AZ Ice Peoria welcomes the One Step Bobcats, Arizona’s first ever special hockey team. One Step Beyond, Inc. partnered up with the Arizona Bobcats and AZ Ice to give its members the opportunity to become a part of the hockey community. OSBI aims to empower individuals with intellectual disabilities by helping them participate in a number of programs, now including hockey. One Step Bobcats has 28 participants taking the ice every Tuesday and Thursday morning. Participants suit up in full gear donated entirely by the Arizona hockey community, including the Bobcats and the Arizona Coyotes. In February, One Step Bobcats will participate in its first tournament in Colorado.
