Flour City Helps Welcome Special Players Back to Hockey

Flour City Hockey Club is pleased to announce a partnership with Rochester Special Hockey to welcome players with developmental disabilities back to the ice.

The “Return to Hockey” event will be held on Thursday, September 2 at 8:00 pm at Paul Louis Arena.

Rochester Special Hockey was forced to suspend operations during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic and many Ice Cat players have been unable to play hockey for over a year. This event will provide an opportunity for players to lace up their skates once again and hit the ice as they prepare for their upcoming season.

Flour City Hockey Club has donated ice time for the event and will provide volunteer support and snacks for Ice Cat players and their families. Anyone wishing to participate in the event should contact Flour City Hockey Club at flourcityhockey@gmail.com.
