After years of prayer, the Northstar Knights are excited to announce the groundbreaking of their state-of-the-art family dormitories. The dorms will be used to house not only Knights players in season, but also for coaches and families that come to visit FCA Hockey from all over the country. “This Project will be a tremendous asset for both the Knights program as well as FCA Hockey, impacting players and coaches from across the world for years to come.” said Northstar Director and Co-Founder, Rick Randazzo. The facility will total 26,000 square feet and will feature 28 rooms with the ability to accommodate 60 athletes, an industrial kitchen, lounge areas, and laundry rooms and game rooms. “We pray that it is a safe place for athletes and coaches to connect with the Lord during their time at Northstar,” Randazzo said. A vital new member to the Northstar Knights staff has been the Director of Development, Brian Downer. Alongside Randazzo, Downer has been instrumental in raising the funds to initiate the building process. “We’re incredibly grateful for the immense generosity of our faithful donors and trust that they will be blessed beyond measure for stepping out in faith in support of the kingdom work happening here,” Downer said. “We will continue our fundraising efforts as the foundation of the dorm is completed this fall, and we will begin to build from the ground up when the weather warms this coming spring.”

Phase one of the dormitory project will be completed by early November 2022 and includes all of the groundwork preparing the site for a spring build.
