About sled hockey:
Just as in ice hockey, sled hockey is played with six players (including a goalie) at a time. Players propel themselves on their sledge by use of spikes on the ends of two three foot long sticks, enabling a player to push himself as well as shoot and pass ambidextrously.
Rinks and goals are regulation Olympic-size, and games consist of three 15 minute stop time periods.
Open to Adult/Junior male and female athletes with: amputation/limb loss, spinal cord injury/wheelchair-users and cerebral palsy/brain injury/stroke.
