Hockey is for EVERYONE!
Sled Hockey provides athletes with disabilities to experience an adaptive form of the sport of ice hockey. Primarily, but not exclusively, geared towards athletes with lower body disabilities, the players use sleds and specialized sticks to play the game with only minor rules modifications.
Special Hockey is a program for children with cognitive disabilities. We completed our inaugural session of TK Special in August 2011.
Hockey kids between the ages of 5 and 8 years old the opportunity to try the sport of ice hockey at little to no cost to their parents. The program starts as a simple “pond hockey” experience, with a bunch of pucks, ice, and no pressure. As the kids progress, simple and fun “drills” will be added to keep them engaged and improving their skating skills.
Friends for Life is a non-competitive cultural exchange with ML Sports of Quebec, Canada, using ice hockey as the common interest. The exchange takes place once per year with the site alternating between Canada and the U.S. The exchange is inclusive of ice hockey players of any skill, gender, or physical ability.
