Blind hockey has been around Calgary for 30+ years and now it’s time to show you what we are all about! We invite everyone to come play or watch and join in on the fun whether you are full, partially sighted, or legally blind. Hockey is a high tempo, fast-paced game, and with a special puck and some rule modifications, blind and visually impaired Calgarians are able to play Canada’s game.
We are always looking for:
- Teams to play against. We play fully sighted teams but make our opponents wear modified goggles that simulate various eye disorders
- Fully sighted volunteer players who play along side the blind and visually impaired players
- Blind and visually impaired Calgarians who want to experience the fun of playing ice hockey
