The One Step Sharks are one of the official Adaptive Hockey Teams associated with the National Hockey League, the San Jose Sharks, and the American Special Hockey Association. Our team is comprised of approximately 25 players with different abilities, including Autism, Cerebral Palsy, and Hearing and Visual Impairments.

We are looking for compassionate volunteers who love both Hockey and helping people succeed. Time commitments can vary, but we essentially need your commitments to attend MOST ALL practices every Wednesday from 11AM-12PM starting October 5, 2022 and ending on February 22, 2023.

Volunteers will help to assist the Team Members to learn how to skate, skills and drills, and how to play a scrimmage match. Volunteers may have the opportunity to join the team in the VIP suite at a San Jose Hockey game at the end of the season. Volunteers might also have the opportunity to interface with members of the San Jose Sharks Organization.

Because we work with vulnerable populations, Volunteers must pass a background check and attend special training regarding the rights of people with disabilities and our responsibilities when working with them.

Mission Statement

Our Mission is to provide dynamic programs and services to individuals who have intellectual disabilities and their families so they may achieve their goals and become fully participating members of our communities.

Description

The founding of One Step Beyond, Inc in 2002 was inspired by one family’s need to provide a program for their daughter, Dylan, and many of her peers, who were searching for a post-High School program. They envisioned a program that would allow their sons and daughters who had intellectual disabilities the opportunities required and desired to grow in skills, personal relationships, and inclusion in their community. One Step Beyond launched in 2003 with 16 participants in a small neighborhood location and has now grown to answer the needs of more than 450 individuals who have intellectual disabilities in four locations.

Our focus has been to open our arms to individuals and their families who seek our programs and continue to live up to our name by going One Step Beyond the status quo for programs that serve individuals who have intellectual disabilities.
