What is Blind Hockey?

Players are visually impaired ranging from low vision to completely blind. Players use an adaptive puck that makes noise and is larger and slower than a traditional puck.

Our Goal:

Our goal is to introduce people of all ages and skill levels to ice skating and to the sport of ice hockey, and to create a community of connected people by building  up our visually impaired team for the New York Metro area. USA Hockey is working aggressively with Canadian Blind Hockey to make this an official Paralympic sport. Working together, we believe we can accomplish these goals.

Players will have many opportunities to travel across the USA and Canada with the hope to eventually travel worldwide.
