The Capital City Condors are ice hockey teams for youth who are unable to play on any other hockey team due to a disability. Players are ages 6 and up, of all ability levels and are each given a high degree of personal supervision by the Condors on-ice coaches.
Some players receive one-on-one attention throughout each session. A “game” consists of on-ice warm-ups and drills, followed by an inter-squad game. Fun, skill development, sportsmanship and teamwork are highly emphasized. Youth of ALL hockey abilities are welcome – the ability to skate at the beginning of the season is not a requirement for registration. The program is highly rewarding experience for the players, parents and volunteers as children, youth, and young adults who only dream of playing on a hockey team see their dreams come true and their abilities progress.
The Condors are thrilled to have been able to establish teams in Kanata, ON, Rockland, ON, and Cambridge, ON ( visit www.thebladeshockey.com ) and look forward to bringing teams to Carleton Place and Gatineau in the Fall of 2013!
All of the Condors’ coaches and administrators are volunteers who are highly motivated to provide a quality hockey experience for these special youth. All volunteers who work directly with the Condors players are required to undergo a mandatory police check. Parents are not permitted on-ice with their child, but can volunteer off-ice or for another Condors team if they wish.
The Condors have been extremely fortunate to have the incredible support of our Honourary Captain, Matt Carkner, formerly of the Ottawa Senators! In his absence, Kyle Turris and his fiancée, Julie Fuller, have become full-fledged members of the Condors family and are well-loved by all! The Condors are deeply grateful to Matt & Kary and Kyle & Julie for all the time and support they give to the Condors players and their families!
The Capital City Condors hockey club is a member of Special Hockey International.
