    Default Sled Hockey The Sport You need to know better

    I was asked the question "What is Sled Hockey?"
    Perhaps, this photo and video link will explain it all to you:



    The Rough Riders of Long Island at West point... oh yes, West point lost!

    Sled Hockey What is it... click this courtesy Video LINK as explained by the Rough Riders leadership: Many other photos also.

    CLICK here: http://www.lisledhockey.org/newweb/video1.htm

    Their mission is to foster, promote and encourage sportsmanship,team work and camaraderie through the sport of sled hockey... specifically aimed at a juvenile and adolescent population of physically and/or mentally challenged athletes.
    There are many locations that have sponsored teams and events ... is there one near you?

    Paralympic sled hockey is a fast paced, exciting sport created for hockey players who have lost the use of their legs. In the 2002 Paralympics in Salt Lake the US team won the Gold. This is a bit...

    Thanks to my sled hockey friends that told me about "Wheelchair Soccer... and the use of powered chairs to push oversized soccer balls like these Ladies...of the "inspired to do organization"...


    Now that's power soccer! Don't mess with these ladies, they will run you right off the court.!

    Naturally, the men have the same kind program... and will compete against any team whether they use a power chair regularly or not like this.

    There are many other sports for the disabled... even snorkling and other water sports....Do you know of a program or athlete that we should know about....let us know OK?

    I was asked to post this "Archery" thread in this topic..
    Archery is naturaly to young and old children... like this.


    Many at this archery school had physical handicaps but, can learn and manage the sport of "Archery"... they deserve a chance.
    Of course, the interest grows as it has at this Central New York school for all ages... boys and girls.


    It is not so dangerous for these girls to use those bows and arrows.

    Naturally the sports clubs offer training and Kids tournaments like this for the more skillful.

    Those simulate targets makes for a good practice... maybe in the PA woods about holiday time. ...

    Yes, they are called "butt scooters"... actually similar to a "movers dolly" .... they sell for about 6 for $25 they look like this:


    They can be self-propelled or with assistant pusher... it's a simple "play" device used in lower grades play periods.... credit for physical education ... sometimes used by youngsters lacking lower extremities ability but have arm strength. The kids love it.... and why not?

    "Play is more than just another "ball game"....for dads to play too. Sometimes an old empty cardboardbox can be a great entertainment toy.... when did you see a kid not tempted to play with one.... at no cost.

    Over funded?... It's cheaper that some quick expenditures for a $40,000.00 blocking sled for a high school team that are made ... isn't it?

    The three ball sympton... is back again...
