Donations made by KSA in 1998Updated Sunday January 5, 2014 by Kitchener Sports Association.
Sledge hockey, developed in Scandinavia, has been part of the Canadian sports scene for well over 30 years. An adapted version of regular ice hockey, it has helped meet the recreational, emotional and social needs of physically and developmentally 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.
KSA supports the KW Sidewinders Sledge Hockey Club.
