Sledge Hockey

Sledge hockey, also known as Para Ice Hockey is a popular winter Paralympic sport with many similarities to ice hockey. It is an inclusive sport that allows those with physical impairments to play ice hockey. Instead of skates, players use a sledge with hockey skate blades on the bottom.  The sticks used in sledge hockey have a curved blade similar to ice hockey sticks but have metal teeth at the opposite end to dig into the ice for steering and propulsion.
