Welcome to the British Para Ice Hockey Association.
Para Ice Hockey is a variant of ice hockey and can be played on and off ice, using sledges to allow participants to move about the rink at high speeds hitting a puck travelling at speeds of up to 100kph.
Players sit in adapted sledges, propelling themselves with sticks adapted to allow propulsion in a manner similar to skiing. As players are strapped to a sledge everybody has the same restrictions, regardless of whether or not the player has a disability.
Sledge Hockey was first introduced into Great Britain in 1981 and the British Sledge Hockey Association (BSHA, now the BPIH) was formed in 1995 order to promote and develop the sport.
