Pillo Hockey was the very first sport introduced in the Division of Recreation Special Needs Sports Program on November 9, 2013 to be exact.

According to the Division, since then it has been an incredible nine years of sports for their athletes as the Special Needs Sports Program continues to expand and make great memories.

Next year, the tenth anniversary, will be special, the Division said.
