Special Olympics Floor Hockey
...Please read page for details...
Registration Is Open
UT Challenger Sports is a co-ed recreation program that enables individuals with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities to enjoy the benefits of team sports participation in an adapted environment structured to fit their abilities.
Floor hockey is an indoor hockey game, usually in the style of ice hockey, that is played on flat floor surfaces, such as a basketball court. As in other hockey, players on each team attempt to a shoot a round puck (donut) into a goal using a straight stick. More info is available at https://www.sonj.org/sports/select-sport/floor-hockey/
This is a great sport for youth and young adults.
Athletes must be ages 10 and up. All registrations are on-line. Sorry no walk-up registrations for Special Olympics Floor Hockey.

5) Be sure the player's Special Olympic 3 year medical is up to date and submitted. Medical must be up to date to participate in practice and games. (Keep a completed copy for your records). The pdf version of the medical form is recommended.
Special Olympics does not allow players to be teamed up with buddies (or shadows) as we do in our soccer and baseball programs. Practice will be led by coach and assistant coach.
Practices: Sunday mornings 10:00am - 11:30am starting September: 25th. Practice will be held at the Upper Township Community Center located at 1790 RT 50, Woodbine, NJ (Practices may change to Saturday morning but TBA). We ask that players be accompanied by a parent/guardian for practices. Required for new players.
League Play: Special Olympic League play is Saturdays in November and goes through December. Games are planned to be held at Burlington City High School 100 Blue Devil, Burlington, NJ 08016. The complete schedule still needs to be confirmed but we plan on competing in double headers on 3 Saturdays.
2022 Winter Games: SONJ is excited to announce the return of Winter Games in 2023 at Stockton University on Saturday and Sunday, January 7th and 8th.
We recommend each player bring their own equipment for both safety and hygiene reasons. We have a limited supply of equipment to loan to our athletes. If you do not have equipment, we can arrange a time and place to go through our supply.
Helmet with full mask (cage) such as a street hockey helmet...padded gloves such as street hockey or field hockey gloves but not ice hockey gloves...shin guards such as street hockey, ice hockey or soccer. Its suggested to get shin guards that cover knee to ankle because floor hockey sticks can hurt.
