The Oakland Ice Center operated by Sharks Ice is offering a Special Hockey program that is open to all skaters with developmental or physical challenges who would like to participate in hockey. With support and encouragement our program is adapted to the level of the ability of our participants.
Emphasizing fun, safety, and team spirit, the Special Hockey program helps to improve balance and coordination which promotes an "I can do it" attitude that carries over into other aspects of the participant's life.
With the assistance of volunteers, skaters develop skills, make new friends, and experience a new found freedom and sense of accomplishment.
We offer participants the opportunity to take gear home as part of their participation in one of our hockey programs with a signed Rental Agreement.
For ages 6 and up with some prior skating experience. If you are interested in your child joining this class please email the Hockey Manager. Our team practices on Friday evenings from 6:00 - 7:00 PM.
