Dec 15th Tournament Press Release

The Sears Adaptive Hockey Program has developed the Massachusetts Adaptive Hockey Initiative as a vehicle to bring the full spectrum of adaptive hockey—introductory through competitive– to Eastern Massachusetts.

The Massachusetts Sled Hockey Initiative is a collaborative effort of Spaulding Adaptive Sports Centers, Boston Shamrocks, Massachusetts Hockey, the Northeast Sled Hockey League, and the DCR Universal Access Program.

All ability levels, ranging from first-timers to experienced players are welcomed and will be coached in small groups by expert professionals and volunteers. Whether participating in our community program, or a member of either the adult “Boston Shamrocks Sled Team” or newly developed youth “Sledgehogs” team, practices will include skills training and small games while ensuring age-appropriate instruction and play.


Throughout the year, community recreational programming opportunities are available for all levels of players. Weekly play is consistently offered September through March, and other programs and clinics are offered at varying locations throughout Eastern Massachusetts.


The Shamrocks are a n adult team registered in the Northeast Sled Hockey League and are a collaborative team managed by Spaulding Adaptive Sports and The Boston Shamrocks. This competitive team offers community players an opportunity to try out and move up to competition at regional and national levels.


The Spaulding Sledgehogs are a brand new youth sled hockey team based in the greater Boston Metro area. This burgeoning team offers youth only practice times and are developing opportunities to play other youth teams in the region.
