USA Hockey and the USA Hockey Atlantic District are excited to announce the 2019 USA Hockey Special Hockey Classic will be held at the Ice Vault Arena in Wayne, New Jersey. Special Hockey teams from around the country are invited to compete November 8-10, 2019.
The special hockey discipline is intended to give people with a wide range of cognitive and developmental disabilities the chance to play the sport of ice hockey in an environment that is adapted to the level of ability. The event will include 16 teams on a first come, first serve basis. Last year's inaugural event saw 10 teams take the ice at the UPMC Lemieux Sports Complex just outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
Registration is now open and will close October 8, 2019.
Hotel details will be available after completing your registration.
The host hotel for the Special Hockey Classic is .3 miles away from the Ice Vault Arena and is available at $124 for one bedroom suite and studio king suite or $174 for a two bedroom suite.
