Sunday the 3rd of February, the ice time for the Novice team changed from 1.15pm to 9.45am!!!
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!!!
On Saturday November 17th at East End Arena Teo received a brand new Sledge (razor from Peter Jordan and his teammates); Teo was kept in the dark regarding this surprise and was overjoyed with the teams kindness;
Teo became the first sledge hockey player to receive a direct donation from a local community group; Teo used the new sledge on Sunday and loved the feel of his new piece of equipment;
On behalf of Society for Manitobans with Disabilities sledge hockey program and the Roy family thank you for your kindness.
The 3rd sledge to physical literacy day camp was held August 20-24th at the St.James Civic Centre with a total of 26 sledge hockey players taking part in a week full of sledge hockey. The novice group which consisted of children had the largest group ever for the camp with 16 attending; We also were blessed with the presence of Tucker who came from the USA to participate in the camp; He was so committed to attending he missed an entire week of school; USA start school a week earlier (ouch).
The week was extremely busy and filled with life skill building opportunities from learning new adapted sports such as fencing, badminton and tennis to taking responsibility to dress independently for hockey.
An exciting element of this year’s camp was having 8 female athletes participate. There is a definite growth in female sledge hockey in Manitoba;
The camp’s success can be directly associated with parent and player commitments and the strong support from Society for Manitoban’s with Disabilities;
See you all in October
