational Christian church in Getzville, New York, less than 20 miles northeast of Buffalo.

“That was a great atmosphere,” Randazzo said of the evening event. “The Chapel at CrossPoint is a beautiful facility and the ministry work they do there is amazing. We were honored to be able to speak there and share the Word about Jesus Christ to a great group of guys.”

The third in FCA Hockey’s series of clinics will be held later this month, on Saturday, April 18, at the Edge Ice Arenas in Bensenville, Illinois. The Edge Ice Arenas is the practice facility for the NHL’s Chicago Blackhawks.

It is suitable, hoevwer you do still have a slight risk of messing up the jesrey in same way or form. A skate may cut/rip or someone's tape from their stick may mark it up, etc. I wouldn't wear it, so you don't potentially injure it and so it stays fresh for when you want to wear it out and about. Most jerseys now have them if not all do have the small holes for light weight and for ventillation.
