Learn More About Sled Hockey

Why do we like skating and sled hockey?

It’s fun, accessible, and efficient! Teton Valley Foundation has worked hard to make Kotler Ice Arena inviting and accessible. They have built an expanded warming hut, wheelchair ramps, ample dressing rooms and accessible bathrooms. The staff is supportive and stoked about getting you on ice! Hockey is efficient. Show up, 10 minutes of set-up with equipment, slide down the ramp onto the ice, skate, sled, pass the puck, shoot the puck, break a sweat (you’re seldom cold when you’re out on the ice), 60 minutes of fun and you’re done.

What does skating or sled hockey at Kotler Ice Arena look like?

Learning to skate or sled can be intimidating. We have equipment and knowledgeable helpers to get you started and teach you the basics. Rental skates, on-ice walkers, and hockey sticks are available. Want to try sled hockey? We have five sleds provided by a grant from USA Hockey and five more donated by Teton Adaptive Sports. We have pusher bars if you need assistance. Everyone in the program is provided helmet, gloves and elbow pads. See some instructional videos below including Paralympic team members showing Sled Hockey 101 skills, a sled hockey setup, and a sled hockey pusher!

Who Makes Sled Hockey Possible?

Teton Valley Foundation and the Kotler Ice Arena Staff work hard to make skating and hockey fun and available for the Teton Valley Community. The amazing capital campaign to install “chillers” at the rink in 2018 allows for a predictable 17 weeks of solid ice. Teton Adaptive Sports is fiscal sponsor for Valley Adaptive Sports. And, Sled Hockey Saturdays is made possible by a grant from The Gibney Family Foundation. Special thanks to our wonderful volunteer crew who make the ice time fun. If you can, please volunteer this year!
