Sled Hockey August 10th, 2012

For those ice hockey lovers RHISP offers sled hockey to a variety of individuals with different disabilities!  Majority of the rules that apply to ice hockey also apply to sled hockey, on exception of the modifications to equipment.  Major modifications in sled hockey refer to players sitting in designed sleds that have to ice skating blades on the bottom, instead of one stick players are allowed two sticks that have pics on the handle side of the stick to help create momentum, and the major modification to goalies is the back of their gloves are outfitted with pics instead of just their stick. 

Sled hockey can be played on majority of all rinks, however, there are only a few in the United States designed for sled hockey in mind. Specific modifications to the rink include allowing players sleds to go right into the bench area.  In order to do this the bench area is made of ice on the floor and instead of boards, clear plexiglass is used to allow players to stay in the game.
