The day’s festivities will center on a non-competitive, round-robin sledge hockey tournament between Robin Hood’s sledge hockey teams (comprised of adults with developmental disabilities) and corporate and community-based teams. The event will also feature over a dozen free, family-friendly activities throughout Millennium Place, including a sledge free-skate, NHL celebrity appearance and autograph session, an instant photobooth, face painting, kids crafts, mini stick hockey, a Zamboni tour, scooter board hockey, free massage sessions, box hockey, raffle, 50/50, skills competition, and opening and closing ceremonies.
Teams register in the day-long tournament by way of sponsorship. Each team has the option of registering a complete team of 6, or a team of 5 – in which case they are paired with one of Robin Hood’s sledge hockey athletes to act as Team Captain on a total team of 6. Businesses and community groups play against each other and against Robin Hood’s sledge hockey teams. Games are 30 minutes long and played in round robin format without elimination.
Sledge Hockey Day’s main objective is to build community. It achieves this by promoting the development of natural, inclusive relationships between Robin Hood’s 30+ sledge hockey athletes, 120 participants on corporate- and community-based teams, over 110 event volunteers, and 500+ anticipated event attendees comprised of the Robin Hood community and the broader community of Sherwood Park, Edmonton and surrounding areas.
Sledge Hockey Day aims to promote inclusive sport and uphold individuals with disabilities as bona fide athletes and contributing members of their communities.
