This isn’t a blog, but ASHA deserves special mention:
American Special Hockey League The American Special Hockey Association oversees programs across the country that give people with physical and developmental disabilities the chance to play ice hockey in an environment adapted to their level of ability. In addition to physical hockey skills, the program helps develop characteristics like dependability, self-reliance, concentration, teamwork, and other life skills. The program uses the sport to help the players be more successful on and off the ice. Like them on Facebook!
