The Arizona Redhawks are a Junior A Tier III Ice Hockey Team located in Peoria that is making a commitment to the autism community. They are a branch of the Western States Hockey League (WSHL) and are a part of a growing league that reaches from Kansas to the West Coast. The organization is dedicated to providing a superior team-oriented environment that supports the highest level of development for each player.
John Guy, who is the Director of Operations and Marketing of the AZ Redhawks, has collaborated with ASAT in the past. He became inspired by ASAT’s mission and website after learning that his grandson had been diagnosed with autism. ASAT is grateful to John Guy for his continued support and to this great team and league for raising funds and for promoting autism science-based treatments throughout their upcoming season. John has been instrumental in working with ASAT to broaden autism awareness and develop future ideas to support ASAT and the autism community.
The 2014-2015 junior hockey season will begin early September 2014 with games in numerous cities including, Dallas, Boulder, Long Beach, and Las Vegas.
