StarSkaters provides children and adults with special needs with the an opportunity to socialize, exercise, build confidence and compete on ice. Whether its sled hockey or just skating, this program enables people to participate in an environment that fosters self esteem, confidence and a passion for competition. Sled Hockey, which is ice hockey's equivalent of wheel chair basketball, is a growing sport that is both fun and highly competitive for those who seek to challenge themselves. This Houston organization is totally volunteer based and driven by individuals who seek to give back to the community. Skaters look forward to each week's activities with excitement and enthusiasm as it quickly becomes a source of new dreams and aspirations for many, demonstrating that there are no boundaries for those who are willing to challenge themselves. As a volunteer, this program uniquely gives back to all who are involved with a unique sense of fulfillment in knowing that we all can make a positive difference in other people's lives. Houston, TX is giving back thanks to founder, Jim O'Neill and all that he has done to make this dream a reality.
