Eagle Scout Projet
There are few things in life as exciting as being a part of a team, playing an amazing sport you love.
I have been very lucky to play with this great group of guys. I want to give this same opportunity to individuals with special needs.
Guests will be placed on a team, they will choose a cool team name and be given an incredible coach to keep the excitement up. Each Special Olympian will be given an experienced hockey player partner to be their buddy on the ice. Their buddy will provide instruction and encouragement as they play a non-contact scrimmage with members of the Troy United hockey team.
The crowd will cheer as the Special Olympian experiences the rush of the game and the thrill of scoring a goal.
No prior experience or knowledge of hockey is necessary.
Needed hockey equipment such as jersey, helmet, stick and gloves will be provided.
Caregivers and family members are welcome to sit in the stands and cheer on their favorite player.
The video is made and will be uploaded shortly.
Keep checking back for updates on the day of hockey for Special Olympians.
