“One of the great things that any community can do is not teach tolerance, but live tolerance, not talk respect, but live inclusivity.” Michael Pritchard
"People with disabilities have the power to demonstrate that everything is possible. Logic is an illusion compared with the power of determination"
“Our minds are as different as our faces; we are all travelling to one destination- happiness; but few are going by the same road.” Charles Caleb Colton
Electric City Special Needs Hockey provides opportunities for any child or adult with physical or developmental special needs. We include everyone, no matter their ability, focusing on improving or developing new skills and working on individual goals while having fun at the same time. Coaches and volunteers work with players to learn to skate, working on individual goals, and assisting in pushing wheelchairs and much more. In our program every child and or adult is valued, included and given the opportunity to be part of a team and treated equally. Quickly they develop many close and meaningful friendships, discover new strengths, new skills, improve their health, find joy, build confidence, fulfillment and most importantly have so much fun in the process! Our main goal is to always have fun!! There's no competition and everyone's success is celebrated no matter how big or small!
Electric City is always looking for dedicated volunteers who want to make a difference in the life of a special needs child or adult. You’ll quickly learn that this is much more than putting in a couple of hours on the ice teaching skills Relationships are quickly formed with players and their families and you’ll walk out of the rink with a full heart and a smile on your face anticipating when you get to do it all over again. The adage of “giving back to the game” has never been truer, you’re rewarded with smiles, laughter and a lot of high-fives.
