Registration is under way for Rockford Park Districts Blaze Hockey, a new sports offering where players with physical disabilities learn the fast-paced sport as they maneuver on sleds across the ice.
The program is for players ages 6-17, and ages 18 and older; those with mobility needs do not have to use a wheelchair on a daily basis to play. Helmets, sticks, sleds and jerseys are provided. The next session runs Thursdays, Feb. 16-March 23, 6:40-7:20 p.m., at Carlson Ice Arena.
Registration continues throughout the season by mail, fax (with credit card) and in person at Carlson Ice Arena, 4150 N. Perryville Rd., Loves Park. Fees are $25; $30 non-resident.
For a registration or more info, call 987-1600 (voice/TTY) or 987-8800 (TTY, 963-DEAF).
