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.

We are here to assist players with transfers from wheelchair to sled, we do our best to empower our participants to be able to transfer on their own.  Safety is our utmost priority for our participant, staff and volunteer.

Sled Hockey will return November 2021!
