2019 Hendrickson Foundation Tournament in Minneapolis

Date: Feb 20-23
Location: National Sports Center (Blaine MN)

Manitoba Sledge hockey will be participating in the Hendrickson Foundation tournament held in Minneapolis. They are providing an opportunity to travel and challenge other Sledge hockey teams in North America. The benefits the Hendrickson Foundation provides to people who use a wheelchair, have a loss of limb, have intellectual disabilities or were injured serving our country in the military are significant. The values for life gained by the lessons from sport affect both the individuals and their families. Being on the ice improves physical and mental health. For many of these players, it’s the end of retreating inward and the beginning of reaching out socially to participate, create friendships, and have some fun!

Our workshops have taken us to many places including Winnipeg, Brandon, Dauphin, Portage La Prairie, Winkler, Morden, Morris, and Selkirk.

Are you hosting a workshop, team building exercise, or want to learn about para-sports in a fun atmosphere? We will take care of all the equipment, setup, and on-ice trainers to provide instructions on the basic skills of Sledge Hockey. All you have to do is book the ice and we will come.
