Sled hockey (also called ‘Sledge hockey’ outside the U.S.) is an adaptive form of ice hockey for youth and adults who cannot skate in a standing position due to a physical disability. Players sit in ‘bucket seats’ that sit on top of two hockey skate blades. There are two sticks for each player. These modified sticks have a hockey skate blade on one end for hitting the puck and metal pics on the other end for propelling the player.

Charleston Thunder Sled Hockey is a non travel, noncompetitive team. We practice at the South Charleston Memorial Ice Arena at RHL Boulevard, near Target.
