Hendrickson Foundation

A nonprofit organization

Hockey is for Everyone!

The Hendrickson Foundation seeks to enrich the lives of individuals with disabilities, and their families, through the game of hockey. 

Our focus is to make hockey accessible for ALL who want to play the game. By supporting adaptive and Warrior hockey programs’ growth and participation nationwide, we aim to break barriers and promote inclusivity in the game.

More than just a game. 

The values of life gained by lessons through sport affect both the individual and their families. The sport challenges and develops players as individuals and athletes; it promotes physical and mental health, as well as sportsmanship, camaraderie, self-confidence and a sense of belonging. For many of these athletes it's the end of retreating inward and the beginning of reaching out socially to participate, create relationships, and have some fun!

“I am a Hockey Player” alumni Sebastien from the Minnesota Wild Sled hockey team continues to break barriers with his positivity and perseverance. Sebastien and his family represent all of the athletes we support who live with daily challenges, and the families beside them who navigate a path of adversity with unrelenting courage. Keep chasing your dreams and inspiring others along the way Sebastien! 💪Hockey Changes Lives®
