The Sled Hockey Foundation (SHF), in collaboration with the Cornerstone Arena located in Lockport, NY, held a Just Try It event on Sunday, April 29th. Three-time sled hockey gold medalist Adam Page was on hand fresh off team USA’s latest gold medal victory at the 2018 Paralympic Games in PyeongChang, South Korea.

Participants of the event were able to try sled hockey, many for the first time, as well as learn the different aspects of the game from Adam himself.  Adam was also on hand after the event to sign autographs and discuss team USA’s amazing Paralympic journey from his point of view.

“It’s been a great year – unbelievable to win three straight Paralympic Gold Medals! I like sharing that experience with people in the area who want to see sled hockey grow,” commented Adam after the event.

The Sled Hockey Foundation is working with Cornerstone Arena to establish a sled hockey program in Lockport. There will be two more Just Try It events this spring, first on Sunday, May 20th and then on Sunday, June 17th.  Each of these events are from 4:20 p.m. to 6:20 p.m.  Anyone interested in participating is encouraged to come out and get in a sled.

We would like to thank the Cornerstone Arena, as well as the participants, in making our Just Try It event a huge success! These events at Cornerstone Arena are made possible by generous support from the Grigg Lewis Foundation.
