Sled Hockey

Capital District Sled Hockey Warriors

Similar to ice hockey, sled hockey is an exciting, competitive full-contact team sport played on ice. In place of skates, players are seated in sleds, and hockey sticks are replaced with picks – shortened hockey sticks (1/3 the length of a regulation hockey stick) with metal teeth at the end. Players use their picks to pass, stick handle, shoot the puck, and propel their sled across the ice. Though the sled is designed for people with lower extremity disabilities, people without disabilities may also participate!

STRIDE’s Capital District Sled Warrior team holds practices on weekends at the Albany County Hockey Facility ice rink throughout the season, with tournaments and games scheduled throughout the late winter and early spring. Some of the bigger tournaments include the NY Empire State Games in Lake Placid; Syracuse and Skaneateles tournament and the Amelia Cup in Springfield, MA.

STRIDE provides equipment including a uniform, helmet, neck guard, shoulder pads, gloves, elbow pads, shin guards, sled, and pick. You must have sturdy shoes or old ice hockey boots (without blades) to protect your feet. For more information on joining the team, please contact STRIDE. Team members are responsible for raising or paying their own travel expenses for all tournaments.

A current (within a calendar year) STRIDE registration form must be on file to participate.
