The goal of special hockey is to give people with intellectual disabilities the chance to play the sport of ice hockey in an environment which is adapted to their level of ability.

The athletes play upright and in most cases penalties such as offside and icing are not part of game play. Special Hockey emphasizes fun through teamwork, social interaction, and improving the quality of life through on and off ice activities.

 

Sled hockey follows most of the typical ice hockey with a few differences. Players sit in specially designed sleds that on top of two hockey skate blades.

There are two sticks for each player instead of one and and the sticks have metal pics on the butt end for players to propel themselves. 

 

   

 

USA Hockey's Warriors Hockey Discipline is dedicated to injured and disabled US Military Veterans who have served our country.

While some of the participants played hockey prior to being injured, many try it for the first time and find a new passion for this great sport.  To be eligible to compete in the Warrior Hockey Discipline, Veterans must meet certain requirements.
