Sled hockey is a high contact Paralympic team sport typically played by male and female athletes with a physical disability in the lower limbs and follows most of the typical ice hockey rules with some equipment modifications.

Players sit in custom designed sleds that sit on top of two hockey skate blades. There are two sticks for each player that have metal picks on the butt end for players to propel themselves. Goalies wear basically the same equipment but do make modifications to the glove.

The Palm Beach Tiger Sharks, our local sled hockey program, practices at Palm Beach Skate Zone, 8125 Lake Worth Road, Lake Worth, FL 33467. For more information about the Tiger Sharks sled hockey team and how to get involved, please contact Daniella Robbins at
