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!  


A day in the life of a sled hockey family | Hess family feature

The Hess Family opened their home and shared a glimpse into their lives; and their perseverance and spirit shines. Isaac Hess is a 13 year old forward on the Minnesota sled hockey team. Born prematurely and with some medical complexities, Isaac is a pure example of our mantra, "adapt and overcome", something he and his family have had to do his whole life. Equipped with dedicated work ethic, relentless positivity, Isaac has seized the opportunity to play hockey and found himself a TEAM. Isaac and his family represent all of the athletes with "stuff", and the families beside them who navigate a path of adversity with unrelenting courage. Hockey Changes Lives®
