Washington blind hockey club

What is Blind Hockey?

Blind Hockey is the same exhilarating, fast-paced sport as ice hockey with only one main difference – ALL OF THE PLAYERS ARE LEGALLY BLIND. 


Players’ levels of vision range from legally blind – approximately 10% vision or less – to totally blind. Blind Hockey is an excellent spectator sport as it is easily recognizable to the average hockey fan, with minimal rule adaptations to help with gameplay and player safety.

Mission

The Washington Blind Hockey Club's mission is to provide visually impaired people of all ages and abilities the opportunity to enjoy hockey.
