Review for Long Island Sled Hockey Inc. - For the Differently-abled Athlete, Lynbrook, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a combat wounded veteran who served completed two tours in Iraq. I have been a member of the Long Island Sled Hockey team for the past 5 years or so. This is an excellent organization of professional staff who volunteer their time for the rough riders sled hockey team. The players are friendly and caring team members they are mix with abled body as well as players with various types of physical disabilities , intellectual disabilities and some veterans as well. I met some warriors as well on the various teams. I went to a tournament to Chicago back in February 2019 it was a nice experience. This year March 2019 i have appeared on a website called the color of Hockey for Fans and Players of Color. I applied and have been selected as a participant 2019 Sled Hockey Military Sports Camp Skills Academy by the Wounded Heroes Foundation. Hockey is a game for everyone to play and enjoy. Lets Go Rough Riders for winning a few Tournaments this year.

Review for NYC Veterans Alliance Foundation, Inc. , New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been participating with multiple events with this organization and have only positive things to say. These events have given me the chance to meet so many wonderful people and other organizations who are dedicated in serving veterans. This organization has made me feel so appreciated and cared for. The staff have been courteous and compassionate. One of my favorite events was Speak Up and Rise which allows people to share their stories in a safe and supportive environment.

Review for Long Island Sled Hockey Inc. - For the Differently-abled Athlete, Lynbrook, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a combat veteran and have been with the rough riders for approximately 4 years . I love the organization and it is a excellent organization to be part of. . After my reintegration back into civilian sector I had to transition myself. I was fortunate to have gone to one event a professional from adaptive sports from Windham NY told me about sit down water skiing in Connecticut called Leaps of Faith and i was introduce to sled hockey by one of the team mates from rough riders she told me about it an invited me to one of the practices. After the practice I like it and right ten I new I had to be a member of the team.The other rewarding aspect from the Long island sled hockey team are to the various types of disabilities and the team does not let any of their challenges stop them from playing and to be better player. Being part of this team has given me more confidence to challenge myself not only in playing hockey but in other adaptive sports .

I served 7 years Army reserves and after went on active duty stationed at Hunter Army Airfield Savannah Georgia. I served a little over three years active duty and did two tours in Iraq. I am a disabled veteran who has PTSD, and has mild high frequency hearing loss and also have several learning disabilities. After my reintegration back into civilian sector I had to transition myself. I was fortunate to have gone to one event a professional from adaptive sports from Windham NY told me about sit down water skiing in Connecticut called Leaps of Faith and i was introduce to sled hockey by one of the team mates from rough riders she told me about it an invited me to one of the practices. After visited sled hockey team at ice rink and trying some of the drills i found the sport to be therapeutic for me and the rough riders welcome me with open arms as a family to be part of the team. The other rewarding aspect from the Long island sled hockey team are to the various types of disabilities and the team does not let any of their challenges stop them from playing and to be better player. Being part of this team has given me more confidence to challenge myself not only in playing hockey but in other adaptive sports .

Rating: 5 stars  

Learning to sled, having to get fitted, and propelling with the sticks plus all the gear, the helmet, the gloves - it was a lot of upper body workout. But I like to challenge myself,Sled hockey helps me physically and emotionally, and also helps me focus. Seeing my teammates’ disabilities motivates me to overcome my own.”
