Prepare for SHI 2013 Tournament in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada

Tournament - March 14-16, 2013

March 14-16, 2013, Kitchener will be hosting the 19th Annual Special Hockey International tournament. The annual SHI tournament brings together teams from across North America and England once a year for a major gathering. There are no elimination rounds, no one team is crowned champion. In our eyes they are all champions. Every team plays up to 4 games and every player on every team plays equally.

Special Hockey International

Special Hockey allows the developmentally challenged to achieve their own goals on their own schedule. There are no age groups. There are no tryouts. They don't even need to be able to skate. All they need is what they already have desire. They will learn how to skate, how to hold a stick, how to handle a puck, how to make a pass, how to take a shot, how to make a save. Some may learn by the end of their first season, others may take years. What they will all do immediately is participate at every practice and at every game. That's because they don't have to meet anyone else's expectations, only their own.
