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 and competitive sport for everyone to enjoy from youth to adults.
Athletes must be ages 10 and up. All registrations are on-line. Sorry no walk-up registrations for Special Olympics Floor Hockey.

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.
