Sled Hockey

“Put Your Disability on Ice”
Sled hockey is played by a wide range of players with a variety of mobility limitations: amputees, spinal cord injuries, spina bifida, along with anyone who has a disability that limits participation in stand up hockey.

Sled hockey is played like traditional stand up hockey except the players sit in a specially designed bucket seat attached to a lightweight frame with hockey skate blades underneath and propel through the ice with two adaptive hockey sticks.
