About ASHA Ambassadors


The American Special Hockey Association is proud to announce a great new program which makes our organization even stronger.


Special Hockey Ambassadors are current and former professional hockey players and coaches who serve as advocates for special hockey programs and players. They support the mission of the American Special Hockey Association (ASHA) to give more people with developmental disabilities a chance to learn and grow by playing hockey.


Created in 2000 for players with developmental disabilities, ASHA sponsors clinics, games, and tournaments but has a strong emphasis on therapy rather than completion. There are currently more than 58 programs in over 54 cities throughout the United States.


Special hockey ambassadors lend their names, visibility, and influence to bring attention to the abilities of people with developmental disabilities. By doing so, they promote the sport of hockey while building acceptance, tolerance, and respect for people of all abilities.
