The Washington Ice Dogs give people with physical and developmental disabilities the chance to play ice hockey. Ability is not important, we just ask that the player has a desire to play or learn to play hockey. We have an A team for more advanced players and a B/C team for those learning to skate and working on their skills. We have 2 hours of ice time nearly every Saturday from September to March. But paying for ice for practice is difficult. Ice time is our largest budget item. We have 2 hours of ice time nearly every Saturday from September to March. Every hour of ice is $400. Every weekend is $800. Every month is $3,200. Each season is close to $20,000. Our organization is entirely volunteer run, so donations go entirely to team expenses like ice, tournaments and player development. We believe that the benefits of special hockey are significant and we do not want the cost of playing hockey to prevent players from participating. Your donation will go directly to paying our season's ice time bill, which also helps offset player fees.
