Para Ice Hockey Resource
Para Ice Hockey Coaching Resource
SportAbility’s open access Para-Ice Hockey coaching guide is designed to empower sledge hockey coaches, facilitators, and athletes with general information, along with a set of individual skills based drills, and team/program based drills that can be modified and used to deliver Para Ice Hockey (Sledge Hockey) in a fun and social environment.
The Sledge Hockey coaching resource is available for download here.
The guide is simple to use and can enhance Physical Literacy within your Para Ice hockey program, club, or community. The drills (consisting of fun games and team-based drills) can all be adapted to suit the needs of your participants. This resource provides detailed information with diagrams to clearly explain the drills and will be supplemented with demonstration videos of each individual skill and team drill.
This initiative is made possible through funding from ViaSport and the Government of British Columbia.
