Sled hockey is an exciting, full contact, high energy sport that follows typical ice hockey rules with the exception of equipment. Players use specially designed sleds that sit on top of two hockey skate blades and use two sticks with metal pics on the butt end to propel themselves. Both able-bodied and physically disabled athletes are encouraged to get on the ice and play!
San Diego Ducks Sled Hockey is a USA Hockey, U.S. Paralympic, and NHL recognized sled hockey club providing clinics, recreational and competitive teams, and resources for those interested in pursuing national, international, and Paralympic competition for physically disabled youth and adults. We use hockey as a tool to teach athletes to not make excuses due to their disabilities but to overcome their challenges and become a productive member of society on and off the ice. We are more than just hockey; we teach a positive mindset that saves lives and inspires others.
The San Diego Ducks club consists of disabled and able-bodied athletes ages 5 and older, including active duty military and veterans. We currently have three teams: a youth house (recreational) team, an adult house team, and an adult travel (competitive) team. All teams play year-round with two seasons: Winter (September – April) and Summer (May – August). Join our club by playing or volunteering!
