Since our beginning in 2006, MN Special Hockey has continued to grow each year. As the only stand up ice hockey program for individuals with intellectual disabilities in Minnesota we had over 280 athletes participate last season (pre COVID), and this year we still have over 200 playing on 14 teams across the state. With such continued, significant growth, we are reaching out to ask for help.
We are seeking volunteers to help on and off the ice. On the ice, everything from assisting our athletes learn to skate to special event coordination. Off the ice, we need help with video creation, digital marketing and fundraising. If you are age 16 or older and are interested in volunteering please click here and complete the registration form.
We are also for the first time ever looking to hire our first Program Director. This position is contractual, with an anticipated 5-10 hours per week. Please see the attached job description. If interested please email your resume to Susie@MNSpecialHockey.org.
We are all very excited to get back on the ice! The next 2 Sundays (the 10th and 17th) we will be able to practice again. Please remember to complete the COVID Weekly Pre-Event Check-In on the Saturday before each practice to make your entry into the rink easier for all.
Remember to stay home if you have any symptoms!!! We don't want to have to cancel any additional ice hours due to potential virus spread.
