There are moments and individuals in all of our lives that impact us forever. We learn about life and ourselves through them. Here at SABAH, we call them gamechangers. Somewhere between skating on the ice, playing on the turf and interacting with others, SABAH’s athletes discover their endless potential. And as we continue to provide these moments to our athletes, we are constantly reminded of how they impact us as well. They, themselves, are the ultimate gamechangers.

Congratulations to our Athlete of the Month for April, Peter Colbey!!

Read more about Peter here -->
SABAH athlete Peter Colbey is energetic, athletic, and FAST! On Saturday mornings at the Hamburg Town Rink, Peter is the speediest of the SABAH athletes as he flies around the rink with great enthusiasm. At just 17 years of age, Peter has been a faithful participant in the Saturday morning program for over 11 years. A tremendously capable skater, Peter challenges his fellow athletes (and volunteers) in Group 3, the rink’s most advanced group, to keep up with him.

Peter is also the entertainer of the Hamburg Rink. With a talent for doing remarkable impersonations, Peter will entertain the group with his lively impressions of Donald Duck and other “celebrities.” Peter is destined to be a star, as he dreams of one day becoming a game show host. His outgoing personality makes Peter a superstar at the Hamburg Town Rink already!

Peter’s energy also extends into SABAH’s other programs, including the Adaptive Ice Hockey program and the Summer Clinics. When it comes to sports, Peter is one of SABAH’s most enthusiastic athletes. In addition to SABAH’s programming, Peter also participates in many of the organization’s special events. By request, Peter is an annual coach at SABAH’s Kickstock Kickball Tournament for team Tom Rennie and the Heartbreakers. A true inspirational leader, Peter drives his team with his passionate “pump up” speeches and clever game strategy.

“Peter is a SABAH athlete that just makes you smile all the time,” states SABAH’s Executive Director, Sheila O’Brien. “He’s out there doing all kinds of impersonations and making jokes, and then he takes off around the rink at lightning speed. He has incredible energy and it spills over to everyone in the rink.” For all of his contributions to SABAH for more than a decade, we are pleased to name Peter Colbey as the 2020 April Athlete of the Month! Congratulations, Peter!!

We always miss you during the off-season......but this year, we miss you more than ever. In fact, we miss everything about you! We miss your high fives, your hugs, fist bumps, and most of all, your "in person" smiles. So, we are already dreaming of the day (not too far in the future...) when we will be back together on the ice. And that means for our next program, our Summer Skate Sessions. We hope you will put these dates on your calendars and get ready to join back together with your SABAH family on the ice. Hang in there everyone!

Hello SABAH Family!!!

We miss everyone! And we thought you might be missing us, too! (especially with everyone being asked to stay home...making us all feel just a little bit lonely) So we wanted to share a quick message from Executive Director Sheila to our entire SABAH family to let everyone know that we can do this together! And, to make things just a little better for all of us, we'd love to hear from you, too. So let us know how you are doing! And, maybe tell us what you liked best about the Celebration on Ice show. As we continue through these next few days or weeks, we will keep in touch with more videos.... so stay tuned! We love our SABAH family!

SABAH is incredibly thankful for the John R. Oishei Foundation, as they have been instrumental to the success of the Adults Fit and Fun program. Because of their generous support, SABAH has the capacity to meet the unique needs of adults challenged by disability in a weekday program offered on ice and a sport court surface during the spring and summer.
