Makenna’s brother and dad play hockey and love to skate, but because of her low muscle tone and struggles with balance, she hasn’t been able to skate with them. Makenna, her brother and her mom attended a CTN “Try it” Sledge event in 2019 and were introduced to a new sport to enjoy with the whole family. Once Makenna got the hang of moving across the ice and shooting the puck with her sticks, she was excited to show her dad how she could play hockey too. Since the COVID-19 pandemic, Makenna’s family borrowed sleds from CTN to play sledge hockey together on their local community ice. This has enabled Makenna and her family to have fun and play hockey together.
Look at Makenna hitting the ice to try sledge hockey for the first time!
Families can borrow sledges for two weeks through CTN’s Recreational Loan Program. Speak to your child’s team to see if this would be a good fit for your child or you can contact email@example.com for more information.
Before you borrow a sledge, here’s what you need to know about contactless pick up and drop off:
