The South and North Team schedules are available, South now has an arena!

The North and South schedules are now available on Our USA Hockey site.

The South Team will meet each week at the Minnesota Made Ice Center. This site is so new it doesn’t appear in arena listings, Google, or online phone directories!  The Minnesota Curling Club uses this site and they’ve provided a drawing of it. It’s at 7300 Bush Lake Road, Edina, MN 55439, north of 494 and west of Normandale in an industrial park area.

The South Team start times are most often noon, occasionally 12:30, and once at 1:00 pm. The first three are at noon. The North team starts at 6 pm with one 5:50 exception.

MN Special Hockey at ARC Fall Fun Fest

MN Special Hockey will exhibit at the ARC Greater Twin Cities Fun Fest: :: KARE 11 TV - Community Calendar

Put more fun in your life with ideas and information from Arc Greater Twin Cities Fall Fun Fest. Enjoy live music and visit exhibits by recreation providers to get the lowdown on leisure activities throughout the Twin Cities. Wednesday, September 27, 6:30-8:30pm at St.Louis Park Senior High School, 6425 W. 33rd St., St Louis Park. The event is Free. For more information call, 952-920-0855 or
The booth is titled "MN Special Hockey Association/MN Sled Hockey Association". Look for it and join the Fun!

PS. Oddly enough, the ARC website doesn't have any information on this. I suspect they're running into the common problem of a 'content management system' that requires costly specialty services to use and update.
