RRHC Picnic a Rousing Success!!


We had a great kick off to our hockey season with the Reston Raider Annual Family Picnic!  Special thanks goes to Dave and Janet Fishman for overseeing the picnic and Gayle Job and Joe DeNoyior for helping gather provisions! We would like to express our appreciation to Joe DeNoyior and and his company, Washington Financial Group, for our RRHC water bottles.  Thanks also goes to Kevin Burch for yet again allowing us to dunk our coaches. It was great to have our RRHC Travel Players manning all our games and bounce houses.  And of course all the kids enjoyed stopping by The Goalie Academy, Progressive Hockey Development & UnReal Ice booth!   Speaking of showing off skills, we were grateful to have had Shaylun Young with Elite Hockey Science Reston swing by to enjoy the day with his players.  Hopefully all players looked into the Impact Mouthguards and the Glove Stix because we don’t want stinky concussed players.   If you didn’t get a chance to stop by the SkateQuest Proshop during the picnic, go by now for the best gear in town!  And tell Jim Sykes thanks for hooking us up with the CCM Super Tacks Stick!  The Caps deserve a major Shout Out for the autographed stick they sent us to raffle off.  As usual the hit of the day was the Red Rockers who spread cheer and they topped it off with some cool giveaways!  And when you see Jarrod Wronski, the owner of Metro DC DJs & Entertainment, ask him to come back next year because he had some rocking tunes and kept us moving.  And our picnic would not be possible without SkateQuest and Alejandra's team helping us out and providing the venue!

Baseline Testing for House & Travel Players


** Final Opportunities for Free Concussion Baseline Testing on ImPACT ** 

Raiders pays for concussion baseline testing of travel and house players between July 1 and September 30.  Players getting baselined after this date will be charged $25 at the door. 



 Ages 10 and Older: 

  • September 20 (6:30pm)
  • September 28 (6:30pm)
  • October 4 (6:30pm) 
  • October 12 (6:30pm)
  • October 18 (6:30pm) 
  • October 26 (6:30pm) 

 Ages 5-9:

  • September 20 (6:30pm)
  • October 4 (6:30pm) 
  • October 12 (6:30pm)
  • October 18 (6:30pm) 
  • October 26 (6:30pm) 

*** Parents of 5-9 year olds need to accompany their child during the ENTIRE test session ***

 If the above sessions do not appear as options when you register, then they are full. But check back because people do cancel in the 48 hours prior to appointment time.



  • Go to Raiders portal here:

  • Click Athlete/Parent Login if you've been here before.

  • Hit "forgot my registration key" if you don't have it handy from the last time you were here.  

  • Click Create New Athlete User Account if this is all new to you!

  • You can also see the date of your last baseline through FFP on your login page



  • Raiders pays for baseline testing for players who are registered and paid with Raiders if you do it before September 30. Waitlisted players are not covered and should register for baseline as if a sibling/friend (instructions below).

  • BUT if you register for baseline testing and do not attend without canceling in advance, you will be charged $35. Unfortunately, no-shows have happened too often in the past and will not be ignored this year.  Registering for a baseline reserves a computer for your player.

  • Siblings/Friends are welcome, but.....     


LOCATION:   (It's in Chantilly -- NOT at rink):

Fairfax Family Practice Comprehensive Concussion Center (FFPC3) - D1 Facility

14434 Albemarle Point Place

Chantilly, VA 22151

(about 20 minutes from rink.... off Route 28 and 50)


Not everyone needs a baseline this year  

Don't come for baseline if:

1. Your player is getting baselined through high school, another sport or another test company (like at Inova last Spring).  

2. Your player was baselined last year and was 13 or older when they did it.  You can skip this year.  Baselines are good for two years for older players.


Contact if you're not sure if your player needs it this year or you got it done elsewhere.



  • Everyone -- baselined or not -- should do this before mini-camp. 


  • Login into the Raiders portal (see above instructions) to access the online concussion education module.ƒƒ¢ƒ¢‚¬ƒ¢€¹


  • There is one for parents and one for players.  Both should start the season knowing about this important topic.  


ƒƒ¢ƒ¢‚¬ƒ¢€¹ImPACT Baseline Testing:  Why does your player need a baseline?

  • Concussion baseline testing is essential for any player in contact sports.

  • You need a baseline for your player in case he/she shows signs/symptoms of concussion during the season.  

  • If it happens to your child, medical providers can compare the pre-season ImPACT baseline against a post-injury ImPACT test to guide diagnosis and best concussion management for safe "return-to-play" and "return-to-learn."

  • ImPACT is done on a computer, measuring mental tasks such as processing speed, memory and reaction time.  It can detect mental deficits not readily observed.

  • More info about ImPACT here:



This is not the same thing as the King Devick baseline test (flipbook with numbers) that the ILs do at the rink.  See Safety Program Overview for more info.

Reston Raiders 14U Silver Win in Hershey!!!

Reston Raiders 14U Silver win Hershey Travel Champs Bantam A Championship to kick off the 2016-2017 season!  With a very competitive round robin draw, the Raiders defeated Palmyra Black Knights team Friday night 7-4.  Then went on to defeat a very physical Steel City Renegades team 4-1, and faced the Artic Foxes in a penalty riddled Saturday matinee game to finish with a 3-2 win.

After completion of the round robin play, the Raiders found themselves ranked third in the twelve team divisional play against their fellow Raiders 14U ‘03 Blue team for an exciting semi-finals match.  After a quick start by the Raiders 14U Silver, and competitive play by both sides, Raiders Silver came away with a 5-1 win to land a spot in the final against number one seed Montgomery.

After two periods of tied play, and killing off several short-handed five on three penalties the Raiders gained some momentum to out-shoot Montgomery and come away with a 2-1 win with a game winning goal by Ray Ellingwood in the third period!

Way to go Raiders 14U Silver!  Players included: Austin Art, Frank Ellingwood, Ray Ellingwood, Tommy Fisher, Colin Franciszkowicz, Matt Guidash, Ethan Hoffman, Dan Hoh-Hill (G), Sasha Lawrence (G), Ian McKinley, Dan Morgan, Matt Palmieri, Matt Prame, Jacob Rose, Hunter Spicer, Logan Valentin, Brendan Wheeler, Nick Willey.  Managers:  David Art & Steve Willey.  Coaches included: Dave Ellingwood, Tom Fisher,  Marc Fransciszkowicz, Don Hill, Jim Morgan, Mike Prame, Fred Valentin, and Kris McKinley.
