Our mission at Long Island Sled Hockey, Inc. is to foster, promote and encourage sportsmanship, teamwork and camaraderie through the sport of sled hockey, specifically aimed at a juvenile and adolescent population of physically and/or mentally challenged athletes. 


Inherent in that goal is the development of a sense of self-esteem, pride and friendship within this population. Long Island Sled Hockey, Inc. also focuses on the development and nurturing of positive attitudes in and outside the Long Island community toward those with physical and/or mental handicapping conditions.

March 22nd, 2015 - In Game 6 of a long rivalry, the RoughRiders emerged victorious over the St Peter's Boys HS Hockey team but gained even more respect and friendships through this long running demonstration to the many who come out in support. Thanks Eddie and All at St Pete's.


"On behalf of the rest of the members of the National Hockey League Players' Association (NHLPA), it is my pleasure to inform you that the Long Island Sledge Hockey Program will receive 15 sets of equipment (15 skater sets and sleds) from the NHLPA Goals & Dreams fund. This donation is worth approximately $20,000 – an amount NHLPA Members are proud to invest in this program because of your commitment to helping children participate in the great sport of sledge hockey.

Families in your community are very fortunate to have individuals like yourself who want to enrich the lives of these young children.  We feel that giving children the chance to play hockey is not only important for them to build strong bodies, but also to help build strong minds.

Since its inception in 1999, the NHLPA Goals & Dreams fund has been successful in contributing more than $20-million to grassroots hockey programs around the world. The players’ program has benefited more than 60,000 deserving children in 32 countries." - Matthew Langen, NHLPA.
