CBRMHA Blind Hockey Yearly Program Announcement Details

November 2, 2018

 

CBR Minor Hockey and Newfoundland Blind Ice Hockey along with their Sponsor the CBS Lions Club are thrilled to offer a weekly Blind Ice hockey program again this year.  This program provides the opportunity for those with Visual impairments to learn and play Canada’s beloved game.

We anticipate a 12 week program (start date is Sunday, November 11th at 10am at RFM Stadium), and are pleased to inform you that these sessions are free of charge and equipment can be made available for those that need it.  The program services the Avalon Peninsula for players Minor Hockey aged, both Female and Male.

Last season at year end, we were fortunate enough to be able to send three of our players to Toronto (100% funded) to take part in the Canadian Blind Ice Hockey National Tournament, it was an amazing experience for them.  This year we are hoping to send even more.

Blind Ice Hockey is a rapidly growing sport and has just recently held its first ever International Tournament in Pittsburgh in which Team Canada came away victorious.  With the sport growing as it is, the goal is for Blind Ice hockey to be a part of the Paralympics by 2026 and of course our goal is to have representation from Newfoundland on that team.  The Sky is the limit.

If you are interested in joining this weekly program please contact Stephen Joy at newfoundlandblindicehockey@gmail.com or 240-8874.
