ELMIRA, N.Y. (WETM) – The Elmira Enforcers and the American Special Hockey Association have joined forces to create the Elmira Enforcers Special Hockey team.
All players of any skill level ages five and up with special needs are welcome to join the team to “learn at their own speed to score their goals.”
The athletes are able to learn “good sportsmanship, working with teammates, social skills, how to play hockey, and how to score goals on the ice and at home and school.”
Athletes will be paired into three groups based on their own abilities to create a safe and comfortable environment. Adaptive equipment is available.
The team is also looking for volunteers who are 14 and older to assist the staff.
