Adaptive Hike

Athletes with physical and intellectual disabilities are encouraged to join us for a guided adaptive hike through Lake Louisa State Park. No experience necessary! Hikers will also learn about the cultural, historical, and environmental points of significance at Lake Louisa!

This one mile course is flat and wide enough for both manual and power wheelchairs. There may be some beginner obstacles like small roots, but nothing our athletes can’t handle. Hiking wheelchairs designed for rocky trails from GRIT Freedom Chair and Tracked Mobility will be available to those who’d like to give them a try!

Sled Hockey

Try sled hockey through the Central Florida Dreamplex’s newly-formed program!  These practices are open to all children and adults with physical disabilities ages 6 and up, and are open to those trying for the first time or to those who have experience and want to improve their skills.  Practices will divide participants into age and skill appropriate groups on the ice.  All equipment will be provided!  Join us as we begin building a sled hockey program for all Orlando-area residents!

Sled hockey follows most of the typical ice hockey rules with the exception of some equipment. Players sit in specially designed sleds that sit on top of two hockey skate blades. There are two sticks for each player instead of one and the sticks have metal picks on the butt end for players to propel themselves.
