The Detroit Red Wing Foundation, GFHA, and Crystal Fieldhouse are teaming up to offer a "Try Hockey & Sled Hockey For Free Day" on Saturday, October 10th, starting at 10 am. Try hockey days are a way for those who might be interested in playing, to try for free with no obligations. The only required equipment is a helmet... a bicycle helmet can be used. We have some helmets and other equipment available to use during this event. We will also have a number of sleds available for those who are physically challenged, to try for free. Click here or call (810) 744-0800 for more info.
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. We're having 'Try Sled Hockey For Free' day on Oct. 10th at 11 am at Crystal Fieldhouse. Click here to watch a great video on sled hockey.
