Sled Hockey Practice
WASA is one of 10 organizations across the country that received a $25,000 grant through USA Hockey and Labatt’s Pass It Forward initiative to develop our WASA sled hockey program in 2016.
Sled hockey is a sit-down version of ice hockey for players whose disability prevents them from playing stand-up hockey. The difference is equipment. Sled hockey players use sleds that are usually made of light-gauge aluminum, consisting of a customized bucket to sit in. A frame supports the bucket, legs and feet, and is mounted on two skate blades attached under the bucket. Straps keep the player secure in the sled. Instead of one hockey stick, players use two for propulsion, passing and shooting.
