AHIHA Deaf and Hard of Hearing Hockey School Celebrates 45th Anniversary

USA Deaf HockeyBENSENVILLE, Ill., May 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Founded in 1973 by National Hockey League Hall of Fame member Stan Mikita, and Chicago businessman Irv Tiahnybik, the AHIHA Deaf and Hard of Hearing Hockey School is hosting its 45th annual week-long hockey school for deaf and hard of hearing athletes on June 9-16, 2018 at the Edge Ice Arena, 735 E. Jefferson St., Bensenville, IL.

The AHIHA Deaf and Hard of Hearing Hockey School is one of the most unique training and development camps employing active on ice instruction to develop hockey skills of deaf and hard of hearing players through use of innovative communication techniques and on-ice interpreters. This progressive approach enables players who are either lip readers or signers (use sign language) to fully engage with coaches and other players during practices and games. A secondary — but no less important — goal of the School is to provide an opportunity for players to develop confidence to tackle longer term life goals.
