The Black Swamp Ice Frogs is a special needs co-ed no contact Association of Special Needs Hockey program for ages 5 and up. BSIF provides individuals with physical and/or developmental disabilities the opportunity to learn to skate and participate in the sport of ice hockey.

The program develops dependability, self-reliance, focus and personal accountability.

Fees for the program include practice ice time, skates, equipment, instruction and coaching. The BSIF is open to anyone with any level of skating ability – from the non-skater to the experienced.

The season will kick off Sept. 25 with a “Get to Know Us Skate” at the Slater Family Ice Arena at Bowling Green State University. Check in at 4:30 p.m. and skate with the team and coaches from 5-6 p.m. This is open to anyone who would like to give the Black Swamp Ice Frogs a try.
