Central PA: Looking to start a SLED Hockey Team for Physically Disabled

Want a new and fun way to get your disabled child, family member, friend, or even yourself quality Physical Therapy (PT) out of a medical setting? Sled hockey may be the right sport for you!

I am looking to start a Central Pennsylvania sled hockey team based in the Harrisburg/Hershey area for individuals ages 6+ years who have a physical disability limiting their capability to ice skate in a standing position. Interested players should be able to sit fairly upright in the sled’s bucket seat with the attached seat belts.

Sled hockey is unique and exciting! It is great exercise, a team effort, and offers players and families an opportunity to network within their community and surrounding cities.

I am currently working to get the equipment, such as sleds and hockey sticks donated. You will need to have your own hockey gear.

For the time being, I’m merely gathering information to see if there is enough interest to form a team. Please contact me at sreighard310@yahoo.com if you are interested or for more information.
