Sledge Hockey (also known as Para Ice Hockey) was created to allow players who can’t skate due to a disability, the opportunity to play. Since then many players, both with a disability and able bodied, have discovered what a great sport it is. Our hope is that through the use of BC Hockey sleds and subsequent programming we can generate a Provincial interest and commitment to the sport.

Who Can Play the Game

Para hockey in BC and the Yukon is open to male and female able bodied and disabled players of all ages. Only in Paralympics and World Championship competitions governed by the IPC do the rules prohibit able-bodied players.

BC Hockey has acquired a number of sleds and sticks for utilization in various sledge hockey programs throughout the province. These sleds are adjustable and come in a variety of sizes to accommodate all athletes.  Minor Hockey Associations and community groups who are interested in borrowing the equipment for a "Try It" event should fill out the following application:
