The Sledge try it events are run by the Edmonton Adaptive Sports Association (EASA) in order to provide youth (grades 7-12) with the opportunity to experience the sport of sledge hockey. The Sledge Demo "Try it Event" provides any group or organization the opportunity to experience the sport of sledge hockey. The aim of the program includes aspects such as promoting physical activity, building teamwork and promoting overall well being for participants. The participants will have fun while learning the fundamentals of the sport (e.g. skating, passing, shooting) in a recreational environment. The program will take place at a community arena as arranged by EASA or the group. Members of EASA will be on hand to facilitate programming including coaches and/or players (subject to availability). The Edmonton Adaptive Sports Association will provide the sledges and sticks for the participants to use, each participant must provide their own personal safety equipment (e.g. hockey helmet with a cage is recommended & hockey gloves or other protective gloves). All participants must complete and return the waiver on the day of the sledge demo.
The cost of a program session is $200.00, this includes the use of sledges and sticks for the duration of your session. EASA will provide one or more players to run the demo. Provide available ice times to EASA, our group will schedule the demo for you based on availability. Your group is responsible for arranging their own transportation to and from the arena for participants.
