Sledge hockey is one of the few all-inclusive sports, as both able-bodied and disabled players play on the same team. The sport follows the same rules as ice hockey, with the only difference being the players sit in adapted sledges. It maintains the speed, skill and hard-hitting intensity of ice hockey.
Sledge hockey can help improve balance and mobility, as well as upper body and arm strength.
