Created in 2000 for players with develop­mental disa­bilities, the Amer­ican Special Hockey Assoc­iation (ASHA) gives people of all ages and abilities a chance to learn and grow by playing hockey. There are currently over 50 ASHA programs in more than 30 cities through­out the United States. Follow special hockey on Twitter and Facebook.

The American Special Hockey Association oversees programs across the country that give people with physical and developmental disabilities the chance to play ice hockey in an environment adapted to their level of ability. In addition to physical hockey skills, the program helps develop characteristics like dependability, self-reliance, concentration, teamwork, and other life skills. The program uses the sport to help the players be more successful on and off the ice. Contact information at
