Sled Hockey Weekend May 14th-15th

GFHA's sled team, Aaron's Ice Raiders, will have 11 sleds available for the weekend of May 14th and 15th to try.  Our regular "Try Sled Hockey For Free" time is Sunday, May 15th @ 11:30 am.  Sleds are also available to try during our "Try Hockey For Free" days.  If wanting to try during other times like open skating, please call or text @ (810) 210-7811.  These are mostly adult sleds but are adjustable to fit younger skaters.  We have gear, too.

Try Hockey For Free Days

USA Hockey, Kraft Foods, GFHA, and Crystal Fieldhouse once again joined forces to offer a "Try Hockey For Free" day on Saturday, Feb. 20th. Over 65 participants skated making it our 2nd largest.   We have "Try Hockey For Free" days on a regular basis  Check back often for future dates.    Equipment is available.  Sleds will be available to try for free, too.  ABC 12 filmed our largest event in November and the segment was shown on Saturday night and Sunday morning's newscast.

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

A sled hockey ice session is available on May 15th, 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.  Next session is June 12th.
