I play for the Colorado Avalanche B sled hockey team. I have been playing sled hockey for 8 years now. I am so glad I found a sport i could play, where i could have fun and just be myself. My team travels about 5 times a year. All the money i raise, helps my team travel (hotel and airfare costs), pays for Ice time, get new jerseys, and equipment. Looking forward to another great season. My team has won the Sled Classic Championships two years in a row 2016-17, 2017-18. We got 1st place in league play for PSHL 2017-18 and 2nd in PSHL in 2018-19. My team heads to Nationals in Flordia April 4-7th. I wouldn't be where I am today, without everyone's support. Info about my club is below.

What is sled hockey? Sled hockey was developed to give disabled athletes an avenue to participate in the game of hockey. Players sit in a bucket mounted frame, on two blades approximately 5 inches off the ice and use two half size sticks to propel themselves forward. While played differently, sled hockey has most of the same rules, and all of the same excitement. I encourage you to go to https://www.coloradosledhockey.org or google search sled hockey to see what sled hockey brings to these athletes.
