Special Olympics Washington is beyond excited to announce its partnership with Smartsheet and the Seattle Kraken for the third annual Breaking Ice and Breaking Barriers event at the Kraken Community Iceplex.

Breaking Ice and Breaking Barriers ot only introduces athletes with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) to the exhilarating, fast-paced game of hockey, but it also reminds these athletes of all the things that they can do. From learning the game, practicing their skating skills and making a winning shot, Special Olympics athletes feel that they really belong—both on and off the rink.


But that’s not all! This continued partnership with the Seattle Kraken also shines light on another important principle: bringing greater diversity to the game of hockey.

This partnership with Smartsheet, The Seattle Kraken, and Special Olympics Washington promotes inclusion, and represents a future of a better path forward! Together, we are having informative conversations, raising awareness, and making a difference!

Special Olympics Washington athletes, we invite you to join us for an exciting and invigorating day at the third annual Breaking Ice and Breaking Barriers event on Sunday, March 10, 2024!
