The mission of the Jr Tigers Sled Hockey program is to promote and develop the health and success of athletes with disabilities, through the exhilarating sport of sled hockey. Our program fosters skill, development and leadership while encouraging team building and sportsmanship amongst the players.
Sled Hockey is a special program mainly for disabled athletes, but anyone can play. Sled Hockey offers players with mobility limitations, amputees, Cerebral Palsy, Multiple Sclerosis, spinal injuries and able-bodied people with knee, leg or hip injuries the opportunity to play hockey.
While there is not an upper age limit for sled hockey, players must be at least 7 yrs old to participate. Practices and/or games are held nearly every weekend during the regular hockey season so there is lots of ice time.
The CSAHA Sled Hockey Programs will be run in accordance with the USA Hockey's American Development Model (ADM).
Our season runs from late September to March. One practice or game per week with the possibility of one tournament.
Practices will be conducted in shared ice format and in accordance with USA Hockey's ADM.
