    Hello, name is Jamie Bindert and I am an occupational therapist at the Bird/Morgan School in East Rochester. We are a Monroe#1 BOCES school serving special needs students ages 5-14.
    I would like to know what ages requirements you have and if there are restrictions on the child’s diagnosis. At Bird/Morgan we have students with ED, Autism, and developmental delays. We are planning to send home information on the Ice Cats Hockey program to students that may be interested.

      Hi Jamie
      Thank you for reaching out to our organization. In response to your questions Rochester Special Hockey is open to all individuals age 4 thru 52 who wish to learn and play the game of ice hockey. Our program works with individuals with developmental, cognitive, and learning disabilities. Our mission is to work on socialization, teamwork, responsibility and other areas also providing therapeutic value to all. Our roster currently includes players with Autism, Down Syndrome, ED and other issues. We will teach players to skate thru the use of aids and assist from coaches. I know one concern for many is the cost of the program. We have done much over the years in taking that out of the equation; our registration cost is $150 which is for 20 weeks of ice and much more fun. We will work on providing most of the equipment to each person always looking to safety for all. For further information I can be reached at -585-723-8996 to discuss. We do have our initial registration taking place this Friday the 14th at Bill Gray’s Iceplex from 6:30 to 8:30. Many of our coaches and families will be on hand to help answer any questions. Hopefully we will see you and your families who are interested and would like more info.

      Thank you for your interest – hope this helps
      Tom Simmons – Rochester Special Hockey
