United States Sled Hockey Association



Davenport, IA

Foster the advancement of sled hockey for all individuals, disabled and able bodied, male and female, without prejudice or discrimination.

USSHA is a registered 501(c) (3) non-profit organization that was first formed in 1989 under the name of the American Sled Hockey Association. In 1998, the name was changed to United States Sled Hockey Association to better align the organization with its Olympic counterpart, USA Hockey.

USSHA began sending teams to international competition in 1989, but it was not until 1998 that USSHA was able to send its first team to the Winter Paralympic Games. Team USA finished fifth at the Nagano Games. Two years later in the 2000 World Cup, Team USSHA finished a very disappointing sixth. However, at the 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Paralympic Games, Team USA went from worse to first and was undefeated to win Paralympic GOLD!
