Volt Hockey

How to Play

Volt is a unique adaptation to the sport of hockey as it allows participants who have more complex needs – particularly those with limited upper mobility, to be able to play the sport that extends beyond other adaptive variations of hockey today (including sledge hockey and wheelchair hockey). Volt is played as a 3 vs 3 game on an indoor gym or court using specially designed hockey sport chairs. The chairs are battery operated and are controlled with a joystick. This allows virtually any person living with mobility limitations the ability to play the sport of hockey independently.

Volt opens the door for more children and community members to play a sport that they otherwise would not be able to because of physical limitations due to their disability. Alberta is the second province in our country to host Volt. We believe that every child should have an opportunity to play sports regardless of what their disability may be.

Note: Though Volt was created to bring a new adapted sport to the disability community and open up new opportunities persons with disabilities to engage in sport, we welcome all community members to sign up for our Volt recreation league regardless of ability.
