*Please be aware that joining the sledge hockey program means you are joining a team and requires commitments beyond just attending the weekly program. The team plays league games against Calgary Junior sledge hockey teams in Calgary and Edmonton on weekends throughout the season (3-4 weekends). The team typically plays in at least 2 tournaments each season: Kindersley Tournament- end of November & Matt Cook Cup (Western Canada tournament)- end of March. In order to take part in these events each year, all members of the team must help with fundraising efforts. Each family should expect to volunteer approximately 10-20+ hours per season (varies depending on roles with the team). Please speak with program coordinator Stephanie if you have any concerns or questions about this.
