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!  Thanks to Aaron, 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.  Any youth or adult interested in trying a sled, please contact our Disabled Hockey Coordinator, Mick Carroll (Aaron's Coach) at (810) 210-7811 or mick@gfhahockey.com.  We'll make sure it happens.  Click here to watch a great video on sled hockey.

USA Hockey's National Disabled Festival is coming to Detroit in 2016.

A special thanks to Star Rehabilitation in Grand Blanc and Jerry and Tiffany, owners of Sharky's Sports Bar, for their support of Disabled Hockey.  Without them, and others like them, it makes it very difficult to give kids and adults with special needs an opportunity to enjoy the same things that their able bodied counterparts can do.  So to Star Rehab and Jerry and Tiffany, THANK YOU!!!!
