WOODBRIDGE — The Woodbridge Police Department and Woodbridge Police Benevolent Association will face off against the Woodbridge Township United Spinal Youth Warriors Ice Hockey Team Saturday in the sled hockey match of the year.
The Woodbridge Warriors Ice Hockey Team includes 10- to 18-year old players who are physically and/or developmentally challenged. Sled hockey competition for challenged youth players was first developed in Norway and has spread across the globe allowing challenged youngsters to participate in ice hockey – the most popular winter sport in the world. Athletes sit on sleds made of tubular framing supported by metal skate blades. The sled is propelled by picks that are also used to shoot and pass the puck. The Woodbridge Warriors are sponsored by the United Spinal Association.
The Woodbridge Police Department and Woodbridge Police Benevolent Association will present $6,200 to the Woodbridge Warriors. The hockey game, starting at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, April 20, at the Woodbridge Community Center Ice Hockey Center,
600 Main Street, Woodbridge, is free… a $5 donation to support the team is encouraged. All proceeds benefit the Woodbridge Warriors Spinal Youth Hockey Team. For more information, contact the Woodbridge Township Recreation Department at 1-732-596-4045.
