Exciting news as the Long Island Blues will be attending their first international tournament in Toronto, Canada.
2019 marks the 25th Anniversary of the SHI tournament which had it’s start with the Gateway Locomotives hosting the Grandravine Tornadoes in 1994. Grandravine Special Hockey is proud to be the host this 25th anniversary and welcomes all special hockey teams from across North America and Europe to join in celebrating this special event.
A fun-filled practice is in store for all as the Blues welcome the St. John the Baptiste J.V. Hockey team for a scrimmage at our practice on 3/17/19.
The Long Island Blues is a Not-for-Profit 501C3 ice hockey organization for children and young adults with developmental disabilities such as Downs Syndrome, Autism, ADD, ADHD etc. Our program is open to players both male and female who are ineligible to participate in an existing organization due to his or her disability.
The program teaches skating and hockey skills, as well as gives the player the opportunity to play on a team sport. Prior skating or hockey experience is not required. We use the game of ice hockey to assist individuals with a disability to be more successful both within and outside a hockey environment.
Our season runs from October through March and consists of three monthly practices, visiting team games and tournaments with other Special Hockey Teams. We also celebrate together with a holiday and end of year party.
