Corrine Wengi a current member of the Women's National sledge hockey team will be conducting ice sessions at U of M for players of all ages and abilities; these ice sessions are not part of the current ice programming operated by SMD or Sledge Hockey Manitoba. Therefore all players must have their own sledge, sticks and appropriate safety gear. These ice sessions will focus on skill development, fun and drills which will assist with improving an individual's game.
There will be a cost associated with this ice which will depend on the number of ice sessions booked.
For further information please contact Corrine at # 204 510 6924 or firstname.lastname@example.org
The 2019 Sledge to Physical Literacy Day Camp was a huge success; there were over 24 players of all ages who participated in the only accessible Sports day camp offered for children and youth with various abilities; the main focus is to learn sledge hockey, however the players get much, much more. Players experience baseball, w/c fencing, archery, swimming and other team building games. Players experience greater periods of independence and make friendships that will hopefully last a very long time.

The Manitoba SledgeHammers competed in the Hendrickson Foundation sledge hockey tournament in Blaine Minnesota; this team was constructed with players from Manitoba, Kenora and Langdon North Dakota; this team battled hard and was led by future all-stars, Alyssa White (currently on the Women's National team, Cooper Vint, Issac Vint, Paul Hamm, Logan Johnston, Elijah Armbruster, Natalia Dobbs, Evan Hesom and Tucker Olson; this team led by Kevin Hamm, and Les McCrae motiviated this squad all the way to the finals; the game plan to keep the highest scoring team off the score sheet was a miracle in the making; strong defensive performances by Alyssa and Cooper kept Wisconsin's leading scorer off the score sheet for a period and a half; it was great to watch the opposing coach squirm as he had to change his coaching tactics. in the end the Sledge Hammers who were exhausted fell 3-1 to the highest scoring team in the tournament. in our opinion the team was the champions;
This Monday a mix of Intermediate and Advanced players had the opportunity to play against the squadron 402 “City of Winnipeg”, of the 17 Wing, from the military group.
The wanted to recognize the International Day of Person with Disabilities (December 3rd), but also put a big emphasis on fitness. They said this was an excellent chance for the squadron members to bond while being active.
They collected 150 pounds of food for Winnipeg Harvest and raised money, which they donated to Sledge Hockey Manitoba.
Everyone had a smile on their face during the entire game, so much positive energy, great crowed and a hard battled fun game!
Sledge Hockey Manitoba want to thank 402 "City of Winnipeg" and everyone else for attending this great event!!!
