OTTAWA, ONTARIO – Twenty-four of Canada’s top sledge hockey players are in Ottawa, ON at the Sensplex (1565 Maple Grove Road) in Kanata, Ontario from August 25-27, 2006 for Canada’s National Sledge Hockey Team Selection Camp.

The Camp roster features 15 returning players who won gold with Canada’s National Sledge Hockey Team at the 2006 Paralympic Winter Games in Turin, ITA and nine more players who attended the June Development Camp in Ottawa, ON.

The camp roster made up of three goalies, five defensemen, and 16 forwards will be divided into Red and White teams, and will play three intrasquad games during the three day camp.

At the conclusion of the Selection Camp, a roster of 17 players will be selected by Head Coach Jeff Snyder and his assistant coaches, Mark Gallant and Shawn Frydberg to make up Canada’s 2006-07 National Sledge Hockey Team. Canada’s National Sledge Hockey Team will compete in multiple international tournaments throughout the 2006-07 season beginning in October.

Sledge hockey is the Paralympic version of hockey and, since its debut on the Paralympic program at the 1994 Lillehammer Paralympic Winter Games, it has become one of the biggest attractions for spectators at the Paralympic Winter Games. It is fast-paced, highly physical and played by male athletes with a physical disability in the lower part of the body. Canada captured its first ever sledge hockey gold medal at the 2006 Paralympic Winter Games, defeating Norway 3-0, defending World Champions, in the final game.
