Special Hockey Washington was founded in 1999 to give children and young adults with developmental disabilities the opportunity to play ice hockey.  With the encouragement and support of our friends at the Gardens Ice House in Laurel, MD, we skate every Saturday morning from October through April.  Volunteer coaches and high school mentors challenge the players to improve their hockey skills, increase self-reliance and experience the joy of playing as a team. The challenges our players face in school and as they enter the work world are great.  After  years of this program we know that as our players mature in self-esteem and confidence on the ice, their endeavors at home, in school and at work also benefit.

Rookies Hit the Pond

The Capital Showdown Tournament marked the first games for a few of our Ice Dogs players.  Friday night, Polina took her first face-off against the NoVa Cool Cats with the assistance of the Kaye Trainer.  Saturday early afternoon featured Julius, Ryan and Andrew taking the ice.  Congratulations on your first games, Polina, Julius, Ryan and Andrew!  Here's to many more with the Ice Dogs.

 

Ovie the Bulldog

I got to spend some time with Ovie the Bulldog while in San Diego. Ovie is the official mascot of the Washington Ice Dogs.
