USA Disabled Hockey Unveils new Sled Lending Program!

The USA Disabled Hockey Section has instituted a new program, called the One Kid . . .One Sled . . .One Shot. . .A Hockey Player for Life! Program that is designed to help bring new players into the sport of sled hockey by initiating a loaner sled program for rinks and organizations who want to conduct "Learn to Play Sled Hockey" clinics but were prevented from doing so due to the lack of sleds and sticks needed to conduct such introductory clinics.

The One Kid . . .One Sled . . .One Shot. . .A Hockey Player for Life! Program is easy to implement. If your rink or organization would like to conduct a "Learn to Play Sled Hockey" clinic, simply fill out the request form located below and submit. Applications will be determined on a first come-first serve basis. The sleds and sticks will be shipped directly to the rink you are conducting the clinic at three days before the date of the clinic. You are then required to ship the sleds back within three days after the conclusion of the clinic. All shipping charges will be paid by USA Hockey. It's that simple!

This new One Kid . . .One Sled . . .One Shot. . .A Hockey Player for Life! Program will allow your rink or organization to open the doors to a whole new market of potential sled players. We encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity and start a sled program within your rink or organization today!
