DEI Statement

At Hammerheads Sled Hockey of Philadelphia, we proudly align our organization with our mission to empower the physically disabled through barrier-free access to the competitive sport of sled hockey. As a non-profit 501(c)(3) entity, our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion is not just a slogan; it’s deeply ingrained in our purpose and daily operations.

Our mission to promote skill development, fitness, sportsmanship, and personal improvement within a team sport transcends any physical limitations. We believe that every individual, regardless of their abilities, deserves the opportunity to excel and thrive. Sled hockey becomes a powerful catalyst for positive change, breaking down barriers and fostering a sense of achievement that extends far beyond the ice rink.

Our commitment to equity is unwavering, as we provide all essential equipment to ensure that financial constraints never hinder anyone from joining our ranks. We level the playing field so that everyone has an equal shot at success and fulfillment.

Inclusion, too, is central to our ethos. We work diligently to create an environment where all players and their peers with physical limitations feel welcomed, accepted, and valued. The bonds formed within our community are built on a foundation of respect, support, and the celebration of each individual’s unique contributions.

At Hammerheads Sled Hockey of Philadelphia, diversity, equity, and inclusion are not just ideals but the very essence of our identity. Together, we enable the physically disabled to break free from limitations, to grow as athletes and individuals, and to join a supportive community that stands together, united by our shared love for athletics and the belief that every member has an important role to play in our team’s success and our collective journey of empowerment.
