Sled Hockey Is Here In Flint For The Physically Challenged

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  We'll make sure it happens.  Click here to watch a great video on sled hockey.

A sled hockey ice session is available on June 12th, 11:30 am, at Crystal Fieldhouse.  If interested, arrive at 10:30 am for sled fitting.  This is a monthly event courtesy of Star Rehabilitation of Grand Blanc.
