Alyssa a member of the sledge hockey community recently had surgery which will put her out of commission for the remainder of the hockey season; Alyssa is a current member of the Woman's National team and player in the Advanced and Intermediate level in Manitoba. Alyssa is currently in children's hospital recovering. I am sure she would be pleased to see or hear from current players as she regains her strength. If interested in visiting Alyssa please contact me directly and i will provide you with the floor and area numbers;
On behalf of the Sledge Hockey Community we hope you have a speedy recovery and look forward to seeing you at the rink before the season ends.
Wheelchair Basketball sent a small but talented team to Western Canada to participate in a tournament; The team comprised of some of our sledge hockey players went undefeated capturing the championship; Led by the strong play of Bernard, Teo and Bethany this crew showcased their talent and demonstrated they will be something of a force come the Canada Winter games which will take place in a few years; Coach Jarrett who has been with the program for 6 years ensured this talented group of athletes was prepared and ready to take on all comers;On behalf of the sledge hockey community we congratulate you on your strong showing;
Sledge players Logan, Noel and Tristan took part in the first Lego Club for children and youth; we were excited to have 10 Lego builders join our group and look forward to the next session in late November; The Lego club is an excellent chance to be creative, meet new friends and try new and different Lego projects; If interested in joining our new club please contact Jaylene directly.
BUILD ON !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
On Saturday November 9th 2019 Issac V received a pleasant surprise from Peter Jordan and his fellow teammates; On this crisp early morning Issac arrived at the rink expecting to participate in a practice session with his fellow sledge hockey players only to find out he was the recipient of a brand new sledge (razor). He was totally caught off guard and was so excited to receive this gift; Issac has been playing sledge hockey since the age of 5 years old and has been using borrowed equipment; Issac at the age of 9 is becoming a top sledge hockey athlete in the Manitoba program. With his own Razor Issac will continue forward with his desire to play with the advanced team, then Provincial squad and who knows perhaps a para Olympian;
This is the second sledge Peter and his teammates have donated to a selected athlete and their kindness and support have meant a great deal to the athletes they have touched; This group of men have gone the extra mile and has not gone unnoticed; Gentleman on behalf of the Sledge Hockey Community THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!
Alyssa and Corrine traveled east to participate with the women's national sledge hockey team; both players recorded an assist each and helped lead their team to victory over the Atlantic team sweeping their competition in the series; great job !!!!
