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.

Coach Mark Carter is an intregal part of the Washington Ice Dogs, serving as the A Team Head Coach for more than 10 years. Coach Carter's impact on the players and families of the Ice Dogs is wide spread and felt deeply, most notably on his own family as his son is the goalie for the team.

Thank You for a Great Skate, Alex!

This afternoon was a whirlwind of excitement for Ice Dog players as they traveled to Arlington, VA to Kettler Iceplex to skate with Washington Capitals Captain, Alex Ovechkin.  This is the third year that Ovechkin has put on a skate with the American Special Hockey Association for special hockey teams in the area.

Thank You, Leveling the Playing Field!

Leveling the Playing Field is a local organization in Maryland that gives underprivileged children the opportunity to enjoy the pleasures of athletic involvement through the donation of sports equipment.  Earlier this year, they reached out to the Ice Dogs about partnering in order to help outfit our players with new - used - gear as they grew out of their old gear.
