In 2010 there were 4 Blind Hockey teams across Canada. The Hiboux de Montréal, Toronto Ice Owls Blind Hockey Club, Calgary Seeing Ice Dogs Hockey Team and Vancouver Eclipse Hockey Team.
Fast forward to 2020 and there are now 14 Blind Hockey teams/programs across Canada! Canadian Blind Hockey also hosts, Learn to Skate programs with school boards across the country, Summer Development Blind Hockey Camps, Regional Blind Hockey Tournaments, Canadian National Blind Hockey Tournament, Canadian National Blind Hockey Team, and our brand new Women’s Blind Hockey Program.
The sport of Blind Hockey is definitely growing in our backyards with new Blind Hockey players constantly joining programs from across Canada. Throughout the last 10 years, we have noticed significant growth in all our programs and events across the country.
Canadian Blind Hockey is excited for the next ten years, and for the fastest growing Parasport on ice played by athletes who are blind and or partially sighted to continue to grow to one day inclusion in the Paralympic Games.
