Special Education Hockey Program Pilot

By Wilmette Tribe 10/02/2018, 1:15pm CDT

New for the 2018-2019 Fall/Winter hockey season, Wilmette Hockey and the Wilmette Tribe are excited to announce a special education hockey pilot program!


We are looking to bring the great game of hockey to any child, aged 4-10,  who presents with autism to developmental delay to behavior disorder and on through to cognitive impairment.


These sessions will focus on skill building exercises and activities.  There will be no hockey scrimmages or formally constructed games during the clinics. Depending on the disabilities involved, lighting, noise level, and equipment can be adjusted on a per session/participant basis.  The number of participants will be capped at 10 per session.  For Spanish dominant participants instruction will be provided in Spanish.
