The mission of this association is to organize, administer, and promote special ice hockey for the communities of Western Pennsylvania regardless of sex, race, creed, religion, and/or financial situation. WPSHA will try to provide the best possible experience for all involved by encouraging, developing and advancing the core values adopted from USA Hockey and/or American Special Hockey Association ASHA. WPSHA will also be bound by the operating rules of the disabled hockey leagues in which we decide to participate. To achieve this mission WPSHA will work:
To educate and encourage all individuals with developmental and physical disabilities to participate in the sport of ice hockey within an environment that is adapted to the levels of the athletes participating.
To use the game of ice hockey to assist individuals with disabilities in their development of dependability, self confidence, improve concentration and personal accountability which will help them become successful both on and off the ice.
To encourage and educate the general public about how adapted sports for people with disabilities will promote social awareness and the development of physical disabilities.
