Disabled hockey programs sponsored by USA Hockey across the nation are proving that hockey is for everyBODY. These programs are divided into six "disciplines." The six disciplines are: Amputee, Hearing Impaired, Sled, Special, Blind/Visually Impaired, Warrior Hockey (veterans with a disability playing upright). Check out these USA Hockey sanctioned programs that help athletes of all abilities find their way into the game.

USA Hockey and the USA Hockey Foundation is offering a sled grant program to assist new start-up sled programs. The purpose of this grant is to help with the initial costs of getting a new sled program off the ground and to ease some of the initial financial burden by providing five (5) new sleds to a participating program.
It is quite easy to qualify for this program. Applicants must submit a Sled Grant Application Form, the new sled program must be in its first year of operation and a financial statement and/or budget must accompany the application.
