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

Rating: 5 stars  

A few years ago I took a trip to Long Island to watch my cousin sled hockey game at the Annual RoughRiders Invitational Tournament. Long Island Sled Hockey, is an organization that supports sportsmanship and athleticism for youth and adults with varying handicaps. Sled hockey, if you have never seen it in action, is quite something. The speed at which the players are able to move themselves and a large sled across the ice, solely with their upper body strength, is unbeliveably impressive. Their shots towards and into the net have such force, that I ducked a few times at the crack of a stray puck against the glass. Family and friends are always in the stands showing support for the team, and it is clear that the leaders of this organization have created a unique community for their team players.
