Having a disability is hard enough: a lot of obstacles to overcome, limited accessibilty 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 is teaming 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. The surrounding areas include anyone who might think Grand Rapids (the only other area in the state that offers youth sled hockey) is just too far to drive to be able to participate. If interested, please contact Mick Carroll, our Disabled Coordinator, at (810) 210-7811 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Click here to watch a great video on sled hockey.
Heading home to score a run
On a hot, steamy, Monday evening, and out on a recruiting mission for hockey players with disabilities, I found my way to DeWitt, Michigan to visit the Miracle League of Mid-Michigan. The Miracle League is designed for kids with disabilities to be able to play baseball. Arriving an hour early to make sure I found the ball field, I found myself in a park with three diamonds. Looking out to the farthest field, I found it... the field of dreams, the Miracle League field. And wow, what a park! MORE>>
