Andy Sawada

Secretary Treasurer - I started my involvement in Special Needs hockey as a volunteer, then an assistant coach and now with my involvement with the Electric City Maroon and White, as a board member and coach. I am blessed to be part of an organization that helps players with special needs develop skills they need for life long success, like feeling part of a team, showing improvements, have a sense of belonging, cheering on teammates, showing respect for our opponents and developing friends just to name a few. 

We continue to grow as an organization where we believe everyone with a special need can play. With generous supporters and a rabid international fan base, I am proud to be part of this organization and look forward to watching our members grow and develop their skills and talents in the years to come!
