About USVHA

Mission

To promote the growth and coordinate the activities of volt hockey in the United States

History

The United States Volt Hockey Association was founded in 2022 by the Boston Self Help Center (BSHC) to serve as the main governing and organizational body for volt hockey in the US. Originally created in Denmark in the 1990s, volt hockey has since become a popular adaptive sport for people with physical disabilities across Europe, Canada, and now here in the United States. With the help of local and national news stations, Northeastern University, and other disability non-profits, volt hockey is quickly gaining attention as another opportunity for people with disabilities to participate in sports.  

Help Boston Whiplash Get to Volt Hockey World Cup!

Join us in supporting the Boston Whiplash volt hockey team as we aspire to compete at the Volt Hockey World Cup in Gävle, Sweden this September! This tournament is the pinnacle of volt hockey, attracting teams from Canada, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, and Germany. As the only active volt hockey team in the United States, this would give us the opportunity to represent our country at the World Cup.

“I love volt hockey because I am free to be myself and I feel like I can actually do something good as an equal team member."

Vivienne Liedtke, 13

“Going to the World Cup in Sweden not only helped us grow as players learning the game, it was an amazing opportunity to get to play on a world stage."

Desi Forte, 36

It’s a perfect sport for me because it’s basically like driving my own power chair in a more competitive form."

Marley Robinson, 22
