We love our players!

With 227 players and counting, we have players of every age, all levels of disability, all levels of hockey ability. There is no question, all individuals with disabilities can play hockey!

Let us answer some of your questions:

Who can play? 
Special hockey is for any individual with a developmental disorder. 

How old do you have to be? 
We have players as young as 5 and a few now that are in their late 50s,  who can play for as long as they are able to play.

Can girls play?

What if I've never played or skated before?
No problem! We will help you learn.  

When is the special hockey season?
Registration starts September 1st. The season runs on Sundays from November through February, with some tournaments in March and April.

What equipment do I need?
We've got a handy picture here for all of the basics

That's a lot of equipment, I don't know that I can afford it all.
We can help! We collect a bunch of donated gear in various sizes to help you get started. However, for safety, you should go get properly fitted and buy your own new certified helmet. You should also consider getting fitted and buy your own skates.

How much does it cost to register?
The USA Hockey fee is free for players new to hockey and $50 for returning players. The Minnesota Special Hockey fee is $110.

I have some financial hardships and can't afford the registration fees.
We don't want fees to stop you from playing. So you can apply for a scholarship during the MSH registration step of the sign up process.
