Floor Hockey

Floor hockey is adapted from the games of ice hockey and ringette and is the only team sport in Special Olympics Winter Sports. Floor hockey is played in a rink surfaced with wood or concrete, not ice. The teams are composed of six players, including a goalie. Athletes use wooden poles (without blades) as sticks and large felt discs with an open centre as pucks.

Special Olympics Floor Hockey also offers individual skills competition to allow athletes to train and compete in basic floor hockey skills. The development of these key skills is necessary prior to advancing to team play.
