    Matt Scherber

    Check out this great Let's Play Hockey article about Rogers Wildcat player Matt Scherber.  It is a great story!  Matt is a really special guy!


    MN Special Hockey is lucky to have players like Matt playing with us.  We are also lucky to have great volunteers like Ryan Erlandson.

    Coach and Volunteer Registration Information

    All adult (18 and older) coaches and volunteers must register with USA Hockey.  Then complete the background check at the Minnesota Hockey Website.  Email your USA Hockey Registration confirmation number AND team name to Colleen Simcoe at colleen@mnspecialhockey.org

    If you are volunteer that is going to be on the ice, you must sign the Waiver of Liability before you step on the ice.  Please give this form to your team manager or head coach at the first practice.

    No one will be allowed on the ice without the coach or volunteer registration complete, volunteers MUST complete the Waiver of Liability.

    Youth volunteers (under 18/high school age), can provide their USA Hockey Confirmation number to Colleen if they are players with their local association.  If they do not have a USA Hockey Registration they MUST have a completed Waiver of Liability form.
