Hockey is an expensive sport. Sled hockey is even more so. Players not only require the equipment used by all standup ice hockey players (except for a stick and skates) but they also require a custom sled and two mini hockey sticks with picks. Sleds can cost between $600-$1000 each. Sticks range from $65-$200/pair.
In addition to equipment costs, each player is required to have insurance through USA Hockey ($45/year). We reserve up to six hours of ice each week for players to practice or play games. Practice and game ice can cost between $150-$265/hr.
The opportunity for players to travel and compete in tournaments throughout the US and Canada is priceless but costly. Registration fees and travel expenses can cost an individual family $500-$1500 per event.
The Mighty Penguins Sled Hockey Organization has worked hard to minimize the expenses to players who want to participate either therapeutically or competitively in the sport of sled hockey.
100% of all donations are used to provide individuals with a disability the opportunity to be a part of a team.
Thank you for your donation.

United Way CampaignUnited Way Please Support Our Program The PittsburghMighty Penguins Sled Hockey organization is registered this year as aUnited Way Contributor's Choice agency (10622447). As a non-profit, 501C3 organization, we strive to provide individuals with disabilities the opportunity to participate in ice hockey via our sled hockey program. We work hard to keep costs to individual players and families to a minimum, but ice hockey is very expensive. Our ice costs are between $100-$325/hour of ice. With three teams practicing for an hour and a half at least once a week, costs add up quickly. In addition, the sleds and sticks that we provide for players to use cost between $650 and $800. We are thrilled that our program is growing with new players joining weekly! Please help us to make sure we can continue to grow! This year when the United Way campaign kicks off at your place of work, please consider putting some of your donation to Contributor's Choice and indicate our program by entering 10622447. Thank you for your support!
