Off and Running
The 20/21 season is off and running to a great start. Practices are running smoothly people are sweating and skating hard.
The SESHL tournament weekends are posted on our calendar as well as the USA Hockey Disabled Festivle. Lets hope and pray this pandemic dies down and we are able to have a full season. Lets bring that trophy back to NORTH Carolina, as right now South Carolina are the defending Champs.
Sleds are usually made of light-gauge aluminum, consisting of a customized bucket to sit in. A backrest can be used depending on the ability of the athlete. A frame supports the bucket, legs, and feet, and is mounted on two skate blades attached under the bucket. Straps keep the player secure in the sled.
Instead of one hockey stick, players use two for propulsion, passing, and shooting. The sticks may be up to 100 cm long (roughly 3 feet) but are usually between 75-95 cm and can be wood, aluminum, or composite materials. The sticks have metal picks on one end for players to propel themselves. Those with limited grip can have sticks secured to their hands allowing them to participate.
