Description & Services
Information Did you know that Sledge Hockey became a Paralympic sport in 1994? Since then, Team Canada has won a Paralympic gold medal in 2006, and a world championship gold medal in 2008. Come try this awesome sport that is building in Nova Scotia! Join Dave Waters, a member of the new Provincial sledge hockey team, in this 5-week development program. 
 
Week 1: *arrive by 5:30pm*. Intro to sledge, parts of the sled, how to get in, simple drills, and a 20-minute scrimmage. 
Weeks 2-5: *arrive by 5:45pm*. We will build on old drills, add new skills, and a 20-minute scrimmage. 
 
All players must have full hockey gear (full shield helmet, gloves, pants, elbow pads, shoulder pads, knee pads, and neck guard). If you need hockey gear, contact us at 902-541-1343 and we will see how we can help. Sticks and sledges will be provided. 
 
Players with a disability may need to have someone who can help get them on the ice, especially kids. If you have a disability, or are registering a child with a disability, please call us before registering so we can arrange a free assessment. We strive to make sure everybody gets to play! 
 
Open to male and female able-bodied and disabled players. 
 
For more information, contact the recreation department.
Eligibility Ages: 10 year(s) and up
