Ball Hockey

It's Hockey on your Feet!

"Ball hockey is such a wonderful opportunity, a wonderful experience, and for people who enjoy the game [of hockey, in general] …. But skating is such a hurdle to the game of ice hockey. I love that ball hockey is in the family. It's the same idea and I hope that people see it as more accessible but still as equal opportunity to play the game of hockey."
