Get Involved – Para Hockey
Para Ice Hockey (formerly known as Sledge Hockey) is the Paralympic version of Ice Hockey. Click here more on our programmes and courses.
Here in the UK, it is a fully inclusive sport, where Disabled and Able-Bodied players can compete on the same team. It is only at an International level where players need to have a recognised disability.
The training element will currently be played in our ice arena:
All teams compete in the British Para Ice Hockey League, which runs throughout the Summer months from April to August. Following the League campaign, the teams also compete at an end of season Play-Off tournament in August/September.
Each team trains 12 months of the year, either on a weekly or fortnightly basis and players can train with other teams as well as the team they are registered with.
Each club carries spare equipment for new players to use on taster sessions and the first 2 sessions are usually free of charge. After this, players will need to register with the league either as a “Training Only” player, or a “Full” players, which allows them to take part in league games.
If you are interested in taking part in a training session, to get a feel for the sport, please contact us.
