My son Chris and I have been part of this program for over 15 yrs. the reward of knowing your son or daughter can achieve much like any other athlete can achieve is priceless . This program not only gives my son Chris a way to play a sport he loves, but also enhances his socialization with his peers. Much credit to Long Island Sled. Hockey and its founders, for without them we would not have a pride in our young men and women that we have today. Larry g
