SABRES ALUMNI TO HOST HOCKEY CLINICS AT ALOMA D. JOHNSON CHARTER SCHOOL
The Buffalo Sabres today announced the Buffalo Sabres Alumni Association will host hockey clinics on May 8 and 9 for students at the Aloma D. Johnson Fruit Belt Community Charter School in the city of Buffalo.

BUFFALO, N.Y. (May 7, 2012) --- The Buffalo Sabres today announced the Buffalo Sabres Alumni Association will host hockey clinics on May 8 and 9 for students at the Aloma D. Johnson Fruit Belt Community Charter School in the city of Buffalo.

Sabres Alumni member Darryl Shannon will conduct the May 8 clinic from 9:20 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., while Alumni President Rob Ray will host the May 9 session from 9:20 a.m. until 4:10 p.m. The team’s mascot, Sabretooth, will be on hand for both events.

An estimated 250 students, ranging from grades 1-4, will participate in the two-day event. Participants will learn basic floor hockey skills through hands-on drills conducted by the instructors. The clinics present an opportunity for children to use the street hockey equipment that was donated to the St. John Baptist Church by the Sabres earlier this year.

On Jan. 13, Mayor Byron Brown joined Sabres Chief Development Officer Cliff Benson to formally present the equipment to St. John Pastor Michael Chapman at the Reverend Dr. Bennett W. Smith Family Life Center in downtown Buffalo.

“This is a great way for us to reach out to our community,” Benson said. “Buffalo is a hockey town and we’re always looking for ways to grow the sport in our community. This donation will hopefully give even more people the opportunity to play a sport that they love.”

The donation included 150 sticks (75 senior/75 junior), 10 sets of goalie equipment (five senior/five junior), and six nets, all to be used for hockey programs at the church and the Aloma D. Johnson Fruit Belt Community Charter School.
