Coulee Region Sled Hockey
Hockey is for everyone!
The Mission of CRSH is to allow individuals with physical challenges to participate in the sport of sled hockey both for recreation and competition. To encourage comradery, sportsmanship, leadership, confidence, a healthy life style, friendship, and fun. It is hoped that participants will learn skills and lessons about life that they will be able to apply in their future employment and as contributing members of our society. No individual will be declined for financial means.
What is sled hockey?
Sled hockey is Paralympic sport that allows those with physical challenges to play the game of hockey. The players use special adaptive sleds with two hockey skates under them and tow shot hockey sticks. One end of the stick has picks to help propel the skater across the ice. The other end looks like a hockey stick and is used to pass and shoot the puck. The rules are the same as regular hockey. If an individual is unable to propel the hockey sled because of their upper body function, they may use a “pusher” to move across the ice, and then pass and shoot.
