Alberta Sledge is Alberta’s provincial sledge hockey team. Our team is the reigning four-time national sledge hockey champions. Our team won the 2016 Canadian Sledge Hockey Championship (CSHC) in Leduc, Alberta, the 2017 CSHC in Boucherville, Quebec, the 2018 CSHC in Vancouver, British Columbia, and the 2019 CSHC in Elmira, Ontario. We are a non-profit sports team.
The beginning: Alberta Sledge was founded in 2014, with the purpose of bringing together top Alberta sledge hockey players and growing the sport’s presence in Alberta. Our goal is to support Alberta sledge hockey players in achieving excellence and long-term participation in the sport. Since our organization was first established, the City of Leduc has been one of our biggest supporters; they made the Leduc Recreation Centre our home ice. We partnered with the city three years ago to create the first-ever Canadian Sledge Hockey Championship held in Leduc, Alberta. The first-ever Canadian Sledge Hockey Championships was a success and now is an annual tournament hosted by a different province every year.
We provide our athletes with high quality training camps hosted throughout the season led by Canadian Paralympians Steve Arsenault (Alberta Sledge Head Coach) and Chris Cederstrand (Alberta Sledge Assistant Coach). Our team then competes at the Canadian Sledge Hockey Championships annually in May, showcasing their hard work they put in throughout the season.
We are committed to making a positive impact in our athletes lives and developing sledge hockey players in Alberta. Alberta Sledge has implemented a developmental and competitive program where players can find themselves working to improving their skills.
