Adaptive Ice Hockey

Since 2008, SABAH’s adaptive ice hockey program has provided individuals with special needs the opportunity to learn basic skating and fundamental hockey skills in a relaxed and non-threatening environment.


Along with the assistance of several volunteer instructors, head hockey instructors Mark McDonnell & Kevin Ogiba spend the practice time running drills with as many as 30 athletes each season.


Schedule & Location

Adaptive Ice Hockey runs each year from January through April, with a total of seven practices per season. The final four practices include a game at the end.
