Semasco supports Sledge Hockey
Para-Ice Hockey is a hockey-related disabled sport and paralympic discipline. The field of play, the clothes and most of the rules of the game are the same as ice hockey. The only difference is in the locomotion, since the para-hockey players do not move on skates, but on small sledges. To speed up the players use two short clubs, which are occupied in the end with spikes. A game is divided into thirds of 15 minutes each.
Until 2016, the sport was referred to as sledge ice hockey (sled ice hockey).
Para-ice hockey is primarily operated by physically impaired athletes, where the mobility of the lower limbs is limited. In the national area, however, players without physical disabilities can also play.
