Hello, My name is Steve Tofaute and I am the Mid-American Regional Director for ASHA. I have been involved with special hockey since 2004.I worked for two years to get a program started in the Indianapolis metro area. The time I was planning I was guided by multiple folks with programs already in existence. My predecessor was the one I went to and visited to see how a thriving special hockey program looked, ran and what to expect. The Indianapolis hockey community has welcomed us with open arms! I have been a coach, cheerleader, equipment manager, fund raiser and president of the Indy Special Hockey Association and have done nothing but learned from all our players, parents and other organizations. I have established an ongoing relationship with our USHL and ECHL organizations and have cultivated fund raising efforts with multiple organizations. I hope to be as big a help with any other forming organizations as the existing ones have been to me. This is a "we" proposition to start a special hockey program and I hope be a helpful resource for you in the near future. 

Thank you for this opportunity,
Steve Tofaute
