Nashville Sled Preds, Jr. Sled Preds, & Knoxville Sled Bears

Sled hockey follows most of the typical ice hockey rules with the exception of some of the equipment. Players sit in specially designed sleds that sit on top of two hockey skate blades.

The program offers two adult teams and a Jr. team in Nashville (Sled Preds), and an adult team (Sled Bears) in Knoxville. Our Tier II Sled Preds will play a series of invitational tournaments from Colorado to South Florida. The Sled Preds Tier IV and Knoxville Sled Bears are members of the Southeastern Sled Hockey League competing against teams from NC, GA, VA, and FL. The Jr. Sled Preds competes in several invitational tournaments throughout the season. All four teams will finish the season at the Disabled Hockey Festival national tournament in Chicago this coming April.
