2011 World Sledge Hockey Challenge - Bid Information Package

Since its debut at the 1994 Lillehammer Paralympics, sledge hockey has grown dramatically and is now participated in by athletes in over twelve (12) countries, governed by the IPC, through the International Paralympic Ice Hockey Committee. It has quickly become the biggest spectator draw at the Paralympic Winter Games.

With the growth of the game and administrative inclusion of Sledge Hockey, Hockey Canada would like to extend every effort to educate fans and promote the game.

The inaugural World Sledge Hockey Challenge was hosted March 2007 in Kelowna, BC, and November 2008 and 2009 in Charlottetown, PEI. The World Sledge Hockey Challenge is a four (4) team, international tournament. The 2011 World Sledge Hockey Challenge would be scheduled to be held during the month of March 2011 with a tournament format, which is TBD.
