EQUIPMENT

Equipment for the sport consists of a tubular framed sledge, about 1.5 meters (4-5 feet) long and approximately 7 cm (3 inches of the ice, with two hockey skate blades mounted beneath the seat. A portion of the front frame rests on the ice and provides lateral stability. Straps around the ankles, knees, and waist securely hold the player on the sledge. 

Two half meter (1.5 foot) “sticks” are used. The “sticks” are modified hockey sticks with 4 cm teeth attached to the bottom of the non-blade end. Leaning left or right while digging the stick into the ice turns the sled. Players slide to a stop on one or both blades like a skater. All players wear regulation protective hockey equipment.
