Accessible Media Inc. presents the 2018 Canadian National Blind Hockey Tournament brought to you by CNIB

Canadian Blind Hockey's marquee event returns to Ryerson University's Mattamy Athletic Centre for the 6th straight year, taking place over Easter weekend from March 30 - April 1. The tournament format for 2018 will feature three divisions:

The Low Vision and Development Division will have two teams that will engage in a practice on Friday night, followed by a best-of-three game series on Saturday and Sunday. This division will give newer players, as well as skaters with the lowest vision or no vision the opportunity to compete with and against athletes who are at a similar level of play.

The Open Division will feature a four team round-robin tournament, followed by bronze and gold medal games on Sunday. This division returns to the tournament's roots, and promises to offer some exciting Sunday action as the teams vie for the gold medal and event championship!

New in 2018 is the Children and Youth Division. This exciting new ice time will allows kids who are blind or partially sighted to join in on the fun with buzzer hockey scrimmages on two-thirds ice to allow for age appropriate competition as well as a learn to skate area.

As always the tournament is 100% free to come watch and will feature a live-web broadcast. For volunteer and or sponsorship opportunities please email info@blindicehockey.com
