The player registration layout is currently being created by SportsEngine, our web provider. After completed, we proof read and edit as necessary then release. The registrations, including a new coaching registration, should be ready in a few days. We're working hard on this. Thanks for your patience. Also, if wanting to coach, please use the coaching registration link at the top left of this page, which is open, as those who register will be given first consideration. The coaching registration is free except for registering with USA Hockey. ALL COACHES ARE REQUIRED TO FILL OUT THIS REGISTRATION FORM! IT'S THE FIRST STEP IN COACHING WITH US!!! This includes all assistant coaches and on ice helpers. Also, all coaches who are currently level 1 and are only going to coach / assist with 8/U players (which includes 6/U, cross ice, learn to play), unless also coaching / assisting with squirts and up, need not attend a level 2 clinic until coaching at such levels.
Along with the registrations, a mention about photos and videos. We know many pics are taken of players by the player's parents / guardians and, with or without their knowledge, others, too.. We, on occasion, take photos in an attempt to promote our association, and when possible and requested, share them with the player's parents / guardians. As a note, RECORDING DEVICES OF ANY TYPE ARE NOT PERMITTED IN THE LOCKER ROOMS... THIS INCLUDES CELL PHONES!

Having a disability is hard enough: a lot of obstacles to overcome, limited accessibility to a lot of things, but most importantly, being accepted and included. Having a disability shouldn't mean you can't participate in actitvities an abled body person enjoys doing. For the most part, it might be just knowing the activity is available, like sled hockey. Yes, hockey played in a sled. Through specially designed equipment, those with a disability can enjoy being out on the ice and playing the greatest game on earth. And it's a total blast! USA Disabled Hockey is out to put disabilities on ice by making sled hockey available to Flint and the surrounding areas because hockey is for everybody who wants to participate. Thanks to Aaron wanting to skate, this is here. If interested in trying a sled, please contact Mick Carroll, our Disabled Coordinator, at (810) 210-7811 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll make sure it happens. Click here to watch a great video on sled hockey.
Monthly sled hockey ice sessions are available starting in October thru March at Crystal Fieldhouse. Sleds can be tried anytime throughout the year. The monthly sessions are courtesy of Star Rehabilitation of Grand Blanc.
Make a difference in the lives of those in need. It doesn't have to be huge. It's the gesture that counts. Always be nice and good things will happen!
