Goalball

Fall has come and it’s time to start up the 2019/20 Goalball Season!
Are you interested in trying out goalball?
Goalball is a team sport where players all wear eyeshades to create an equal playing field. Three players play on each side of the court, use tactile tape to move around the court and while listening for the audible ball to block. The ball is throw by one team while the opposing defend their goal.

Blind Hockey

Are you interested in trying out hockey? Consider joining the Edmonton SeeHawks!
The game is modified by an adapted puck that makes noise, and is both bigger and slower than a traditional puck. Players’ levels of vision range from legally blind – approximately 10% vision or less – to totally blind, with the lowest vision athletes playing defence or goal. The team is always welcoming new recruits!
