The Barnes Center at the Arch invites you to join us for Inclusive Hockey Day at the Tennity Ice Skating Pavilion. Participants have the opportunity to try sled hockey, stand-up/special hockey, and learn more about our new Inclusive Hockey Club. All equipment is provided and no experience is necessary! This event is open to all members of the Syracuse University and SUNY ESF communities.

About Sled Hockey

Sled hockey is an adaptive form of hockey in which players sit in specially designed sleds that sit on top of two hockey skate blades. Sled hockey follows most of the typical hockey rules but allows players with physical disabilities and mobility issues to participate. Players have a pair of sticks with picks attached to the ends that serve the dual purpose of helping them play the puck and moving themselves around the ice. Players that do not have the upper body strength to propel themselves may receive assistance from a “pusher” that helps move them around the ice.

About Special Hockey

Special hockey is a form of stand-up ice hockey developed specifically for athletes with a developmental disability or cognitive disorder. Special hockey emphasizes fun, teamwork, and social interaction and allows participants the opportunity to be part of a team. Players typically wear standard hockey equipment and play games with modified rules (no offsides, icing, penalties, or keeping score).
