Sledge hockey is played by those with and without disabilities. Sledge hockey players use lightweight aluminum “sleds” with two skate blades attached to the underside.
Propelling the sled adds a new level of excitement and complexity to a game that is already famed for its fast speed and great teamwork. Players hold a stick in each hand. Each stick has a spiked end and a curved blade on the other. That’s two sticks for pushing the sled across the ice, stick-handling, passing and shooting. It’s a popular parasport for all, and for fans too!
