*  *  *  SPECIAL HOCKEY PROGRAM OPPORTUNITY AVAILABLE  *  *  *


Over the course of the past three and a half years, Uxbridge Public Schools has forged many new and exciting partnerships with community groups and organizations for children with disabilities. Most recently, we have initiated a partnership with Special Olympics of Massachusetts for Uxbridge, MA. children with disabilities. Well, now, the Uxbridge Public Schools is pleased to bring to your attention the fact that the the Pawtucket Youth Hockey Association
(PYHA) has opened its enrollment in an effort to offer a special hockey program for children with disabilities. The Department of Pupil Personnel Services of the Uxbridge Public Schools wishes to extend this opportunity for your son or daughter with disabilities to participate in youth hockey.

PYHA is proud to host the only ice hockey program in Rhode Island for children with disabilities. Each Saturday from October through March, children ages 5 to 16 with autism, down syndrome, and severe learning disabilities come to Lynch Arena from all parts of Rhode Island and neighboring Massachusetts to have the opportunity to learn the basics of skating and hockey.

PYHA coaches and volunteers donate their time and skills to work with each of these future players in a USA Hockey sanctioned instructional program. All players registered under USA Hockey.
