Welcome to the NYIslesScene!
A blog by a long time New York Islanders fan who stays true to the fellas wearing orange, white and blue…but thinks the Islanders organization has some shaping up to do.

On Tuesday night I went to the Special Hockey clinic being held at the City Ice Pavilion in Queens. The kids were moving and grooving out on the ice, and a couple were zoomed around and then thrown like a bowling ball only to slide across the ice on their knees. Each player was given 1 to 1 instruction by volunteer coaches who looked to be having as much fun as the kids. Parents and caregivers were taking pictures and looked so proud of the kids, some who were stepping out on the ice for the first time. When all was said and done the kids were able to keep their equipment which is great! More clinics are in the works to build their roster, for more information check out the American Special Hockey Association (ASHA).
Hockey IS for EVERYONE!
