Give It a Go! Para Hockey
May 1 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
Para Ice Hockey (formerly known as Sledge Hockey) is an adapted version of stand up ice hockey. Participation in BC is open to both people with physical disabilities and people who are able bodied. Instead of skates, players sit in specially designed sleds. Players move around on the ice using two sticks, which have a spike-end for pushing and a blade-end for shooting. Upper body strength, core stability, and finger dexterity are necessary for full, independent participation in the sport. Adaptations such as push bars, anti tippers, chest straps, and higher backs on the sledges are available for those who may need the extra support.
The first event is in the Comox Valley while the Second event will be hosted in Parksville.
