Sledge hockey, developed in Sweden by two men in the 1960's who wanted to still
play hockey despite their physical disabilities, has been part of the Canadian sports
scene for 30 years. An adapted version of regular ice hockey, it has helped meet the
challenged children, teens and adults.
Sledge hockey players sit on a light-weight sledge that has skate blades attached to
the bottom. They carry two short hockey sticks. One end has a blade for handling
and shooting the puck. Metal picks attached to the other end enable players to push
themselves across the ice. Other than this special equipment, regular hockey gear
and rules apply.
