On December 31st the Long Island Rebels hosted the Genesis School for Autistic Children for a holiday party that included ice skating & refreshments. Rebel players, parents, and staff volunteered to help the students have a safe time on and off the ice.

This year the students families were invited to also participate in the skating session. "It was easy taking pictures because their smiles light up the place" said a parent. The smiles were big on and off the ice as many parents got to watch while the students were assisted ice skating by Rebel players.

On December 28th 2004 the Long Island Rebels and the Dix Hills Ice Rink hosted students and staff from the Genesis School for Autistic Children. Rebel players and coaches volunteered their time to help 13 children with special needs feel safe and confident while ice skating.

A great time was had by all. Some staff members from the school were given a much-deserved break to skate on their own, while over 30 of our team members from the Squirt, Pee-Wee, Bantam, and Midget levels assisted the students on the ice. While the staff was grateful, the children skated with huge smiles. The hockey players also had a great time, and many of the younger players stepped up to the opportunity and challenge of doing a service to their community and their peers. They exchanged sneakers for skates, laced them up, and even took them off and laced new ones on when they noticed that the skates were too big.
