US Women’s Sled Hockey Team Works to be Recognized in the Paralympics

In 2007, this team gathered a group of women para-athletes from different places and age ranges to compete. With the lack of women in the sport, they play against male teams. They currently are not able to compete in the Paralympics, because they are an all girls team and Women’s sled hockey is not yet recognized as a sport. The team is looking for sponsors and support of the country to be able to play in the 2022 Paralympics.
