Special Needs Ice Hockey Team Forming in Pittsburgh

I just saw this bit about a special needs ice hockey team on the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette website.

An ice hockey team, the Steel City Icebergs, is being formed for players with autism, Down syndrome and developmental delays. The announcement was made by the Greater Pittsburgh Special Hockey Association, a division of USA Hockey and the American Special Hockey Association.

The first registration session will be on June 6 at the Robert Morris University Island Sports Center. For more information, email samaust@zoominternet.net.
