2018 USA Hockey Special Hockey Classic

USA Hockey and the Hockey Sticks Together Foundation are pleased to announce the all-new Special Hockey Classic that will take place from Nov. 16-18, 2018, at the UPMC Lemieux Sports Complex just outside of Pittsburgh, Pa. Special Hockey has seen tremendous growth over the past several years and because of that, the USA Hockey Disabled Hockey Section felt the time was right to add this new event to support the many players who participate in Special Hockey every day. 

This event is open to any "B" or "C" level team that is properly registered with USA Hockey. Teams participating will receive a minimum of three games over the course of the weekend. Games will start as early as 4:30 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 16, and conclude no later than 12:00 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 18. More schedule information about the event, including a social event for all players and coaches, will be provided at a later date.

The fee to participate is $295/team.  The deadline to register is October 14, 2018.
