Well over 80 participants skated during our USA Hockey and Kraft Foods national "Try Hockey For Free" day on Nov. 7th. That made it our largest try hockey event to date. All participants up to age 12 will receive a free 2015-16 USA Hockey membership, a $45 value, via a coupon code to be sent out soon. Other goodies given away were jerseys to the first 40 who registered, skating passes to all, and a goodie bag containing an American flag, stickers, and pencils. ABC 12 filmed our event and the segment was shown on Saturday night and Sunday morning's newscast. Thanks to everyone who came out!

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! GFHA has teamed up with USA Hockey 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 email@example.com. We'll make sure it happens. Click here to watch a great video on sled hockey.
