Coach Steve Kozlowski and the Grand Rapids Jr. Sled Wings
Our area team, the Grand Rapids Jr. Sled Wings went to the 2014 USA Disabled Hockey Festival in Marlborourgh, MA. with one thing in mind: 1st place. They finished in 2nd place last year. With high hopes heading into this year's championship game vs. Bennett, the title was within their grasps. Unfortunately, Bennett proved to be a little too much and the Sled Wings had to settle for the runner-up trophy for the 2nd year in a row. Congratulations to the Sled Wings for a great 2013-14 season! The Sled Wings are supported through Mary Free Bed and the many volunteers, families, friends, fans, and fundraisers. Mary Free Bed also sponsors many other sports and activities for people with disabilities, both junior and adults, including the Grand Rapids Pacers wheelchair basketball teams.
