PAGE 22 SLEDGE The BC Hockey Sledge Program continued their support of the Soldier On Program this season during their Allied Winter Sports Camp in Whistler BC. Forty-five 45 injured military personnel from Canada the United States Great Britain and Australia came together to participate and try various adaptive sports. The inspiring week saw both experienced and rookie players figuring out how to move the sleds and playing against each other. Jim Babcock National Sledge Hockey Team and Bruce Redding National Sledge Development Team did a great job introducing the game to the attendees. BC Hockey also worked with the Victoria Wheelchair Sport Club to develop a Try Sledge Hockey Program in Victoria. With BC Hockeys equipment the group met weekly at the Juan de Fuca Recreation Centre. The program ran for six 6 weeks and facilitators from the University of Victoria UVIC and Camosun College assisted people who were interested in trying the sport. Approximately 60 people attended over the course of the season which is looking to continue to next season. This was the first sledge hockey programming on Vancouver Island.
