WHO CAN PLAY?

The Columbus Blades program is for youth, males, and females who have a physical disability limiting one’s ability to play ice hockey in a standing position. Most sled players are able to propel their manual wheelchair and sit upright with minimal to no external support. If you are not sure whether your child can sit in a sled to participate, contact us and we will give it a try.

If a player is unable to propel their sled, a pusher bar is placed on the back of the sled and a “pusher” is assigned to that player. A pusher is an able-bodied skater with hockey knowledge. If a player has trouble with balancing their sled or cannot get up after falling to one side, lateral anti-tippers may be an option. Our staff includes people with experience in problem solving most player needs: including holding the hockey sticks, positioning, and seating.
