Learn from players on the U.S. National Sled Hockey Team about the sport of sled hockey in this video from “Ice Warriors,” and then use the support materials to learn about the engineering design process. People with different types of disabilities can play sled hockey, including amputees and people born with spina bifida. The game is similar to regulation or NHL ice hockey—called “stand-up hockey” by the sled hockey players—but players sit on sleds with metal skate blades attached and use their arms to move the sleds. Their sticks, one in each hand, have a shooting curve on one end and small picks on the other. Players use the picks to propel themselves around the ice. The rules are the same as ice hockey: move the puck, get in good scoring position, and play good defense. This resource is part of the Adaptive Technologies Collection.
