USA Disabled Hockey Workshop

10/08/2013, 12:00pm EDT

Mick Carroll, our Coaching Director and Disabled Hockey Coordinator, attended a USA Hockey workshop October 4th-6th for training on how to bring the sport of hockey to those that are physically challenged.  The workshop, held in Madison, Wisconsin, featured many USA Hockey officials with disabled hockey expertise.  Training included how to organize, promote, write grants, recruit players, mental aspects, equipment, a disabled hockey coaching clinic, and many other facets on how to make it a successful and rewarding experience for all.  Included in the weekend was a training session on how to assemble a sled and then skating in the sled, plus two exhibition games between USA Hockey's National Sled Team and their Developmental Team.   During the on-ice training session / scrimmage, Mick stretched out sideways in his sled to redirect a pass into the net.  He said, "I had a blast!  Absolutely, the most fun!!!"  For more on sled hockey, click here.
